Boils & Ghouls Halloween Hand Soap

Encourage hand washing! When it is time for boils and ghouls to wash their germy little hands, why not make it fun by decorating their hand soap bottles for the season! We all know how important it is to wash our hands several times throughout the day, especially this time of year, and sometimes children {and some adults}, need a little encouragement to get the job done. Don't be surprised if you find your boils and ghouls washing their hands alot more often once you place a decorative soap bottle on the sink! 

We love the way these soap bottles turned out!
If you recall our Decorative Soap Bottle post several months back,
 it would only seem natural that we would follow that up with another one for the Halloween season!
Howerver,our motivation and inspiration came from Cheryl of That's What Che Said.
Cheryl made some really cute Halloween hand soap bottles. Stop by and check them out.

We found hand soap at Target in the price range of .89cents to $1.00
We also found in Targets dollar area some halloween stickers.
We had the trim and were not sure if we would actually use it.

We removed the labels under hot water and cleaned them up with Goo Gone.

Now how did a spider get into out soap bottle?!
   Children will really love to wash their hands with a spider in the soap!
                            We put some skull heads in the green bottle which are a little hard to see.

These are not only great to have by the sink at home, but they would also make
a "sweet" no sugary treat/gift for teachers or used as party favors.
Plus....when the soap is all gone, these can be easily refilled and used again!

Be inspired to encourage more hand washing from your boils and ghouls
to keep those germs at bay!
Get a few bottles of soap and have the children help decorate them this Halloween!
                                                           Remember, keep it Homespun!

                                               He who sows wickedness reaps trouble,
                                              and the rod of his fury will be destroyed.
                                              proverbs 22:8
Homespun With Love
