Teach your child the importance of cleanliness
Explore a germ's journey from toilet seat to tummy and learn how to prevent illness through careful hygiene. Teach children the ABC – antecedents, behaviour and consequences. Antecedents are germs in the environment, behaviour is washing hands, and consequence is keeping well.
Germs are easily removed by washing our hands with soap. Encourage children to wash all the germs away with soap and water, instead of putting their hand in their mouth and making themselves sick.
Look around the cafe scene and see if your child can identify where all 6 germs might be hiding; by the bin, on the table, etc. Discuss why you should wash your hands after touching certain areas.
