Mum shows the genius way she stops wasting paper when her kids want to colour

A MUM of three has gone viral for sharing an ingenious kids colouring hack in a TikTok video, with other parents praising her ingenuity.

In a now-viral TikTok video captioned: “Kids coloring hack! No more papers everywhere”, Kristin reveals how she reduces the mess of colouring and prevents piles of paper stacking up everywhere. 

In the video, the mum can be seen taping a large piece of paper across an entire table and allowing her children to doodle on the paper. The paper was secured with sticky tape underneath the edges of the table.

The teacher loves the hack because it means there’s a limited amount of paper used and she doesn’t have to worry about pen ending up on the table by accident. 

Other parents were impressed with the smart mum’s hack and couldn’t believe that they hadn’t thought of it themselves. 

One TikTok user commented: “Genius idea!” 

Another tagged a friend and said: “why have we never thought of this??” 

One added: “I love this!” 

One user suggested: “use old wrapping paper” to which Kristin replied: “That’s a great idea!!”
