Children learn by exploring the world and their environment. So I'm sure my Princess has learned a lot about fine motor control and artistic expression when she finger paints my kitchen wall with soft, stinky, cat food. Did you know that hand washing is one of the single most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs*? I have a few fun tricks to get my preschool students and my own Princess Destructo washing their hands after messy activities and as part of a healthy routine through out the day.

Hand Washing tip # 2: Sing the Alphabet Song at least once while hand washing. This will help give a time frame for scrubbing since children might not know how long 30 seconds really is.
Hand Washing tip #3: Take pictures of the different hand washing stages and post them near the sink. We have done this at the child care center and laminated the photos to keep them from getting soggy. This will give children a visual reminder of what to do while hand washing.
I'd love to hear tips for getting your family to scrub up!
