The Bean Bag Game introduces in a playful way the six critical moments when one should wash hands. Some material is required for the activity. You can prepare the activity alone or let the students craft everything that is needed for the activity.
a. Bean bag: fill linen with lentils/sand, close linen with rubber bands, cut the rest of the linen off and draw or write the respective source (as listed below) on it. The bean bags represent germs that have their source from one of the six critical moments one should wash hands:
• after playing with a pet,
• after using the bathroom;
• after sneezing,
• coughing or blowing the nose;
• after touching a cut or sore;
• after playing outside;
• before eating.
