The sneeze demonstration for the Wolf Germs Alive! adventure involves putting confetti in a balloon, blowing it up, and then popping it. The confetti ends up all spread out, like germs in a sneeze.
For the Germs Alive! mucus demonstration, you make fake “mucus” from borax, warm water, and glue. Then you use something like glitter or cocoa powder to see how the mucus traps small particles.
The child should sing the song while washing his or her hands. When she gets to the end of the song, she knows she has washed her hands long enough to get them clean.
This shows a great demonstration for how to show kids how easily germs spread.
