NALEDI Metal Tube Squeezer

I've talked about getting a Metal Tube Squeezer for years. It's kind of an odd thing to want. As an artist I find that I could use one for paint. As a Mother I find that I could use one for toothpaste.

Where to Get the NALEDI Metal Tube Squeezer:

You can get it on Amazon Prime for $12.99 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XYN79GL

It comes in a nice box that's a little bigger than a wallet.

What Can This Metal Tube Squeezer Be Used for:

  • Paint Tubes
  • Toothpaste
  • Hand creams
  • Lotions 
  • Cosmetics
  • Glues

...and anything else that comes in a tube.

How is it Used?

Put the base of the tube in the squeezer. Hold the two metal sections below tight. Start turning it with your other hand. It squeezes all the stuff in the tube to the top. It leaves no air; making the product last longer.

I pictured it two different ways. I did this on purpose. The top photo below is for left handed people. My Dad is left handed, so when I realized it could be used this way I thought I should point that out. The bottom is for right handed people like me. It's easiest to turn it with your more dominate hand. you just flip it over and can use it whatever way you'd like.

Does Everyone Need a Tube Squeezer:

No, but for me it's certainly handy! It's one of those want items. Not a need item.

I will get more paint or anything out of a tube than I ever would without the metal tube squeezer. To me that's worth it. I don't like to waist things at all!

I can use it on paint in the classroom, and at home on toothpaste. Isaak get to the bottom of the toothpaste tube, and has to have us help him every time.

Could you use a metal tube squeezer? What would you use it for?

#Snow #Angel Art Project for Kids

Merry Christmas!

Snow Angel are so pretty! I liked making them because they were fast to make. Lay down, move your arms and feet up and down, boom you have a Snow Angel.

This craft will be another one that shows up on ParentSavvy.com. It's written differently, and will have other pictures.

What You Will Need:
  • Black or Dark Paper or Foam Board
  • 2 or 3 Light Colors of Acrylic or Tempera Paint 
  • White Acrylic Paint or White Gesso
  • A Target or Walmart Plastic Bag
  • Clear Shelf Paper, or Sticky Vinyl 
  • Newspaper Protect Your Working Surface
  • A Sharp Pencil
  • Scissors 
  • A Blow Dryer to Speed the Drying Time
  • Painter's or Masking Tape
  • An Cookie Cutter - Angel Style
Snow Angel Craft:

1: Cover your working surface to protect it. We're about to make a fun mess. 

It's not too messy, but you'll want to protect your table for sure. 

2: Wrinkle up a plastic bag, dip it in white, and hit your black or dark paper with it.

Let it dry. You may want a blow dryer handy. We used one quite a bit during this craft because Isaak and I couldn't wait for the next step.

Hit it up with another light color. Isaak used a French Grey. You can use any light color.

3: Get out the sticky vinyl or cheap-o shelf paper. 

4: We're about to make some angels. 

Roll the vinyl or shelf paper out. Draw 2 or 3 angles on there. You can use an angel cookie cutter to trace around. Isaak insisted on drawing his own.

 Cut them out, and place them on the paper. Make sure the paint is dry first!

 5: Add more paint on with a scrunched up plastic bag. Watch your angels disappear. 

Let the paint dry.

Add another coat of another light color. This time Isaak decided on a light teal.

6: Make sure the paint is dry. Peel the shelf paper up! 

End Result:

That's it. It's really that simple. You can throw the angel shelf paper pieces away, or opt to keep them like Isaak did.
