Teaching Kids About Hand Washing and Germs Doesn’t Have To Be Scary

2015 January 9



Kids Hand Washing Education



Sometimes when adults are teaching very young children about hand washing they get too caught up in the “GERM” part. For little kids this can be kind of scary. We want children to have a basic concept of germs, but we don’t want to make them so freaked out that they won’t touch anything, or they want to wash their hands every few minutes. That creates a whole new problem.

Billy Gorilly’s SuperStar Hand Washing video makes learning about hand washing fun. It keeps the germ talk simple so it’s not too scary. In the video Billy teaches kids the basics of Why, When, and How to wash their hands in words they can understand. Then, they get to pretend to be world famous rock stars singing the SuperStar Hand Washer song. The song is just the right length for hand washing timing, easy to sing, and lets those pesky little germs know who’s boss as they’re being sent down the drain. You just might find yourself singing the song too. I think it makes a lot more sense than happy birthday. What does your birthday have to do with hand washing anyway?
