4 Fun Simple, Surefire Ways to Encourage Hygiene in Kids

Keeping children healthy involves ensuring that they follow good hygiene habits. Yes, you know. Washing their hands. Sneezing in their elbows.  Blowing their noses in tissues. Yes, good, ole’ basic hygiene.

Keeping good hygiene ensures that infections don’t get passed around as much and last for shorter durations as well. So, how does a parent ensure that kids develop good hygiene. By telling them, for sure. But we all know how effective that is. Instead, if you make learning about health and hygiene fun and interesting, they would be more inclined to remember what you “tell” them.

So, here are some fun and yet effective ways to encourage good hygiene in your child:

1. Make Hygiene Habits Fun

Begin by creating an element of fun. Our fun animal and planet soaps make it super-easy to do that. Kids enjoy washing their hands with a cute li’l cow or sweet li’l frog that smell as good as they look. Bring these in and they’ll never complain about having to wash their hands..again.

2. Add Toys and Games

Does your child run a mile at the thought of a bath? Throw in some toys or make it a game of bathing the doll or washing the truck and sit back and watch them have fun splashing about and having a blast getting rid of all the dirt and grime.

3. Bring in Song and Dance

Is brushing teeth a dreaded chore? Liven it up with fun songs or even, a dance.  Just take any nursery rhyme such as “A, B, C” and add your own words for brushing. Kids Soup, for instance, has some fun songs to help make brushing teeth really fun and interesting.

Let your little ones swing and sway while you sing in the background and before you know it, teeth brushing would be something they’ll looking forward to.

4. Read about Hygiene

Finally, end the boo-boo around hygiene with books. Brush, Brush, Brush by Alicia Padron  and  Germs are Not for Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick  are just some books that you can check out when adding to your child’s library.

Hygiene is essential but it doesn’t have to be boring and tiresome. Adding simple elements of fun can ensure that kids not only remember what you teach them but they do it happily, making life as a parent so much easier.
So, how do you make learning about hygiene fun for your kids?

5 Reasons Why Handmade Soap is the Best Stocking Stuffer Idea

It’s the holiday season and while I’m sure you’re busy ticking off errands and must-dos off your holiday chore list, I’d love for you to get your stocking stuffers for kids too.


Because we generally forget about stocking stuffers until its too late and then, we end up buying stuff that really no kid needs. Think candy. Yes, I know. We’ve all been there and done that.

So, this year, let’s re-launch the Wett Giggles blog and talk about why natural, handmade soap is a fantastic stocking stuffer for kids of all ages:

1.Encourage Clean Hands in a Fun Way

One of the best parts about choosing a Wett Giggles soap as a stocking stuffer is that you’ll never have to worry about grimy hands and nails. These cute animal- or planet-shaped soaps will win over kids instantly and have them actually rushing to wash their hands.

The manicure brush ensures that nails too are clean and germ-free. A mother’s dream come true!

2.An Affordable Stocking Stuffer

Stocking stuffers should be super-affordable and your Wett Giggles soaps cost just $10 which makes them a steal, considering they are a toy-soap-manicure brush, all-in-one cute, little sudsy bundle.

Plus, to make these even more affordable, we’re giving you a cool 20% discount on all orders. So, yay!

3.Natural, Safe and Totally Mom-Made

You know how you cringe each time you buy a soap that has ingredients you can’t even pronounce let alone know about? Yes, Wett Giggles mom, Karen St.Clair too felt the same way. That is why, each soap is made of all-natural ingredients that you know and love. Think shea butter, natural glycerin, essential oils.

Also, each soap is carefully made by hand and yes, with lots of love.

4.Unusual and Unique Soaps

These fun, natural and handmade soaps are a great option when you need variety. With 9 animal soaps and 3 planet soaps,  you have plenty of choice. Depending upon a child’ s favorite animal, planet or even, color, you can get a handmade soap to brighten up their bathrooms.

Meet all the Wett Giggles soapy animal characters  and planets too.

5.A Range of Soapy Options

Want the soap but not the brush? Okay. Want the toy but not the soap? That’s fine too. We want to make sure that you get a stocking stuffer that your kids would love and enjoy, and so offer a range of options for you to choose from.

So, head over to Wett Giggles and get your cute, natural, handmade childrens’ soaps NOW!

The Summer Solstice is here!!

The longest day of the year and the shortest night of the year.
It arrived June 21st at 1:16 PM (EDT)
At the same time winter officially begins in the southern hemisphere of the world.
 Solstice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning “Sun to Stand Still.”

As the days lengthen the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the Sky.
Since the early times people have been celebrating this event.
In New York the Summer Solstice was brought in with a yoga celebration.

Whether you celebrated or not summer is here and for many New York kids
That means “No School” staring next week.
Enjoy the season.
