Children experience all of the same emotions as adults, but they aren’t yet equipped with the tools to handle those feelings. That’s why it’s so important that we help them learn how to recognize and name their emotions.

At Goddard, we practice healthy habits all year long — like proper handwashing! Here are some of our favorite ways for little ones to learn about keeping those hands clean that your family can try at home:

✔️ Wash while singing the alphabet song for a 20-second scrub.
✔️ Together, list some handwashing befores and afters — like before eating a snack and after playing with pets.
✔️ Make handwashing fun with a sensory bin filled with sponges and soapy water.
