“I have partnered with Wet Ones® Hand Wipes on this post to encourage you to embrace the messy moments in life.”
Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. Nothing is more exciting or fun than picking out costumes(we always do family ones), setting up decorations, and carving pumpkins. Every year though I get too excited and do things way earlier than I should for this Arizona weather. I love seeing my carved pumpkins by the front door when I get home however, our weather is 80-90’s in October so when you get all excited and carve your pumpkin more than 3-4 days before Halloween, it doesn’t go so well.
This year I decided to do all my inside decorating first, outside second, and finally to carve pumpkins last. Since I made a valid effort to wait to carve pumpkins, they should survive the next few days until Halloween before rotting and attracting 10 million flies.
This year since we are going to be the Mickey Mouse gang so I made sure we did at least one pumpkin as Mickey and the rest as our normal stencils. We picked up our pumpkins at Mother Nature’s Farm here in Gilbert and was surprised at how nice they were inside. Yes, I’m sure that sounds weird but the pulp was so easy to pull out!
Sometimes I’m that mom who hates messes but when it comes to other things like carving pumpkins, I like to embrace family memories by letting my little ones be more hands on. With carving pumpkins come a house full of messy moments so I had to make sure I had a package or two of Wet Ones on my side – because with Wet Ones® hand wipes you’re always covered.
Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are the convenient 2-in-1 way to wipe out dirt and messes and kill 99.99% of germs when soap and water aren’t readily available. I know what you’re thinking, that has to be harsh on your skin but they actually contain aloe and lanolin which makes them incredibly gentle on your skin. Since they are a wipe, you can actually wipe away messes and clean little hands better than using hand sanitizer alone.
Since this was Max’s first pumpkin carving he could officially help with, there were messy toddler hands everywhere! He ended up covered in pumpkin goo from head to toe and couldn’t have been more happy about it. I love seeing the sweet innocence in toddlers learning and exploring different textures. They soak up knowledge like a sponge and its so important to allow them to enjoy these messy moments.
After 2 hours or so we finally finished our pumpkin master pieces and I headed straight for the Wet Ones to clean up Hurricane Max. The wipes were so easy to use and cleaned up all the pumpkin goo in minutes without calling for an immediate bath. Max was able to go on his way playing while mommy used a couple more wipes to clean up the table and myself.
Growing up with 5 other siblings my mom carried a container of Wet Ones in the mini van to keep us clean because we were always getting messy. Though it wasn’t on purpose, I’m happy to keep the tradition alive with my own little ones. Though you don’t have to choose just a container, you can purchase them in one of the three convenient sizes available at mass drug and grocery stores.
