Do you ever get tired of all the sweets and goodies around the holidays? I know I do! Even though I am guilty of sharing several goodies and treats here for the holidays, we try to be really careful with how much junk my kids eat. It can be difficult since it is everywhere now-a-days. Now, I am not saying my kids don’t eat junk food, because they do…they are kids! But we are trying to teach them moderation and the benefits of eating healthy.
So I challenged myself to come up with a Halloween Gift Idea that was non-candy or sugar related. I came up with a really easy gift that would be perfect for a teacher or a child old enough to use Hand Sanitizer safely. I also LOVE that this is perfect for the beginning of the Cold/Flu Season.
These are so simple to make. I have two different sizes that should fit most of the regular sized bottles of Hand Sanitizer and the mini Hand Sanitizers.
To make the Germ Slayer Hand Sanitizers, simply follow these steps.
Step 1: Remove the labels from your Hand Sanitizer Bottles. You may need to use some Goo Gone Label remover or soak them in hot, soapy water to get the sticky residue off.
Step 2: Print out the labels on regular white cardstock. Use a Laser Printer for best results and so that the color ink will not run when it gets wet. You can download them here:
*If you are not a fan of The Idea Room on Facebook, you will need to click like first and become a fan. After you become a fan you will need to click on “Get your free gift” in the upper right hand corner of the Idea Room FB page and then click on “Previous Downloads”.
Step 3: Cut out the label and then glue them onto the bottle(s). I simply use a glue stick and it works great.
These would be fun to give out as a party favor or give to your little “ghouls” and “goblins” to keep the germs away this Holiday Season!
If you worry about giving this out to small children, be sure to give it to those who are old enough or use a bottle of hand soap instead of hand sanitizer.
What do you think? Do you prefer non-candy gift ideas for Halloween and Christmas?
