TIME TO PLAY AND PRACTICE!
Take your child to the sink and practice washing hands with soap. Explain what are the palms of your hands and start by scrubbing the palms. Wash the back of hands, in between fingers, thumbs, and tips of fingers and fingernails. Sing the ABC song while washing your hands. Remind your child that sneezes and coughs allow germs to get on our hands and that can make us sick.
