When I saw this picture on Pinterest, I knew I had to have some of my own little bathroom pass sanitizers for the new school year. Little did I know this idea came from a fellow Colorado teacher. Thanks so much Stephanie from Third Grade Thoughts! (I just used your brain breaks with my students today and they were a huge hit!)
I didn’t label the passes girl or boy because I’m a girl and I understand that creatures of the male persuasion can typically go to the bathroom much more quickly than us gals. There’s a reason the line for the women’s bathroom is always 10 times longer than the men’s! I don’t want some poor little 8 year old girl dying because there is a boy’s pass sitting there and she doesn’t dare use it. I would rather have generic “bathroom pass” bottles that can be used by anyone. (Although I have a feeling the girls will take the red and yellow and the boys will take the blue and orange — just a theory)
If you would like to use the same labels I do just click on the picture or this link and download them for free at TpT.
Here are my little guys all ready to go. See what you think!
