I like this story during the fall, especially. It is meant to teach children about germs and the importance of washing their hands in a fun way. I made the felt pieces myself, simply by drawing them free hand on the felt and cutting it out. I traced one of my hands to make the template for the hands, I wanted them to be a good size. You could trace a child's hand, though. I also made my hands two different colours in a silly attempt at multi-culturalism. The story, as I tell it to my buddies, goes:

Once upon a time there were two little hands that went to daycare. They loved all the things there were to do and had lots of fun! Today was going to be another great day. The two little hands decided to play with the blocks. But while they were playing with the blocks, a germ got on their hands! It was the kind of germ that can cause a tummy ache. But the two little hands didn't care, and they didn't stop playing because they couldn't see the germ and they didn't know it was there!

The two little hands got tired of playing with the blocks and their friend called them to play with the cars. The two little hands had lots of fun playing with the cars. But while they were there, a germ got on their hands, and it was the kind of germ that can cause a fever. But the two little hands didn't care, and they didn't stop playing because they couldn't see the germ and they didn't know it was there!

The two little hands saw some friends at the sand table and went to play there. The sand was so much fun! But while they were there, a germ got on their hands, and it was the kind of germ that can make you cough. But the two little hands didn't care, and they didn't stop playing because they couldn't see the germ and they didn't know it was there!

Now the two little hands wanted to play with the play dough. The play dough was so squishy! But while they were there, a germ got on their hands, and it was the kind of germ that can cause a sore throat. But the two little hands didn't care, and they didn't stop playing because they couldn't see the germ and they didn't know it was there!

The two little hands looked over at the art easel. They wanted to paint a picture for Mommy. So they went over to the easel. But while they were there, a germ got on their hands, and it was the kind of germ that can cause vomitting.  But the two little hands didn't care, and they didn't stop playing because they couldn't see the germ and they didn't know it was there!

Now their teacher called that it was time to wash up. The two little hands waited in line till it was their turn. Then they went into the washroom and turned on the water. They wet their hands and added soap. They rubbed and rubbed and made lots of bubbles! Then they rinsed their hands under the water. And do you know what? All the germs went down, down the drain. All the germs except one little germ. But that was okay, because next the two little hands took a cloth and rubbed their hands dry, and when they did that, that last little germ stuck to the cloth. The two little hands were ALL CLEAN!


(Please adapt this story to fit your group.  When working with 3 - 5 year olds, I like to let them choose the activities that the hands do, and also the kind of illnes the germs cause.)
