Glitter Germs for Hand Washing Experiment for Preschoolers

Today the PM class learned about germs and how to keep from spreading them. They covered their hands with lotion and sprinkled them with germs (glitter).

We have shown children how germs and bacteria spread by having glitter around the room for the children to touch. The children saw how easy it was for glitter to spread from one item to another and from their hand to their friends.

They then washed and were surprised at how sneaky those glitter germs were and scrubbed more.

Hand washing is a very important part of each day as it reduces the amount of bacteria.
