Sick Kid? Keep Germy Tissues Contained With This Parenting Hack!

When my kids are sick, I spend most of my day picking up dirty tissues from the sofa, floor, table, etc. They're everywhere! Plastic bags don't work well to contain tissues because they fall over easily, and most sick kids don't want to get up every three minutes to throw their tissues away. 

My solution: Have your child use an empty tissue box as a portable garbage can for dirty tissues. When it's full, just throw the entire box away and start all over again.

Good idea my son has a cold and there were tissues all over the floor this morning when he woke up
