Making Hand Washing Fun

With the cold and flu season here, it is very important to talk with kids about why washing their hands matters. But they probably think that it’s BORING. To make it more fun, learn the Kid Scoop Scrub Squad Sing-a-Long Song!

Experts say that washing your hands for at least 20 seconds is the best way to make sure you remove germs and gunk. Help your kids memorize and sing one of the online Scrub Squad songs while you scrub to help you make sure that you wash long enough.

SUDSY STUDY: A comprehensive study by the University of Oregon revealed that ordinary bar soap is just as effective as antibacterial soaps in helping reduce instances of illness.

The way a movie vampire covers his face with his cape is a good way to stop the spread of germs. Teach your children how to do “The Vampire Cough.”

Next time you need to cough or sneeze, cough into the inside of your elbow as shown.

If you cough into your hand, you’ll spread germs as you touch things. Think about it: When was the last time you used the inside of your elbow to touch something?
