Hand washing and skin health in children

We are working hand-in-hand with Pampers to support families and children who are learning how to wash their hands and take care of their skin.

As children return to school and slowly other things begin to reopen, keeping up good handwashing habits will be vital to stay healthy.

In the excitement of seeing friends and having more freedom, it will be easy for children to forget: why is handwashing important, how does it work, and why does washing our hands end up making our skin dry?

Our free downloadable activity pack contains a range of fun activities to take children through these questions, creating some crafts and singing along the way!
