Activity: Hand Wash Superstar

Washing hands has always been important but with an ongoing pandemic, hand washing has become much more than a necessity, it’s life-saving. People of all ages, young and old are constantly being reminded about the importance of washing hands. And while adults might just need a reminder, little ones need some guidance to learn the correct way of washing hands.  Good hygiene can become a lifelong healthy habit if taught at an early age. 

To spread awareness, we have a video for your child, created by a child, on how they can be a Hand Wash Superstar just like the kid in the video, Rohan! Allow your child to take their own time to go through the video, which has demonstrated steps alongside a catchy song to make hand washing more memorable for every time they do it.
