Imagine soft, washable, water-tight, polyester-lined pouches that you stick into your child's pockets with double-sided tape. You squirt in some non-toxic disinfectant gel.

Thereafter, whenever your child inserts their hands into their pockets they get cleaned. On the inside of the pocket, there should be something that is interesting to the touch. It would keep your child exploring/fidgeting with and disinfecting their hands in the process.

You insert the pouches into your child's pockets only when going to public places or somewhere where there is a high chance of them picking up a harmful germ.

This idea could be crowd-funded via Kickstarter or similar.

Foam-lined inserts to maintain the scented gel in position

Amazing! Simple, easy, highly effective, and appropriate in the current scenario. The pocket-insert can be lined from the inside with some kind of foam or a sponge that absorbs the gel. So that the absorbed gel will stay in place and rub against the kid's entire hand. If the gel is just placed in the insert, it may slide down to the bottom.

The gel could contain a scent that the kids would like to smell or show off to their friends further motivating them to use it frequently.

Agreed. I imagined something like this, only the soft spikes (villi) would be turned inwards https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0826/7525/products/puffer_ball_9_inch_solid5.jpg?v=1540862478

Door handles with built-in disinfectant sprays

This idea made me think of more ways in which we could "automate" the process of disinfecting our hands. One way that came to mind was designing door handles with built-in disinfectant sprays, activated either by sensors or by the action of pulling the handle down in order to open the door.
You probably wouldn't want this on every door and it would have to be quite a fine spray in order to avoid making a mess. I do think this could work well in public bathrooms, hospitals and schools.

Likewise, a system that automatically disinfects the handles on shopping carts would be cool
