It’s here…Back to School Season! I’m sure you are all busy with school registration, shopping for Fall clothes, and already dealing with the drama that comes with your kids BFF not being in the same class as them this year. When I started Sophie in preschool this past January, my primary concern was GERMS! I thought she’d be sick more often and subsequently, our whole family would be sick more often. The preschool assured me the kids get hand sanitizer multiple times during the two hours, but I wonder if in the convenience of sanitizer to zap those germs, are we forgetting to teach our kids proper handwashing? Even as busy moms, are we washing our hands for the length of time it takes to sing Happy Birthday?
Enter in – The Hygiene Heroes! Soap Soundz has created a fun tool for us to teach our kids proper handwashing. On Friday, we received a package of samples from Soap Soundz. I knew what it was, so I excitedly told Sophie a package had arrived for her. Her face was priceless as she opened up to discover the Hygiene Heroes. These soap bottles all have a character on them: Princess Sanipure, Captain Cleanhands, and Lord Viral. The character says a few things and then a tune plays. It’s like a hero/villain cartoon jingle at your sink. I explained to Sophie that she needs to scrub her hands for as long as the song plays, and then she can rinse. After she washed her hands, she continued to pretend to be in the cartoon, fighting against the evil Lord Viral. She was beyond thrilled to assign the characters different bathrooms and to practice washing her hands. Her cousins came over soon after and were thrilled to check them out and also excited to practice handwashing. You can buy Soap Soundz at their website or on Amazon.
