What do you do when your kids can’t reach the taps in the bathroom? This inexpensive Faucet Extender is easy to slip on over your taps to bring the water to your child’s hands. It’s easy to put on and off and a real back-saver because you won’t have to lift your kids up to reach the water anymore.
When kids can’t reach the water to wash their hands at the sink, it can be frustrating for both them and parents or caregivers.
It can be really frustrating for little ones when they’re not quite tall enough to reach the water to wash their hands at the bathroom sink. It can also be backbreaking when you have to constantly lift them up so they can scrub up after each visit to the toilet. Especially if, like me, you have several little ones needing their hands washed multiple times per day.
Well, I got a something in the mail today, and I’m super-excited to share it with you!!
SO excited, in fact, that I ripped right into the package before taking a photo, and then had to tape it all back together to take this next photo!
Before I go any further, I want to make it clear that this is not a sponsored post. I haven’t been asked to share this product or my opinion of it with you. It’s simply a product that I love and want to tell you about. I think every home daycare provider needs one of these in every bathroom. Parents with young children will love it too.

It’s this Aqueduck Faucet Extender for toddlers and preschoolers. I spotted it on Amazon, and I thought I’d give it a try because several of my daycare children cannot reach the taps in the bathroom and I always need to lift them to help them wash up after using the toilet or when scrubbing up for lunch and snacks.
This faucet extender is seriously the best thing since sliced bread!
You and I both know how challenging it can be to help a growing toddler wash his or her hands at the sink. Even wth a stool in place, young children may still be unable to reach far enough to get their hands under the running water. So you lift them closer with your one arm, and then try to pump the soap, and help them scrub and rinse, all with your one free hand.
Oh, Mama’s, you are going to love this. It will mean independence at the taps for your little ones!
Using your faucet extender:
Honestly, installing the faucet extender could not be any easier. See the slit in the blue part of the extender? You simply slip that over your faucet, and you’re good to go.
2 seconds. Easy on, easy off. How cool is that??
Turn on the tap, and check it out! Even my smallest toddlers will be able to reach the water! Isn’t that awesome?
This is going to make a huge difference in how independent the hooligans are in the bathroom, and let’s face it, it’s going to make things a whole lot more convenient for all of us!
Now that I’ve tried it out, and I know easy it is to use, I’m going to order 2 more. One for the downstairs bathroom, and one for the craft room.
You can get yours here!
Don’t you just love a product that makes life just a little bit easier?
Now, if they could only had something to help kids turn the taps off and on!

It’s great as long as a parent is in there with the kids. I could see mine turning the water on full force and my finding a flooded bathroom. Worse yet, my bathrooms were at the top of the stairs and behind/below the stairs. The twins would have loved to see water running down the stairs like they did when they tried flushing toys to each other ONCE. Landlord = NOT amused.
Even with the water on full blast, it does not reach all the way across the sink, Sharon. And assuming your child can’t reach the water flow without this, they wouldn’t be able to turn the water on either, so a parent would be there to turn the water on and off. This just eliminates the need to have to lift your child to reach the water, which (especially in a group setting) can be very hard on the back.
I love this product,and the best thing ever is that I can buy it from amazon uk. Thank you
I have 3 boys age 3, 2 and 1 year old and they just love the water but washing hands always been a bit tricky…..
Very useful product.
Yes! I wouldn’t be without it!
