We continue our series promoting healthy behaviors to be implemented and tracked for an entire month (and hopefully beyond). The behavior to implement in July is the importance of hand washing regularly to prevent germs from spreading. While summertime typically seems to offer a little break from the common illnesses, it’s still super important to remind your kids to wash their hands after using the bathroom and before they eat. We know that kids can get excited about playing and oftentimes do not want to slow down to consider hand washing, to assist with this reminder, you can download and print your July Behavior Tracking Sheet and use in your home, summer camp setting, or childcare center to encourage and track behavior change.
Watch as The Kidney Brothers sing about the importance of hand washing for good health:
We hope this month offers you many fun-filled memories with friends and family, without having to waste any time on sickness! Happy Hand Washing!
