Happy Global Handwashing Day!

October 13, 2013 in Children's Health Education

So here you are looking for some creative ways to show the kids how to wash their hands and The Singing Nurse wants to help.  Teaching our preschoolers and young children about proper hand washing is a great start to living a happy and healthy life.  When we are knowledgeable about being healthy and not spreading our germs we are being good neighbors too. I have gathered some of my own hand washing posts and would love to share other great resource from cyberspace to help you with your preparations. 

Yes, Oct. 15th is set aside by the CDC as “Global Handwashing Day” It is so true that many illnesses and deaths are being prevented by good hand washing. 

This is the link to the CDC where you will find loads of info.

I love this video about hand washing in India, they make a hand washing contraption that is very creative. Try and make this with your older kids, it would make a wonderful science project.
