*Gifted Products for my Back to School Safely Guide*
Going back to school at the moment is met with a bit of trepidation in this house. Grace wants to do the right thing by everyone and feels a bit conflicted – whether she goes and puts herself in a risky situation which may compromise us or whether she stays home to learn and, as a result, doesn’t make the best use of a valued education.
Whatever her decision (and, in turn, ours), there are more and more ways in which companies are making things easier with plenty of safety products being brought to help with safety and cleanliness to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Here are just a few great products you may like to consider.
Hand Washing Timer

The Kikkerland Write and Spray costs £4 from Kikkerlandeu.com. Add sanitiser, cleaning solution or perfume to this pen.
The Kikkerland Touchless Multi tool costs £5.95 from Sublime. Open doors, push keypads or elevator buttons hands free! Antimicrobial silver plated with a stylus tip to click buttons and signs.

‘Fantasy’ Ocean Free Fantasy Hand Sanitiser
Ocean Free, have just released a kids range of sanitiser products called ‘Fantasy’. Their sanitisers are surgical–grade, proven to be antibacterial, virucidal and yeasticidal.
The highly effective UK-made sanitiser kills 99.999% of many common germs. They contain 70% ethanol to ensure quick effective hand sanitisation – plus, it is ideal for children! One of the best things though, is the smell. The best way to describe it, is strawberries and unicorns! Both the kids love it.
Canal Toys, the innovative slime brand, is expanding their best-selling slime range to help children keep their hands sanitised.
This unique product – the first of its kind in the market – offers a breakthrough in child hand sanitising. With a greater focus on hygiene, children have been encouraged in school, at home and when they are out to regularly hand sanitise. However keeping them in a regular routine and ensuring they routinely sanitise their hands can be challenging for primary school children.
Now there’s a fantastic pocket-sized solution combining fun slime with a unique anti-bacterial formula that’s safe and alcohol free. Killing up to 99% of Bacteria on hands, the special formula has passed the most stringent safety standards and is giving children a brand-new slime experience. In four fun colours, the mini Anti-Bacterial Slime pots will help children keep their hands clean and bacteria free again and again.
Create Your Own Kindness by Becky Goddard-Hill
