Craft Ideas to Let Kids Be Messy Without Making a Mess
Kids are messy. This is a fact of life anyone with kids or has been around kids knows. You want to let them let their creativity shine, but you also don’t want to deal with a lot of tedious clean-up or stains in your carpet or upholstery. Sometimes the best way to clean is preventing the mess in the first place. Here are some ideas to contain the mess, or even make it mess-free.
Use banqueting paper to simply pick it up and throw away. It can stay fairly cost effective if you buy in bulk.
Use the old towels and sheets in your linen closet. Fitted sheets are great to contain the mess. Put something large enough in each corner to hold the sheet flat and you’ve got a contained area.
Put it in a bag! Draw a simple outline on a Ziploc bag (a tree, a fish, etc…), put some appropriately colored paint in the bag, tape the top shut so paint will not come out the top and let your kid squish around paint in the bag and watch what happens to the colors.
Another idea for using a Ziploc is to put the paint in the bag with some shaving cream. They can squish the colors around with the shaving cream and watch them combine. It’s a great way to explore color mixing without making a mess.
Let them paint with water! Grab a piece of construction paper, give them a wet paintbrush, and see what they create without the mess of paint.

Even the tracks are REALLY cleaned. A GREAT job by a very good crew. My windows just sparkled and the crew could not have been better. I would most highly recommend top car cleaning.

Roger G.Google Review - Gutter Cleaning Carpet Cleaning Window Cleaning
When I needed to use a walker after extensive surgery, Top Care Cleaning picked up our large wool, braided rugs, cleaned them beautifully, stored them, and delivered them when I was better. They have cleaned our windows and screens inside and outside four times and will do so again this fall. They have also Soft Washed our house. more than willing to deal with any situation. We are persnickety elders, who could not be more satisfied with Top Care Cleaning.
The whole experience was excellent. The person answering the phone was pleasant. The crew that cleaned our windows were courteous and extremely efficient. They did an excellent job. We were very happy with the results and would definitely use Top Care again.

I have had Top Care for probably 20+ years and have worked with a lot of really nice and professional people. From making the appointment to paying the bill, everyone knows their jobs. Never had a problem and my carpets always look great went the cleaning is done. I would highly recommend them, always!

We had our gutters cleaned in June. Top Care Cleaning was prompt when answering my inquiry. They were very professional and efficient. They went beyond what was expected by sending us pictures and locations of a couple of gutters that need replacing. Would highly recommend them.

Top Care has cleaned our carpet over the last 5 years and there service is always prompt and good. They get the job done and in a way that makes you feel valued. I have never found myself waiting for their team to show up. The quality of their work is excellent. I would recommend them highly for any carpet cleaning.
Alison HAngies List Review - Carpet Cleaning
Top Care is our favorite! They have been cleaning our carpet and area rugs for about ten years, and for the past two years all of our windows too. I appreciate the helpful, kind crews; as well as their attention to professionalism and excellence.
My only concern is that when they clean our windows, they get them so clean we have birds running into them for days.
Highly recommend Top Care!

Mary H.Facebook Review - Gutter Cleaning & Window Cleaning
I have had the pleasure of using Top Care Cleaning Services for over 15 years. They have always cleaned my carpets and rugs annually as well as my windows. I have had two "emergency" situations, one dealing with spilled paint on a new carpet, and the other was badly soiled white sofa and chairs after a move. Both times, Top Care was there quickly. They are a top-notch company. I give them an A+!
