You may wonder though,
If it is as simple as that,
How do we make it a habit?
Making something a habit takes time and even if it is a habit we still will forget at times of not wash properly.
One of the greatest things we can do as parents and teachers is to help kids create good habits.
Zilla, Mega and I happened across some fun and interesting hand washing videos on youtube. We've also found some free printable posters and a science experiment worth trying. Take a look!
