Glitter Germy Hands Experiment
Don't just tell kids about germs...SHOW them how germs spread and how to wash hands the right way with this fun glitter germy hands activity!
Stacey aka the Soccer Mom
In a mixing bowl, combine hand sanitizer and glitter. Stir together the hand sanitizer and glitter until well combined and set aside.
Print a copy of the Germy Hands Activity Sheet for each child. Ask them to trace their hands on the sheet, then draw what they think germs look like inside the outline of their hand.
Tell kid(s) to dip their hands into the glitter mixture, then have them rub their hands together until dry.
Once your kid's hands are dry, ask them to place their palm into the handprint they traced on the activity sheet.
Next, have kids shake hands with each other (or you) and observe what happens to the glitter "germs." Ask kids to touch their favorite toys, door knobs, etc. and see if the germs continue to spread.
Practice washing hands and see how long it takes to wash away germs - see how long it takes!
