A Connecticut mom's "stay healthy" supplies station is taking over TikTok, as she inspires families with safety tips during the pandemic.
Shannon Doherty, of Darien, shared her creative hack with parents. Millions are loving Doherty's DIY sanitizing safety area, which includes candy-scented hand sanitizer, brightly colored face masks and a bowl of mask chains.
The station sits near Doherty's front door and her four kids are huge fans. Doherty made it easy for them to pick and choose what they're grabbing for each day, and even the masks were fabrics chosen by the children.
"It's helped me a lot -- keeping my kids organized and teaching them independence," Doherty told "Good Morning America." "I realized when they went back to school, a part of their routine is to stay healthy."
"It's fun for them too," she added. "And I think it normalizes it more."
Doherty is also the founder of Coco and Lala, a lifestyle brand for women and children, which launched a campaign to encourage hand-washing. The proceeds went to the organization No Kid Hungry.
Doherty's other viral TikTok hacks include self-serve meal stations for her kids to enjoy a quick bite.
