It is extremely important to make sure that your little ones drink regularly to avoid heatstroke, especially when playing outside for extended hours. One of my favorite ways to do it is to make it fun! I did this by dressing up a plain, cheap water bottle with inspiration from one of his favorite characters.

 

When I showed it to him, he got excited, squealed, and started talking to the bottle. Yup, there are certain things only toddlers can get away with…

2. Paint two black circles facing different directions for the “manic” look.

Once again, the acrylics alone will not hold up. If you want to seal it, I’d suggest brushing some clear nail polish over the area, or a thin layer of mod podge. Let me know how that works…

 

Another note: I would not recommend washing something that you hand painted in the dishwasher, unless you use dishwasher safe mod podge. Since my dishwasher is my husband, this is not an issue for me, but do keep this in mind!
