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

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.

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!

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!

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!
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: BBQ
Serves: 8
  • 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
  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.

I LOVE the Zubie Car App!!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zubie for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I honestly love the Zubie car app! It has become such a party of my day I don’t know how I got along before it. I can check my Zubie app to find out when my hubby will be home, what’s going on diagnostically with the car and much more. I’m not a parent of a teen but I can image how valuable this app would be.

Zubie is the ultimate road trip buddy! I’ve been using my Zubie key for the last  8 weeks and I love that it tracks where your car is, where it has been and how it’s been driven. Like for example, I know that my husband and I both have a Hard Brake problem!!

The Zubie app lets you know what’s going on with your car and that is really helpful. I haven’t had any issues with our car but I am always checking to see that all systems are “GO”. But, as I said before my favorite feature is the tracking. It’s incredibly valuable to know where the car is, how long it will be before someone is home, and where the car has been.

I love my Zubie and it is definitely a great gift for a love one. You will love having the Zubie Key in your car.

The cake is adorable. The ladies at Walmart did a great job icing the cupcakes.

The Hello Kitty kit from Bakery Crafts was really cute. There are several different designs to choose from. Hello Kitty is pretty popular so be sure to give your baker plenty of time to order if need be. Our Walmart was out of all but 1 of the designs. I had to go with the Hello Kitty birthday cake candle and ring kit. It was super cute.
