Good, Clean Summer Fun: Backyard Hand Washing Station

My kids love playing outside in the dirt. The boys have been known to dig holes for no reason. April digs through the compost pile to find roly-polies. I love the fact that my kids enjoy spending time outside interacting with nature. But I do not want that nature coming into the house. A few years ago I set up a hand-washing station in our front yard. They kids love the ease of being able to wash their hands outside without having to come in the house. I love the ability to say, "Don't come in until your hands are clean."

If you'd rather watch a video tutorial, here you go. Otherwise, keep scrolling. (Sorry for the WeVideo logo--I'm still trying out different free video editors for the video production class I will be teaching next school year.)

Outdoor hand-washing stations are easy, inexpensive, and quick to set up. All you need is a pair of old tights, bar soap, and scissors.

1.  Cut the legs off of the tights.

2.  Insert bar soap into opening. Bonus: this is a great way to use up soap scraps.

3.  Push soap to foot of tight leg.

4.  Tie around outside faucet. I have one in the front yard and one in the backyard.

5.  Let the hand washing commence!
