Germ Songs

 


Sung to tune of Twinkle Twinkle takes about 20 seconds perfect length for washing hands.

Twinkle Twinkle little star

See how clean my two hands are

Soap and water wash and scrub

Get those germs off rub a dub

Twinkle Twinkle Little star

See how clean my two hands are.


Here is a song I sing with my kids when washing our hands. Not only does it get them to wash for longer, it helps them to remember to really scrub.

Sung to the tune of “Row, row, row your boat”

Wash, wash , wash your hands,

Play our handy game.

Rub and scrub, scrub and rub,

Germs go down the drain.

(Sing it two times to take about 20 seconds.)


Five Little Germs

(used as a flannel board story)

Five little germs, sitting in a row

The first one said, “On hands, I like to grow.”

The second one said, “I like to fly in the air.”

The third one said, “I don’t care.”

The fourth one said, “I travel on a sneeze.”

The fifth one said, “Wash your hands? Oh, please!”

Swish goes the water

Bubble goes the soap

And the five little germs

down the drain they float.



Germs, germs, germs, germs.

Germs, germs, germs, germs.

The germs crawl in;

The germs crawl out;

The germs play peanuckle

on your snout.

Germs, germs, germs, germs.

Germs, germs, germs, germs.

The germs are here; (right hand)

The germs are there; (left hand)

The germs are hiding everywhere!

(Make big circles with arms)

Germs, germs, germs, germs.

Germs, germs, germs, germs.

There’s germs in your sneeze,

(sneeze in right hand)

There’s germs in your cough,

(cough in your left hand)

There’s germs on you hands that won’t wipe off!

(rub hands like they are dirty)
