Having a play date is a must when you have little kids. It’s the perfect time to bring together moms & kids to have fun and enjoy some time together. Because kids are so different, setting up a play date can be daunting. However, following a few tips can make this a piece of cake as well as a fun event. Recently, I put together a fun play date using one of my favorite products, WaterWipes.
WaterWipes is a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. Both durable and effective without containing any of the harmful chemicals that may be found in other baby wipes, WaterWipes proves a safer, natural option for your little one. So when you’re having a fun get together having a product that is pure like water wipes is essential in it’s success. So check out a few tips I follow in putting together a fun play date for all.
Tip 1: Pick a variety of food for all
One thing I love about play dates is the food, most important the varieties. Since I like to do play dates in the morning I include various foods like bagels,donuts,fruits and veggies. I also include finger foods for little eaters, water,juice and coffee. I keep it simple and I keep it fun. Most important I try to keep it as clean as possible. I always put the food in one section of the room so parents and kids can enjoy away from the activities.
Tip 2: Set up a few arts & crafts sections
I always set up a couple of arts and craft sections to allow kids to explore various textures and crafts. I will do play dough and building on one station and add a few colors and glue.
In other sections adding some fun colors and a big piece of paper will do!
The important thing is that it’s ok to get messy so I keep waterwipes on hand to make sure everyone is clean when the fun is over.
Tip 3: If the weather is nice, set up an outdoor fun area.
Kids love to run and have a good time, adding some fun out door toys like water tables,bubbles,trucks and chalk will make the fun even better.
It’s amazing the creativity that will happen when you let them explore the fun around them.
Tip 4: Have fun!
Both Kids and moms can have a great time during a play date, so have fun and let loose! This is your time to enjoy a break from the chaos and enjoy the fun!
Tip 5: Make Clean up A breeze with Water Wipes!
Because kids will get messy during the fun I keep WaterWipes on hand at each station for oops moments. Because Waterwipes are so gentle and pure, even the kids with the most sensitive skin will have no problem using them!
I was supplied with some fun samples of WaterWipes for our fun and all the mom’s loved taking these fun little packs to use with them while on the go!

I love Water Wipes!! I have a 7, 3, and 2 year old so I have tried my share of wipes. Basically every brand is filled with chemicals and unknown ingredients. I definitely don’t like using them on my sweet babies bodies! I love that I can buy these wipes with just 2 ingredients and feel great about using them on my kids! 🙂 Awesome product!
I like how you have set up different activities for the play date and like the idea of chemical free water wipes for clean up.

These are great! We do cloth wipes at home with just water and a couple drops of lavender essential oil in a spray bottle. These are the perfect on-the-go equivalent!

Love these ideas and I am definitely going to have to try the water wipes out for my super sensitive boys! Thanks for the tips!

I love the idea of disposable water wipes. I used cloth wipes with my daughter a lot because her bum was so sensitive. I have to admit disposables can be much more convenient.

I’m going to try these for washing on the go!!
These look really convenient for in the diaper bag!
I just got a coupon for these at Target! I would love to try them!
I like the travel packs of these wipes – they would be really helpful. I’m wondering, what is Irish water? Just water from Ireland?
They are so gentle and I love that they have no fragrance! These are definitely a must!

Love the ingredients! We take grapefruit seed extract when battling a cold so I know it’s effective against germs.
