Explore Germs Using Glitter!

Looking for a way to teach your little ones about how germs are spread? Try this glitter germ activity! Mix glitter into your favorite lotion. Then explain to your little one that you are pretending the glitter is germs. Show how glitter can move from one hand to another just by shaking hands. You can also show how the glitter transfers to all surfaces that you touch.⁠

As the final step, show your little one how washing your hands gets rid of the glitter (aka, the germs!) It’s a great way to get visual for your little one! Try it at home and let us know how it went!⁠
