Lice prevention and hand hygiene are more important than ever. With summer camp for kids opening back up, we need to focus on prevention. Whenever a group of kids get together, there is a possibility of a lice outbreak at summer camp is high. This is also the perfect breeding ground for germs on hands, so proper hand hygiene can go a long way for both us and the little ones. The right products can help make protecting you and your family easier.
Here is a list of items you should pack in your kid’s summer camp survival kit:
Camp Packing List
1. Hand Sanitizers & Masks
2. Lice prevention products
3. Bug Repellents
Keeping your kid’s hands clean is one of the easiest ways to help prevent illness and is the first line of defense against the spread of germs. When germs make their way to kids, they can become sick just by touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. With stores being open again and people being out and about, we all need to be sure to properly and frequently wash our hands!
There are other options to support proper hand hygiene for kids, like wipes and sanitizer, when soap and water are not available. The Fairy Tales Hair Care Hand Sanitizer
is made with just four ingredients that exceed CDC’s recommendations
and follows issued FDA guidelines
. There are no added fragrances or oils to help ensure maximum efficiency. Like all our other products, there are no harsh chemicals, pesticides, toxins, parabens, or sulfates.
Lice outbreaks occur when kids go from being apart for some time to being around each other again frequently. This is why back to school season is the peak time for lice outbreaks. The same thing can be expected when kids go from being in the house over the last couple of months to summer camp. Although they will be distancing themselves, lice can still spread on hats, helmets, back packs, and more. Taking the steps to add lice prevention to your kid’s summer camp essentials now will save you from the dreaded infestation down the line.
