Washing Hands

Lots NEW! Washing hands properly has never been more important, and is something that children rarely do thoroughly enough unless supervised. In an effort to remind children of how important proper handwashing is, we've gathered together our existing resources and produced new ones to cater to all ages. Look at the slideshows together, print out the posters, laminate and display prominently in the classroom and home, and - for younger kids - create a good new habit with our new reward charts.

Remember - 9 steps to clean hands, and keep those viruses at bay!
