Fighting Preschool Germs - Teaching Little Ones About Infection

Every school year, parents send their little ones off to preschool and kindergarten, where they meet new friends, learn new things -- and bring home new germs to spread around! It's not easy to teach little kids about germs, infection and the importance of handwashing, as the germs are invisible and bug-laden hands usually look clean.

The HealthyHands site offers germ-related curriculum for preschool, primary and elementary kids to help teach kids about the reality of germs, the importance of handwashing, and other hygiene matters. Parents can use these ideas and downloads at home, too. One less strep throat or green-runny nose is worth the effort, eh?
