April 7 – Pepper, Glitter & Germs

Moms and teachers across the nation are using pepper, dish soap and glitter to teach about germs and how they spread. Children can see for themselves why it is so important to wash their hands to get rid of germs.

You can find this demonstrated with Hands-on science activities to teach children about germs or learn how to be a Germ Buster over at Elevate.

Any of these activities are sure to bring a giggle to the kids while emphasizing why it is so important to keep washing their hands—so they stay healthy and have fewer germs.

Today’s activity: Try the pepper or glitter experiment. Then wash your hands well while you sing the Happy Birthday song twice.
