Variations and Extensions

  • Paper towels or cloth towels might be used (you could have a little hand towel for each child)
  • Liquid soap or bar soap might be used
  • Please, do not do the traditional hand washing lesson with basin and the pitcher. The point of this is to teach the child how to do a practical activity that comes up in their daily life.
    The only time you might consider doing the traditional hand washing activity is if you are doing a unit study on life 120 years or so ago. (Little House books, or Anne of Green Gables, etc.)
