At the end of one arm glue on a square piece of tissue. This is for covering their persons mouth. Talk about when you sneeze or cough – you are to cover your mouth so we don’t spread our germs. My preschoolers just loved this and afterwards my Kleenex box was used frequently.

Materials: white paper, water liquid dish soap, food coloring, straws, dish basin What to do: draw a large hand on to the white paper. In the basin add the soap and food coloring to the water. Have the children blow using straws to make bubbles then have the children place their hand over the bubbles. Talk about how and why we have to get rid of germs.
Trace the childs hands and help them to cut out. Then we spread glue on one, then put a tissue in between. Then we matched the other hand on top. Gave us a great opportunity to go over nose-blowing skills in our 3-5 class!
