Our guest bedroom is now "their" room. They refer to this room as theirs with their bed, their toys, their movies, their stuffed animals, and so on. We have three toy bins for them, a basketball goal on the closet door, a plethera of children's movies, and of course their bedtime stories all within the guest bedroom. This is always a great conversation piece for any adult guests we have to come stay in our guest bedroom :) With my little munchkins always running around and playing, they obviously get quite dirty as that is what little boys do best! They are also using the potty so we are constantly washing our hands between potty breaks and me being a germ freak. The boys LOVE their stool in the bathroom because it gets them closer to the sink but it still doesn't get them close enough; they can just barely get the tips of their fingers to touch the water with the stool helping them.
So, I took to Pinterest and instantly found the perfect FREE solution! Here are the items needed:

Moms.. That is ALL you need!! Depending on your faucet shape you will have to cut accordingly for it to stay on the faucet. Here is how I did mine:
I cut across the entire bottle where you see the arrows placed. Then, I simply cut a 'U' shape out of the remaining plastic making sure to leave an area uncut at the top to rest on the faucet. Lets take a look at the photo below to help you make sense of it...
Easy as that and you have your own faucet extender! I did sand down the pointy edges to make sure no one poked themselves as the edge can be somewhat sharp. The boys love it and think it is a "weally cool wata faw!" (Translated as a really cool water fall, duh.)
This was a simple project that was fun, easy, and totally worth it! And of course it takes care of those cute, tiny, grimey hands in your home-sweet-home.
