Scrub scrub scrub those germs away!
The object is for kids is to “clean their hands” by scrubbing the beads away. This sensory bag is also soothing to touch and can be a great stress reliever!
- 1 Gallon Size, Freezer Grade Zip Bag
- 2 Cups Clear Hair Gel
- 20-25 Beads (You can use rice, small pasta, or beans too!)
- 1 Permanent Marker
- Masking Tape
- Old Toothbrush (You can use a paintbrush or small comb too!)
Place your hands in the middle of the bag and outline using a permanent marker.
Open the bag and fill it with 2 cups of hair gel.
Add in beads.
Turn the bag over so that the marker side is facing down.
Push all of the beads inside the hands. Hand your little one a toothbrush and have them “clean the hands” by srubbing and pushing the beads outside the hands
Talk about the importance of regular handwashing. There are some great resources for families of young children on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website.
