A good rule of thumb, which many children already knew, is to sing the ABC song while lathering up with plenty of soap and warm water. But what if there isn't soap and water available? Hand sanitizer was mentioned as the next best thing.
We got into work groups and made three batches of our own natural hand sanitizer! Children worked together cooperatively to make sure that recipe was followed precisely, each child getting turns measuring, counting drops, and mixing. We all tried the final products, and it was lovely! A nice, non-drying and soothing hand sanitizer.
Want the recipe? Here it is:
8 drops lavender oil
16 drops tea tree oil
1/2 teaspoon vitamin e oil
3 tablespoons aloe vera
2 tablespoons witch hazel
