It’s easy to have fun in the Texas sun. But even Texas has some unpleasant days sometimes when you just want to stay inside and not leave the house. As parents, you want to be prepared for those days as they can be challenging.

We recently came across eatsleepdoodle, who offers a wide range of stationery and textile products that come with a set of wash-out pens so you can color, draw, doodle, design and personalize your very own textiles. Then, when you’re ready, just put them in the machine on a warm or cool wash and all the ink completely disappears, ready to be re-drawn, re-colored and re-customized.
