Hand Washing Lesson

Why is it important to wash your hands? Because soap scares away pepper!

Kids love science experiments, and this is one anyone can do at home. It impresses kids, especially those who are too young to learn about surface tension. To them, it's magic. This teacher uses the trick to impress upon children the importance of washing their hands with soap (or detergent). You could go deeper and explain the hydrophilic and hydrophobic aspects of soap molecules, but that would be boring to children young enough to believe in magic. What's important is that they form of habit of washing those grimy hands. -via Fark
