Hey kids, wash your hands for 20 seconds to stop germs from spreading.
20 seconds is the same time it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song two times in a row!
On your mark, get set, wash!
(A voice hums the happy birthday song.)
Wet your hands with warm water.
Now use soap and make lots of bubbles.
Wash the front and back of your hands. Great job!
Don’t forget to wash between your fingers. You can do it!
Now rinse and dry your hands really, really well.
(The humming stops and the stopwatch dings.)
Hooray! Now you’re hand-washing heroes!
