Timing is everything and this is the perfect post for me to be writing today. About six hours ago, I came out of one wicked 24-hour flu. It started with my husband, then spread to me. At first I thought our whole family had it, but it turns out that our girls were just picking up on our complete exhaustion and they were really okay.
Our oldest is learning a lot about germs both in her school and at home. Lysol launched the Lysol Germ Detectives Program and our daughter’s school is one of over 1200 schools across Canada that is participating.
My daughter was sent home with a student activity book, a magnetic picture frame and a Germ Detective badge. The book is filled with fun activities such as fill in the blank, multiple choice questions, dot-to-dot activities and more. It is a great addition to any conversations you may be having with your kids at home about the spread of germs and what they are.
Our daughter’s school has also been teaching them how to properly wash their hands and how to stop the spread of germs by ‘coughing like a vampire’, or coughing in to the inside of your elbow. She is learning all of this at home as well, but there is something about also learning it at school that helps to drive the importance of it home, literally.
