The children in preschool have been learning about germs and how important it is to wash our hands with soap and water.  We did an activity with water and pepper as the ‘germs’.  The children put their fingers in and all the ‘germs’ stuck to their fingers.  When they used soap all the germs were kept away from their fingers. 

This was a fun activity which helped the children to understand about the importance of hand hygiene and washing our hands with soap and water.
