I have been a fan of Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap for a long time. In fact, as soon as this product came onto the market, I hit the store immediately to buy one for our guest bathroom. My two boys are soooooo messy, and the soap dispenser in the bathroom is always a complete disaster. Their little hands try to manipulate the bottle, usually unsuccessfully, and what’s left is a liquid mess of soap all over the counter. A hands-free dispenser was a no-brainer for me.
The kids like the “magic” aspect of the product, waving their little hands in front of the dispenser, and POOF, the soap comes out. It makes them more likely to wash their hands after using the toilet, and it minimizes the mess. For that reason, we have these no-touch hand soap dispensers in 2 bathrooms in our home.
Lysol sent us a no-touch dispenser in a stainless steel finish. The mission: get our creative juices flowing, and decorate our dispenser in whatever way we liked. After talking over designs with my two boys, we decided to make ours a CANADA themed soap dispenser.
I picked up some supplies at the dollar store: red ribbon, glue stick, a pack of cut out letter stencils, markers and glittery adhesive stars of varying sizes. When we sat down to start creating, the kids were excited. All those little hands on board!
My 4 year old was afraid that he would be left out of the fun, so when I told him he would be helping out he was grinning ear to ear. We started by gluing our stencil letters to the red ribbon, CANADA. The Canada banner was wrapped around the soap dispenser like a banner. The boys took turns affixing the glittery foam stars all around the dispenser.
My 6 year old son and I made a homemade Canada flag out of red ribbon, white paper, and a hand-drawn maple leaf by yours truly. My boy colored it in and glued the Canada flag to the bottle which contains the soap at the top of the dispenser. Flying the flag proudly!
The boys were very proud of their newly anointed Canada soap dispenser. Of course, they laid claim to it immediately, and are going to be putting it into the bathroom they use upstairs. Too cool!
