Kick off to Kindergarten: Wet Ones Review & Giveaway

With school starting, I can only imagine the number of germs my little one will be coming into contact with. Unfortunately, he's the type of kid who gets sick very easily. Every fall and winter, we battle one cold after another. And it's miserable. (Some days I consider putting him in a bubble to keep him from getting sick!)

Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand and Face Wipes are perfect to have on hand to kill germs. They are hypoallergenic, contain Aloe, and kill 99.99% of germs. They come in two scents, Citrus and Fresh Scent. And they are so easy for kids to use when water isn't available.
My son finds it easier to wipe his hands with Wet Ones than to run to wash them sometimes, and often times it's much quicker. I'm sure as school starts, they will find a permanent spot on my counter so that he can clean his hands quickly before having an afternoon snack.

Would you like to try Wet Ones?
I have two canisters to giveaway to two lucky readers.

Everyone in my family carries little containers of wipes everywhere - they come in so handy! That and mini stain removers.

As for getting ready for back to school - I remember being excited to shop for supplies every year, but for some reason, the highlight was always getting new shoes. I have no idea why (I barely even liked shoe shopping!), but Fall meant new shoes, and picking them out and then wearing them for the first time on the first day just epitomized back to school. :-)

We aren't to the school phase yet, as my son is only eight months old. We do try to buy some supplies and donate them to a local charity called "Tools for Schools" though.

I look forward to school shopping, but I want my baby to be my baby forever, haha.

We prep for the new school year by cleaning out the closets of clothes that don't fit to make room for the new ones.

We are just starting preschool with Chandler this year and we prepared by buying him a backpack and some school supplies!

(I know what you mean about putting them in a bubble so they don't get sick. I'd love to do that with my 19 month old, he's always sick.)

My son will be going to a mother's day out this year and he always gets sick when around other little kids so I'd love these. We use them daily as it is.

Well, I've not had to do back to school yet! But, this year my daughter will be going to preschool. We are going to open house on Thurs and shopping for clothes and supplies over the weekend. We're so excited!

Hand santizer is the way to go to trying to keep those pesky germs away.

Tammy said...

well we homeschool and do it year round, so we don't really "get ready" for the school year. However, fall is always a great time to restock on the supplies, get new clothes for winter and of course do the dental checkups and such!

Wet Wipes are a great thing we always have a canister in the car!

aside from getting the needed school supplies and clothing, I pack my daughter and son's backpacks with hand sanitizer, kleenex, cough drops and other items they might need to get through their day---kind of like a little survival kit...

We always start our school year off by sending in a box of tissues with each of our kids for them to give to the teacher. I know from experience how many tissues are used just throughout a week!!
We also start off by buying new backpacks and shoes and not worry so much about clothes since they are still wearing shorts since the weather is still warm. Also armed in their new backpacks and mini bottles of hand sanitizer and pocket sized packages of tissues for using on the playground or on the bus.
Thanks for the chance!!

We always get ready for back to school by making a fun event of going shopping for clothes and all the school supplies that my kids would need for the year. I really do try to make the shopping event fun since I have two boys going to school so they don't get bored.

Thanks for a great giveaway :)
