When I was a full time babysitter the children I was watching didn't like to wash their hands. So we came up with a skit: We called ourselves the 'Germ Tedectives' We all sat around the table and pretended that 'customers' would call in with questions on how to take care of germs. The germ detectives would then answer their questions and even make house calls to show a customer proper care. It worked really well. Then we printed out cartoon germs and colored them. I cut them out and we taped them to surfaces where germs are in the bathroom. This was to remind the children that they were touching germs and they needed to wash their hands.
Lastly I taped a hand washing picture chart on the mirror so even the littlest hands were washed properly.
