We asked our Facebook fans: “What’s the worst mess your toddler’s ever made?” Here’s what the they had to say.

Eeuw!!! It’s poo!!!

Taking their dirty nappy off and painting the walls with it, and having lots of fun doing it! - Tracey Wright

Smearing poo all over the back seat of the Jeep - Sumanda Maritz

Coming out into the garden to see my 18 month old who I had left on a blanket playing squeezing his fingers through a wet mushy dog poo he had found. I nearly barfed while cleaning him. - Allison Wainwright

Showcasing their art. Yikes!

My first daughter is quite good with not messing, but she did once draw all over my mom's antique wing back chair with crayons. - Megan Stow

Writing on my white couch with a black permanent marker. - Rochelle Barrish

Scribbled on my white duvet with chalk and once poured my lotion all over herself and made quite a mess on the floor. - Aneesa Chohan

The eldest was quite good with keeping 'clean' - he just empties liquid soap everywhere. The youngest has done the permanent marker on my (white) car, and the kitchen cupboards, and emptied a bottle of baby lotion in my bedroom. & smeared it into everything! - Rebecca Van Eeden

It’s a mess everywhere!

My nephew took to emptying out an entire bottle of baby powder. All over his sister, bed, floor, windows and walls. Sjoe, the vacuuming! - Robyn Addinall

Got into a 5litre bottle of cooking oil, poured it all over the kitchen floor and literally swam in it!! - Maryna Schoch

Amy (about 3) got hold of a bottle of self tan and smeared herself from top to bottom (even in her hair) I put her in the shower but her skin was stained and she looked terrible! - Mandy Crouse

My son wasn't a toddler. He was 9/10 - I just got a new car and with it came a cleaning kit and he offered to give the car a car wash! After a while he came telling me that the shampoo didn't work well. I asked what he meant and he said just come and see....he had used the whole bottle of polish! My silver car was now white! and who was left to polish it?....yeah, you are guessing right. - Nadia Thonnard
