Giveaway: For the Love of All Things Q-Tips and Cute!

{This Giveaway is now closed.  Thanks for entering!}

We all know how much I love my family, my crafts and my house projects.  BUT!  Did you know that the standard Q-Tip is a jack of all trades and is indispensable in my house when it comes to taking care of myself and my kids as well as helping around the house and with all of our fabulous art projects?  As it turns out it can help me to look prettier as well.  This little cotton swab really has a lot going for it, don’t you agree?  Now that little Q-Tip has gotten a very Nursery and Kid-Friendly Facelift!

I will reveal some of the many ways we use Q-Tips around my house soon, but I specifically mentioned the little gems here in my post listing the things I used in my baby’s first 2 weeks so I will begin with their uses for baby and kids and announce an awesome giveaway!

Q-Tips teamed up with Wendy Bellissimo for the launch of their new adorably designed nursery Q-Tips package.  These packages are now available at your local Target or Walmart stores.  I think we can agree that these are MUCH cuter than your standard blue Q-Tip box, especially since you will want to keep the Q-Tips near your diaper area and easy to reach while you are taking care of your little one!

I recieved a Perfect Nursery Product Pack from Q-Tips to review and I have one to giveaway! It includes both Q-Tips designs as well as a super cute little elephant bank!  I do not have nurseries for my kids as newborns since they sleep in my room, so my adorable little package is on the bookshelf I use in my room for my baby essentials nest to our co-sleeper.  It is especially nice to have something cute since it is a corner of my bedroom!


Q-Tips Space Saving Packs with Baby Elephant Bank

So how do I use them?  Q-Tips are Great for Our Littlest Ones,   I use them for…

1.  Cleaning the umbilical cord with alcohol before the area has completely healed.

2.  With diaper changes I use warm water and a Q-Tip to clean all those really small private areas that get so much moisture and can cause rashes in even the tiniest babies.  A Q-Tip dipped in warm water can get to every little area and keep baby clean and dry.

3.  While you should never use a Q-Tip in the ear canal I do use it to clean the outside and behind the ears as well as in between tiny fingers and toes.  I have even used one dipped in warm water to clean the folds of a very chubby neck on my little boy!

4.  With a circumcised boy, you can use a Q-Tip to apply to petroleum jelly to the penis during a diaper change.  It is a lot better than using your hands and I always felt like it was cleaner.

And for the slightly older crowd – toddlers and up…

4.  Q-Tips and warm water can make cleaning a crusty boogered nose a breeze!

5.  My 3 year old loves to use them to put on make-up when we play.  She doesn’t destroy my brushes and I can throw them out!  They are also great to have for face painting at birthday parties!

6.  Q-Tips are perfect paintbrushes for tiny hands.  Have one for each color and toss when you are done! I use them for my craft projects too – perfect for tiny hand and for tiny spaces!

7.  Q-Tips are arts and crafts masters – from applying glue to building your own Q-Tip cabin these babies should be part of your craft caddy.

Are you convinced you need some of these around?  I will be following up with a huge list of general uses for Q-Tips but this can get you started!

Now, don’t you want to win a set of the cute Q-Tips and that precious little elephant bank?  My one and 3 year old both want the bank and the Q-Tips to go in their rooms so I know these animals are a hit with the little ones.
