Be Aware of the Germs

To show how easily germs and viruses can be passed on, I put about a teaspoon of honey in a small piece of plastic wrap and squeezed it into the palm of the first girls hand. I then had her shake hands with the girl next to her and then each girl would turn and shake hands on down the line. The honey was still very sticky by the time it reached the last girl and the point was made in a fun way. I provided baby wipes after and stressed to wash hands often, warm water, lots of soap, sing happy bithday or twinkle twinkle little star twice to make sure you are washing long enough and gave each girl a small bottle of hand sanitizer.
