It is back to school time and that means all the shopping preparations need to be made. My oldest is starting kindergarten and I literally could not be more excited for her. The idea of all that fun learning and activities with new friends makes me wish I was going to school every day with her. The one thing I am trying to remind her to do is to wash her hands because the last thing I want her sharing with her new friends is a cold and then bringing it home to share with the family. GIANTmicrobes has adorable products that make it fun to remember to wash your hands.
GIANTmicrobes makes impossibly cute and adorable plushes that are giant versions of the organisms that they are portraying. From brain cells and book worms to Ebola and Typhoid Fever this website has them all. These are the only germs that are completely acceptable to share with friends and family! The common cold or Rhinovirus is shared between billions of people each year and this plush may be cute but it is a great prop to teach children more about this germ.
Of course simply washing your hands is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. So a common cold soap dispenser is an easy and fun way that reminds children every time they wash their hands that this is one of the many germs they are trying to avoid. It is cute and even I want to use it to wash my hands. Don’t forget to clean up with their moist wipes too. These would make a great start to the school year teacher gift so that she can keep it in the classroom for everyone to enjoy.
No better time than now to remind those kiddos about washing their hands when they are at school. I like to think my child would do it on her own but I am sure the teacher will be doing the prompting to students. Share a cute plush germ with your kids and teach them a thing or two about spreading germs.
