Viruses are everywhere. Some travel in the air, while others linger on solid surfaces, like toys and doorknobs. How can you help your children avoid getting sick this winter? Toddlers Toddlers seem to get sick more often than older children. Older children have a better developed immune system than toddlers; however, another factor is that the older a kid gets, the less likely he or she is to put things in their mouths. Toddlers put everything in their mouths, their fingers, their toys, even the remote control! In tests on hospital room items, researchers found that remote controls harbored more germs than any other common item in there! Clean Remote Another major reason a toddler get sick is that they often play near other toddlers. One drippy, runny nose or cough can go from a child’s hand to the handrails on a slide or play kitchen and pass to every other child who touches them. How Can I keep My Toddler From Getting Sick?

5 DIY St. Patrick’s Day Crafts
5 DIY St. Patrick’s Day Craft Ideas
Check out our fun DIY St. Patrick’s Day crafts. They will have you looking for that pot of gold in no time!
One of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions for kids is all little green treat ideas. These would be perfect to wake up to, or find tucked into a lunchbox! You’ll need a cutting machine to follow the instructions…but we think most kids wouldn’t mind if you hand cut (if you don’t have one)!
This adorable Shamrock Wreath is a great DIY St. Patrick’s Day decoration and it is made entirely out of scrapbook paper! Littles will need some assistance using a hot glue gun but the prep is great scissors cutting practice!
Gold is a hot trend we’re loving these fabulous gold DIY Shamrock Coasters, which would be a good craft for teens. They look expensive, and we think the directions could be adapted and made into any shape for any holiday!
We’re picturing this over our mantle now! How gorgeous is this DIY burlap pennant?! Use up scraps of material and lace and if you don’t have a sewing machine a good old glue gun will do the trick!
These easy do-it-yourself painted jars will be the perfect addition to any farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day decor. Use wide-mouth mason jars and use them for flatware at your St. Patrick’s Day party!
