Having a newborn recently join us at home I am particular about keeping him at home for the first couple weeks of his life to avoid exposure to some of the many germs a person comes across on a daily basis. I admit that I am not as particular with my fifth child as I was with my first but with kids in school and company coming to see the new baby, I am very mindful of hand washing. Lysol has always been a brand I can count on to keep my family protected; when I was offered the chance to have my kids artistic talent to shine with the Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Dispenser, I jumped at the opportunity to share and to tell my readers about this fun contest Lysol is running.
Spending 9 months waiting and hoping for a healthy baby to join us, the last thing any new parent wants is to have their newborn come down with a nasty bug that could have been prevented. Hand washing is an obvious way to protect loved ones from germs but the technique is the most important. One of the biggest ways to prevent cross contamination is to avoid touching the dispenser, a breeding ground for bacteria, especially for little hands which would be lucky to be washed at all. The Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Dispenser automatically sensors and dispenses hand soap without having to touch the dispenser at all, decreasing the chance of contamination of bacteria and making it fun for little ones to want to wash their hands.
This winter has been a long and grueling one here on the Saskatchewan prairies leaving all of us yearning for signs of spring. When I received the Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Dispenser the kids were eager to decorate their craft project canvas in a spring inspired theme. Being a family of nature lovers, it was suiting that Squeakers helped Baby Girl place designs of flowers and ladybugs on the dispenser. Later she decided she wanted the dispenser to be hidden in a wall of flowers; imagining that they could talk to her, she had me help shape flowers out of pipe cleaners and glued googly eyes on each one so they could look back at her while washing her hands. I love watching the kids imaginations unfold but this project especially brought a smile to my face when I realized this simple spring inspiration was what we were all yearning for after 6 months of snow and cold.
It’s not always easy to get my kids to wash their hands without being told or supervised but making things fun encourages them to participate. Help your kids get excited about washing their hands by getting a little crafty and have a chance to win a mini tablet. Lysol is hosting a contest on their Facebook page; decorate a Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Dispenser and submit your photo HERE for a chance to win a mini tablet daily!
