This makes me not look forward to winter. All of the kids are too young to understand the concept of covering their mouth and washing hands afterwards. Should I just walk around with sanitizer all day?!

That's funny we have had a problem with that this week as well. I try to have the kids sneeze into their elbows or sleeves so they dont have to keep washing hands. 1 washes then the others want to, then they play in the water. What should take 2 mins ends up 10 minutes and a watery mess. That takes too much time for every sneeze but, I don't want to discorage children from washing their hands. I sneeze into my collar of my shirt. Some of the daycare kids have done that but u are right about the young ones. They either don't get it at all or cover after the sneeze. If I see a sneeze coming I dive to get the kids elbow up! I have used hand sanitizer but I worry about what it might do to their skin if used too much. I don't send home for sneezes so sometimes (winter especially) they are sneezing all day.
