For an art activity for clean and dirty hands we had the children trace their hands then cut them out. One hand is left as is to represent the clean hand and on one hand spread some glue then sprinkle sand or glitter on. We did this during a hand washing theme. The art activity shows the children a clean hand and a dirty hand.
When doing secondary colour green. I gave pre-cut circles to my 4-year olds and had them finger paint the circles with yellow and blue. Then paste the green germs on a larger paper and paste googly eyes, draw legs and nasty teeth!
Wont You Please Cover Your Sneeze!
I have the kids decorate a paper plate to look like them. I use the multicultural crayons for skin tone. Add eyes, nose, mouth, you can ever add hair (yarn, etc).
Then trace the childs hand, color, cut out.
Glue tissue to hand, then glue both to the mouth on the paper plate.
I make a bulletin board with the title “Wont You Please Cover Your Sneeze!”
For our two’s we drew a picture of a tooth on a piece of white construction paper and then added some ‘germs’ (little ugly faces) then we let the kids use toothbrushes and white paint to clean the germs away. They all had a great time and it really helped them understand why it is so important to brush their teeth
