The preschool staff at Kiddi Caru Peterborough have discussed hygiene and the importance of keeping clean. The children have shown a strong interest in talking about washing their hands and brushing their teeth. So, we developed this further by making a non-messy activity where the children had tooth paste in between clingfilm. The practitioners drew on mouths and teeth which the children really enjoyed cleaning. They then began to discuss further the importance of keeping clean to stop the spread of germs.
