Last year, we enrolled our son in school for the first time. It may have only been 3-School (a preschool program for three year olds), but it felt like a huge milestone for us because the program is part of the school system our son will attend through eighth grade. As any parent will tell you, when kids start school, they bring back packs laden with papers, glue sticks, markers and other supplies for school. As any teacher will tell you, they also bring germs with them! Every day when our son arrived at school last year, his teacher would greet him with a warm smile and a huge bottle of hand sanitizer. In fact, the CDC lists hand sanitizer as one of the tools that can be used to combat the spread of germs in school .
As we get ready to send our son, who’s now four, to preschool this Fall, I thought it would be fun to create a cute printable that we could wrap around a large hand sanitizer bottle to give to his teacher on the first day. Hopefully it helps to keep the kids a little healthier this year, while also gently reminding them not to waste any. If you want to use the Hand Sanitizer Printable for your child’s school, it’s available as a FREE digital download – just look for the sign-up form later in this blog post to get yours!

2. Print and cut.
Print the card in color on white card stock, then trim along the top and bottom edges with scissors.
3. Trim the Con-Tact paper.
To make the Hand Sanitizer Printable more durable, we chose to cover it with Con-Tact paper. The Con-Tact paper also worked great for adhering the printable to the hand sanitizer bottle. Alternately, you could just use a piece of tape to attach the printable and give the teacher extra copies to replace the printable after it wears out.
Using the Hand Sanitizer Printable as template, cut the Con-Tact Paper to the correct size leaving 1/4 to 1/2″ of overlap on the short edges. You’ll use those edges to adhere the Hand Sanitizer Printable to the bottle.
4. Apply the Con-Tact paper to the Hand Sanitizer Printable.
Remove the backing off the Con-Tact paper. Carefully lay the Hand Sanitizer Printable face down on the sticky side of the Con-Tact paper and use your hands to smooth out any air bubbles. Closely trim the top and bottom edges of the Con-Tact paper with scissors.
5. Wrap the Hand Sanitizer Printable around the bottle.
Place the hand sanitizer bottle in the center of the printable and wrap one side around the bottle.
Then wrap the other side, making sure that the large red horizontal lines match up with one another. Press your fingers along the seam to make sure the Con-Tact paper seals the Hand Sanitizer Printable closed.
6. You’re ready for clean germ-free hands!
Here’s to a happy and healthy new school year! If you love this idea, please share it with your friends or pin it for later:
