Stingrays and Handwashing

January 20, 2012 in Children's Health Education, News - Updates

I was recently in Florida for some R & R so we packed up the kid and visited the local Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center. The center had loads of fun for all ages, pre-school to adults. It had great stuff to view, and fun activities to do.

Click hear to learn more about stingrays right from the center. Check out their store.

We especially enjoyed feeding the stingrays. We were given some interesting info about stingrays then told to wash our hands.  Hand washing was very important in order to remove any lotions or sunscreen.

The kids and grandma really enjoyed the stingray feeding and you can be sure we washed our hands afterwards as well. Hand washing is important to both animals and people. Proper hand washing keeps us all healthy.
