Let’s play Disappear the Coronavirus with a fun game…. sounds like entertaining right?
With so many alarming news about the Coronavirus or COVID-19, our children are probably going through a time of stress because they see their parents and other adults in the same situation.
we need to explain the Coronavirus to our children in a way that is more adapted to their vocabulary and age.
What a better way to explain than with games??
Teach your kids to ”Disappear” the Coronavirus with a fun game so they can understand what it is and how they can take care of themselves so they don’t get it.
LET’S PLAY: DISAPPEAR CORONAVIRUS?
How to play it?
- Paint the child a coronavirus on each hand with a marker.
- Explain to the child how and why they need to wash their hands frequently during the day. (To do it correctly they must wash for at least 20 seconds).
TIP: Tell them to sing the Happy Birthday song until it ends. (this will make 20 seconds approx.)
- Promise the child a reward if he/she achieves the goal: To wash their hands so many times that they ”Disappear” the Coronavirus from their hands by the end of the day.
TIP: To achieve a higher motivation, set 2 points for each day that the goal is accomplished and when there is a total of 20 points he/she gets a prize!!!!
