The other day I shared a fun Repurposed Baby Wipe Container Pencil Box and Washi Tape Notebooks and Pencils crafts in honor of an upcoming Fiskars Back to School Twitter chat next week. Today, I want to share these colorful Back to School Craft Hand Sanitizers. One day, when Mia came home from school she said. “Mom, everybody has hand sanitizer at school but me.” Baffled and curious, the next day at school I nonchalantly looked down to find that her best friends, Lilly and Becca, both had hand sanitizer attached to their lunch boxes. What a great idea!

So I headed to the 99 Cent store and found these plain boring hand sanitizers. They definitely needed a little upcycle.

The Fiskars Kid Scissors are ideal for this craft. They are safe and ergonomically shaped for their little hands. They make it easy for kids to cut small pieces like the ones for this craft.

Have the kids measure the hand sanitizer to figure out the size of the rectangle they need to cut out of paper scraps.  Punch out hearts with a Fiskars medium That’s Amore squeeze punch.

Use a foam paint brush and Mod Podge to glue the paper onto the hand sanitizer. Brush one coat on top.
