It’s Back To School time again, are you ready? I know I’m not!

Alie school

I can’t believe it’s already time to send my Alice back to school!! When did she get so big and where did our summer go?  My sweet baby girl is in 1st grade now!  Wow, the time really does fly by!  I’m incredibly blessed to be a preschool teacher at the very same Christian private school my baby girl attends. I can peak in on her from time to time.  I can only image how hard it is for all the parents out there that have to wait till the end of the school or work day to see their kids again.

I know we sometimes count down the days till school is back in session and we can have a moment of piece and quiet in the house! Then suddenly the first day of school is tomorrow and you’re not ready for them to go!!

THEN….there are the supplies, clothes, shoes, food for lunches! I have everything ready for Alice and I’ve got to let you know about the yummy Fruit Burst® Squeezers from Del Monte® I found while shopping at Walmart recently. Alice LOVES them and I love that she’s getting a serving and a half of fruits and veggies without knowing she’s eating her veggies!! BRILLIANT!! I’ve always bought her the Del Monte ® fruit cups and she loves those as well.

Easy Lunch Ideas for Kids

I have a super easy and super fun lunch idea that pairs great with the Del Monte® Fruit Burst® Squeezers and the Del Monte® Fruit Cups……Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Sushi!

Lunch Idea Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Sushi

First, cut off the crust. Then cut into 4 long strips. Spread jelly first and then peanut butter. After you’re done roll of the pieces and….VOILA you have cute yummy Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Sushi!!! The kids love it and love to show it off at school. It’s fun and easy enough the kids can make it themselves!

Messy Summer Fun with Wet-Nap!

Kid Made BBQ Sauce

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Is it just me or has this winter seemed like the longest one yet?  I live in the south where it’s normally unbearably warm. As crazy as it sounds for a born and raised Texan, I cannot wait for the heat!!! Summer means picnics at the park, outdoor BBQ’s, beach days, hiking and then some.  Alice loves to play outside. She loves to create and build and always has dirt under her nails. I’m a proud mommy of a messy girl that loves to get dirty. To me, it means she’s using her imagination, expanding her brain, getting some sun and exercising her body.

At the park, beach or the backyard, getting her clean before she eats is easy with Wet-Nap wipes! Alice and I thought of a cute and fun gift idea for those family picnics at the park or backyard BBQ parties we are sure to be invited to this summer.

bbq picnic clothespin wreath

We made a fun Clothespin Wreath that will hold the individually wrapped Wet-Nap Antibacterial Hand Wipes. You can give this as a gift or put up at your own party or picnic. It’s a perfect and convenient way to ensure your guests can keep there hands clean!

clothes pin wreath tutorial

Creating the Clothespin Wreath is really easy. First you’ll need either a wire circle or cut out a circle from a sturdy piece of cardboard.  To create the pretty clothespins, I cut strips of paper and glued them onto the clothespins.  Then I positioned them and hot glued them into place. You can position them in any fashion.Once finished, I attached a strip of burlap and a box to use as a hanger. Added my new Wet-Nap Hand Wipes and hung up our new messy summer fun decor piece!

Backyard BBQ Clothespin Wreath

After Alice and I made our Clothespin Wreath we decided we need to get messy! Ya know, so we could try out our new wreath.

Alice LOVES to cook and so I came up with an easy homemade BBQ sauce recipe that kids can make and enjoy!

Easy delicious barbecue sauce that kids can make and enjoy!
Author:
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: BBQ
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Pickapeppa Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Mix ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended. (If you don't have Pickapeppa Sauce you can use any steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce.)Then transfer sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium to low heat. Once it simmers remove from heat and let it cool a bit before using.

We decided to test Alice’s new homemade BBQ sauce!! Alice wanted BBQ’d Hot Dogs and so that is what we had.

Messy BBQ Summer Fun

I must say, her new sauce was DELICIOUS!! We loved our BBQ’d Hot Dogs!! Cleaning up before and after eating during our backyard BBQ was easy with our new Wet-Nap Antibacterial Hand Wipes and if felt good knowing my families hands were nearly germ free!

I found the Wet-Nap Hand Wipes at Walmart for under $2, for either the canister or box of individual packets. They are a MUST for any outdoor summer fun. Throw some in your beach bag or take them along in your hiking backpack. They are a great way to keep your kids hands clean and your own, too. Click this LINK for fifty five cents ($.55) off of any Wet-Nap product!!

Now, go get ready for some MESSY SUMMER FUN!!
