Summertime is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited! We love to fill our day with fun family activities! From playing outside in the park to enjoying an ice-cream treat together, we’re always on the go. As you can imagine, we encounter more than a few messes along the way! No worries, though! I stock my purse, travel bag and car with Wet Ones® Hand Wipes. They’re never far from my reach! Read on for how they come in handy during our favorite summer activities, plus check out an amazing Wet Ones® Summer Fun Giveaway!
3 Reasons We Stock Up on Wet Ones® Hand Wipes for Our Summer Activities
Cleaning up messy playground hands
Homework for the school year is over, so we’ve been spending our time after school at the park and playing in the back yard. My son particularly likes to challenge me to a foot race around the park, playground, or backyard. With all this running and jumping we’ve experienced dirty hands, especially if we go after a rainstorm! I like to keep a pack of Wet Ones® Hand Wipes Singles in the diaper bag or my purse to clean up those muddy fingers so my car doesn’t get covered in dirty hand prints on the way home!
Avoiding melty messy meltdowns
After the park the kids are hungry and it’s treat time. Since it’s hot outside you know they want ice cream and popsicles on the way home. There is no better treat after playing outside for a couple hours. While my children love getting messy on the playground, they do not like getting messy with food. In fact, you can count on a meltdown of epic proportions if their ice cream cone is dripping through their napkin and getting their hands sticky.
When this happens I just open the middle console in my car and pass back the Wet Ones® Hand Wipes Canister so that they can clean their hands. I like to keep a larger container in the car. The travel size is great for putting in a bag, but the car tends to be the place where you just need more.
Road Trip Cleanup
As we plan our summer road trip we’re looking for ways to keep the car clean, organized, and spacious. My favorite way to make road trips peaceful is to pack an activity bag for each kid. We’ve tried storing the activities in many different ways, but the most effective for us is to pack a small backpack for each child. We fill it with books, coloring books, fidget toys (fidgets are so important), comfort items, a few new dollar toys, drinks, and a few healthy snacks. I also add a travel pack of Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to each backpack.
I think older children will really appreciate this so that they don’t have to ask mom or dad to pass them a wipe after their snacks. As my kids get older they are more likely to just lick their fingers than ask me to pass them a wipe, so having their own pack in their activity bag is a win-win in my book.
I am pretty sure I am going to need to buy a dozen Wet Ones® Hand Wipes travel packs for all our summer activities, especially our big family road trip! Not only will we use them throughout the 66-hour drive, but also at restaurants, amusements parks, and of course, public bathrooms. Gas stations and amusement park restrooms are the worst, and while the thought of germs doesn’t make me squirm, some of those bathrooms do. It’s just a peace of mind you can only get when using America’s #1 hand wipe*. I know I won’t feel the frustration of dodging my children’s germ ridden hands after leaving a bathroom that only had watered down soap. Why? Because these wipes kill 99.99% of germs.
