A printable to help remind children to wash their hands for 20 seconds.
Handwashing is one of the best ways to keep from getting sick and staying healthy all year long. 20 seconds is about the same amount of time it takes to sing the alphabet song twice—or the Washy Wash song! Use this printable to help children learn the steps of handwashing and sing along with Elmo.
If you don’t have access to a printer, you can simply look at the screen together with your child.
