How to wash your hands

It's really important to wash your hands to help you stay healthy. Listen to this song and sing it when you wash your hands!


  • Do the preparation activity to help you with words from the video.
  • Watch the video then play the games to check your understanding.
  • You can also print the worksheets for more practice.
  • Remember to read our discussion question and leave a comment!


This video helps make the proper handwashing technique more memorable for little hands. So wet those hands and apply some soap!

It's time for my big song!

Rub the palms – one, two

Rub the knuckles – one, two

Rub the insides of your fingers

And the back of them too.

Rub the thumbs – one, two

And the nails – one, two

Now time to rinse

Happy clean hands for you!

We can eat healthy food; when we get sick, we eat soup; we do not eat something sweet; we can brush our teeth every evening and every morning.
