You can then talk about the activity together at home or in the classroom, so that you have explained how to make sure that children wash their hands as thoroughly as possible.
What are germs?
This is a lovely little activity sheet that helps you to explain what germs are, what they can, and what they cannot do to children, and then get them to write about it.
Germ patterns worksheet
Cut out the germs at the bottom of the page, and match them to the correct pattern on the rest of the worksheet.

Germ coloring page
We couldn’t have germ activities for kids without including a germ coloring page could we. We have made this a little bit of a Covid-19 coloring page really, we admit; but that kind of seemed to be appropriate really.
