Hand Washing Activities

Handwashing

It is normal to feel a bit anxious about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) | CDC

Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Not only the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) | CDC but many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. If soap and water are unavailable, the CDC recommends the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol as the preferred form of hand hygiene in healthcare settings.

According to CDC, the single most important thing we can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others is to clean our hands. Try creating your own handwashing poster by following the link:

Wash, wash, wash your hands

Wash them on bottom and fingers in between.

Twinkle, twinkle little star
Look how clean my two hands are.
With soap and water, wash and scrub
Got those germs off, rub-a-dub-dub
Twinkle, twinkle little star
Look how clean my two hands are.

2 little hands
so clean and so bright!
This is my left
and this is my right!

Wash our hands, wash our hands
Here we go to wash our hands
To keep them nice and clean!

All around, All around

Before we eat our snack.

Hand Washing Song

The soap on your hands goes sud, sud, sud.
Sud, sud, sud.
Sud, sud, sud.
The soap on your hands goes sud, sud, sud.
And the germs go down the drain.

Asi es como nos lavamos las manos

Asi es como nos lavamos las manos.
Lavamos las manos, lavomos las manos.
Asi es como nos lavamos las manos,
Muchas veces dia.
