Disclosure: We receive free samples to share with others in our community as a part of the Saline Ambassadors program through Boogie Wipes. All opinions are our own.
As you may know, Cape Cod Mommies is lucky to be a part of the Saline Ambassador program for Boogie Wipes. We have been active Ambassadors for over a year and a half (since 2012!) and we have loved the opportunity to be able to try new products and share them around our community! Maybe you have come across the samples we have share at parties, schools, daycares, playgrounds, banks, libraries, gyms (puffs fresh face products) or doctor's offices!
Our most recent box included a wide range of samples from Boogie Wipes, Puffs Fresh Faces, and Kandoo products! They are all terrific and fun for all ages.
We are also part of an amazing group of other moms and bloggers who help us imagine new ways to share products in our community. Our team is #LetsBoogie and they are an amazing group of women! This quarter we have teamed up with a Boogie Giveaway since it is the season for lots of boogs!
The best part of this program is that the product was invented by another Mom just like us! Julie Pickens, the CEO, saw a need for a more child friendly product and ran with her idea! Honestly wish this product had been around when we were kids because it probably would have saved us many raw red noses! Learn more about Julie below in an exclusive interview!
Our job as ambassadors is to share samples and spread the word about these products. We use Boogie Wipes and the Puffs Fresh Face wipes almost every single day! We even have some unusual uses for them as well. Don't you just love products that have multi uses?!?!?!?! Not only do we use them on our faces, but there have been times when we have used them for other things such as: emergency wipes after a major explosion; cleaning the bottom of gunky toothbrushes; wiping down the counter after a small spill; ; cleaning the dusty dashboard or wiping down the steering wheel; removing makeup; even re wiping down a table at restaurants before we eat!
Now it's your turn to have a chance to try out Boogie Wipes! Saline Ambassador team #LetsBoogie are hosting a giveaway. One very lucky winner will receive two 30 Count packs of Boogie Wipes to try out! This giveaway will end on February 15, 2014 and Boogie Wipes will be shipping the prize directly!
Please follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter form below and Good Luck!! After you are done we have also enclosed a coupon for you to save $1.50 on the new Boogie Mist product. which we can say has definitely been helping with nasal congestion in our homes this season! Plus you could be one of the lucky winners chosen every 3 days to win a $50 gift card!
Good luck and if you see our samples around please make sure to take the survey as it helps us continue to share the Boogie Love in our community! Also if you have any great businesses for us to share some free products with let us know because we love sharing! Thanks!

It is the fateful “Achoo!” that allows for the preschool saying, “If you sneeze, cover please!” Whether it is Spring time allergies or the dreadful flu season, the preschool children at The Children’s Workshop in South Dennis are very prepared to handle an onset of germs.
We began in early October teaching about how germs can spread from one child to another. During circle time, we sat in a large circle. I had sprinkled a large amount of glitter on a pan and placed my hands in it. When I removed my hands, they were completely covered with, what we call, the preschool plague. I proceeded to tell my class that glitter, just like germs, can be passed from one friend to another until everyone has the germs on their hands. I then shook hands with the child to the right of me and he shook hands with the child next to him. This cycle continued until all the way around our circle until the child on the left of me had glitter on her hands too. The children all looked at their hands as I continued talking, “Now we all have the germs on our hands! The only way to get rid of these germs is to
wash our hands with soap and water, and then dry our hands with a paper towel.” The children all took turns washings and drying their hands. When everyone had returned to the circle, we compared our hands. The over whelming verdict was that the germs were all gone!
Ever since performing this experiment, we continue to wash our hands frequently to rid ourselves of the germs that constantly linger in a preschool classroom. We wash our hands before and after we eat, after blowing or wiping our noses, after using the bathroom, and after we come in from outside. The children have become adept at catching a friend when he or she needs to go wash their hands. I often catch my students repeating the phrase, “We are Safe! We Wash Our Hands!”
This has helped my students to become more aware of their bodies, what it means to be sick, and what it may take to help a friend or family member feel better. I frequently see my students run over and give a hug or a pat on the back if they notice a friend is not feeling well. By doing this, they are demonstrating a growing empathy that we love to encourage here at The Children’s Workshop.

We’ve been very busy crafting and creating felt hearts with love messages for our friends and family this week but a little cold has recently descended on the household so my little one has been staying very close to her mama for comfort. Normally, we have a regular routine we go through at the first onset of a cold or illness so by now we have this down pat. I am usually not nervous about fevers below 105 degrees if my child is active and otherwise happy and playing. My instincts will usually tell me if she is in need of serious help or just a little rest and relaxation to combat whatever she is fighting. The first thing we do is take a little extra vitamin c or multivitamin and plenty of fluids like lots of water and homemade soup with extra garlic. A little warm tea with raw honey and lemon helps with sore throats or licorice tea for coughs. The humidifier gets turned on at night and if it’s me who is ill, I’ll make a bowl of steaming hot water with a few drops of eucalyptus oil to inhale for decongestion. Sleep is vital to recovery but not always easy when my toddler is out of sorts so I will usually allow plenty of relaxation and quiet or otherwise boring time for her during the day to just take it easy. For stuffy noses, I use a natural eucalyptus rub on the chest or a little saline solution for the nose, if necessary. Fevers are good for building immunity but if the fever gets uncomfortably high I will have a
washcloth with tepid water ready to cool down her forehead or give her some homemade frozen ice pops which she loves. Beyond that, we just wait. Kids are quite resilient and often I am amazed at how quickly my little one can bounce back to her former self again. Of course, I really don’t mind the extra cuddling and comforting my toddler needs when she is not feeling well. So for Valentine’s Day I can’t think of a better to way to be reminded of how much I am needed and loved while I am holding her close.
What are some natural remedies you use at home for colds or flu?
