Getting your kiddos to wash their hands can be tough, especially if they’re always bouncing off the walls ready to play. To help get your kids on board the hygiene train, check out some of these fun ways to teach hand washing for kids that are sure to keep them interested!
Choose the Tune

Do a Science Experiment
What’s a better way to teach than with a science experiment?! Grab some pepper, a dish, and some soap and you’re good to go. Check out this video to see how it’s done: Instagram
