    How fitting for these kids who are growing up in corona virus times! This looks really simple to do but has a very effective and powerful message. Love it.

    As a nurse, I am always trying to teach my kids about germs! This is a perfect way to clearly illustrate it 🙂 Even before the coronavirus, I was preaching “WASH YOUR HANDS” all the time, lol.
