I am starting to get my kids ready for back to school by crafting this easy teacher gift: a personalized hand sanitizing station for my son’s classroom. As part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network, I am keeping my kids healthy thanks to my sponsors at PURELL and their 30-day challenge.
As much as I hate to think about it, school will be starting back up in just under a month. While it’s always hard for me to say goodbye to our fun summer days, its always nice to make a good clean start on a new school year!
To help us get off on the right foot with my son’s new teacher and give the gift of good health to the other kids in his class, I decided to make a “first day of school” gift for my son’s teacher. I plan on giving a personalized hand sanitizing station using a bottle of PURELL Hand Sanitizer and some vinyl alphabet scrapbooking stickers. I simply used the stickers to spell out her name and used the remaining stickers to make a decorative alphabet border around the edge of the bottle. I think this will make for a thoughtful and practical gift for my son’s classroom.
While getting my supplies for this project, I also grabbed an extra bottle of PURELL Hand Sanitizer for my own home, so that we can build a healthy habit during our remaining 30 days before the start of school. Because studies have shown that using PURELL Hand Sanitizer 3 times per day for 30 days, can help reduce your risk of getting sick, getting this habit started now will help us to be healthy and ready to go for the first day.
