Why does it seem like the minute school starts, so do the sniffles? I guess I am learning that is just the nature of the beast. Anytime you have that many children in one area, you are going to have germs.
So what is one of the best things we can teach our children? Frequent hand washing!
While my children love to play in water, they don’t do such a great job with using soap. They also are not great with remembering the 20 second rule to hand washing. Therefore, I am always trying to find new ways to make it more fun for them. Maybe you remember in my last post, I said my children learn best when things are fun.
SoapTime is a product designed to teach children exactly the type of good habits I am talking about. SoapTime was created for children ages 2-7 in mind.
The SoapTime products have a SmartBase that was created to work with the themed SoapTime Bottles. The SmartBase is activated each time your child uses the pump to dispense the soap. It engages your child for the 20 seconds they should be washing their hands by playing music , talking, lighting up and singing songs with an educational theme.
How unique and fun is that? Each SoapTime Bottle has a different theme: ABC (language), Earth (nature), and Elephant (wild kingdom). So not only will your child learn proper hand washing skills, they will learn fun facts as well.
If I am being completely honest, there were times the kids had trouble understanding some of what was said. It was usually only when the woman who spoke with an accent talked. Otherwise, the SoapTime Products are a great idea for helping younger children enjoy learning healthy skills.
SoapTime is currently available at select Bed, Bath and Beyond retailers. You can visit the SoapTime website to check for your local area retailer.
I just hope the moms in my sons class go buy their kiddos the SoapTime Products. It sure would be nice to make it through the winter without any colds. Yeah, RIGHT!
