If you’re a parent to young children, you know handwashing can be a battle. And, with the spread of the coronavirus, we know the importance of handwashing to stay healthy and prevent the spread of germs. Here are some great ways to make handwashing more fun and less of a chore.
Use different colors/scents of soap. We have a great selection to choose from. Then, let them pick which soap they want to use.
Sing a song. You can go with Happy Birthday twice or come up with your own 20-second handwashing tune.
Make it a game. Track down the germs in all their favorite hiding places, kind of like scrubbing off the “sugar bugs” when brushing teeth.
Start a sticker chart. Hang a sticker chart in the bathroom and give away a gold star or smiley face each time they wash.
Try a washable marker. Make a smiley face on the back of their hands with the marker and wash until it disappears.
Add some glitter. Put glitter and water in a spray bottle and spray “germs” on your kids’ hands. Have them wash and then look for the “germs” to see where they’re still hiding.
Grab one of our foaming hand soaps and let the fun begin!
