Do your kids get messy? With lots of crafting going on whenever we’re together, the little ones in my life certainly do! The Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System is so “handy” (ha! I’m so punny!) for making it easy and fun for your kids to keep those hands clean and reduce the spread of germs.
Now you can get crafty and clean up with your kids in the Lysol Decorate Your Hand Soap Contest! You’ll have the chance to win a mini tablet – they’re giving one away each day for 21 days starting March 19th!
So what do you need to do to enter? Well, you need to get out those craft materials and get your kids involved in decorating your Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Systems. Not only is this fun for the family BUT with a dispenser that they decorated themselves, they are far more likely to use it and well, that’s really the main goal, isn’t it?
We got out the sheets of craft foam to use as our foundation. You can glue right to the Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System if you want but we decided to make a variety of covers for ours so that they can be switched out seasonally or whenever we want! Plus, it allowed us to use pretty much any art materials we wanted without worry of them getting soiled and us having no way to clean them.
We grabbed items such as pompoms, craft foam shapes, buttons, chenille stems (pipe cleaners), glitter glue (that was a HUGE hit), and rhinestones for some bling. All of the craft items were from our local dollar store and I just keep them on hand in a big craft bin to be pulled out whenever we want to have some creative fun! One really important thing to remember is not to cover up the sensor or your soap system won’t work properly. In some cases, we just cut out an opening, but in this one above left, we worked it into the design as a mouth and added a craft foam tongue sticking out as a cheeky little touch!
:Later, I found some crocheted doilies in all kinds of bright colours in the $1.50 impulse bins at Michaels. There were on sale for 50 cents each so I snatched up several of them! This would be a great option for an older child or teen. Run some ribbon through the outside edge of the doily to gather it so it will hug the soap system. For extra detail, you can glue buttons to the centers of some inexpensive fake flowers and poke those through the holes of the doily. Leave them as is or make them more durable and permanent with some glue or by using a needle and thread on the back of the doily to secure them.
What great decorating ideas can your kids come up with? Get out the craft supplies and PLAY! Then to enter their creations into the draw, head on over to Lysol Canada’s Facebook page and click on the link for the Dispenser Decoration Contest. All you need to do is upload a picture showing how you and/or your kids have decorated your hand soap dispenser for your chance to win!

Allow 48 hours for your picture to be uploaded and displayed in the online gallery and then tell all your family and friends to head on over and vote for your entry! It’s super easy to comment on, share, or like the contest on Facebook so that all your followers will know that you’re taking part. Head here to see full contest rules and details.
