3 Hand Washing Songs that will make your toddler enjoy hand washing
Now, more than ever, it is so important to ensure we teach our kids the proper hand washing techniques. Making it more fun makes it easier for them to remember it.

Hand washing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), follow these five steps to wash hands properly:

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. You can hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice to use as a timer. Or better yet, check our list below of 3 awesome songs you can use.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Alternatively, you can use the following songs:

Wash, Wash, Wash Your Hands
(to the tune of “Row Row Row Your Boat)

Wash, wash, wash your hands
Wash them nice and clean
Wash them on top,
Wash them on bottom and fingers in between.
Wash, wash, wash your hands
Wash them nice and clean
Wash them on top,
Wash them on bottom and fingers in between.


If You’re Happy and You Know It Wash Your Hands

If you’re happy and you know it,
Wash your hands!
If you’re happy and you know it,
Wash your hands!
If you’re happy and you know it,
then your face will surely show it,
If you’re happy and you know it,
Wash your hands!


Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
Look how clean my two hands are,
Soap and water, wash and scrub,
Get those germs off rub-a-dub,
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
Look how clean my two hands are.
