Beware, house-proud parents. These kids are ruthless with their mess.
We've rounded up 12 videos that prove that being house-proud and a proud parent don’t necessarily go hand in hand.
Be prepared for recurring themes of flour, marker pens, and very patient parents.

4. Flour power 2.0

At a certain point, it’s time for kids and their soft toys to go their separate ways. Ever heard of letting them down easy? This kid hasn't.
11. Frisbee fail
Not sure what this kid expected to happen, playing Frisbee indoors. Better get ready for a timeout.

No sarcastic comments here – this can happen to anyone, any time. That’s why you should always wear the Wii wrist strap.
Sorry again Dad.
It’s worth remembering that accidental damage like this isn’t usually covered by a standard home insurance policy, so for these kinds of mishaps, you might need an upgrade.
