While these ambitious activities often create sweet memories, they can also end up being complete disasters. Thankfully, many brave parents are willing to share their activity fails on Instagram, hilariously documenting the hours spent cleaning slime, flour, and paint off of every surface. Whether or not you’ve been brave enough to try these activities out in your home, we hope these fails will give you a moment of levity.
Summer is here and there’s lots of family fun to look forward to — pool time, days at the beach, backyard BBQs and a much more flexible schedule. That doesn’t mean that the days are all fun in the sun, though; there are still meals to make, houses to clean, tantrums to deal with, and all that comes with managing life with kids. All that kind of fun doesn’t end just because it’s summer!
