Cleaning Up Your Child
Use a damp flannel to clean your child first.
Cleaning Up A Small Tray
Place the tray into the sink and run the tap to make the paint runnier.
Cleaning A Large Tray
Scoop the worst of the paint into a bowl that can be placed into the sink, and make the paint runnier by adding more water. Next, wipe the tray with a dry piece of kitchen roll and an anti-bac wipe.
