For some reason, they didn't put any soap dispensers in my new
artroom. I have 4 sinks. Since most of what we use in my class is
water soluble anyway, I usually just have them rinse their hands. Most
teachers give the kids a restroom break after specials anyway (there is
a big restroom near the art room & gym). If we are doing something
really messy or sticky, I will give each child a squirt of soap from my
Pampered Chef "suds pump," which uses regular liquid soap, but it comes
out like shaving cream. The kids just love it! Plus, since it is mixed
with water (in the bottle, that's how you get the suds), it rinses off
quickly. I have them wet their hands, get a squirt and rub, then rinse
(if you try to rub under the water, the soap goes away too fast). It
works great, and eliminates the desire to go play at the sink, where
they just LOVE to suds up their hands! (I can hear them in the restroom
banging away on the soap dispenser. They get enough soap in their hands
to wash a whole dog, much less their two tiny hands :?)
