Passing long these toys to each other creates a possibility to get an infection. Children should be taught to always wash hands after playing and before consuming foods. Make it fun by singing a song while washing hands or maybe getting them into a routine when playing with toys to have them cleaned. Creating habits early on will help increase the child’s awareness and will lead by example.

Remembering that we lead by example and should try to make sure we wash our hands more often, this will lessen the rate of infectionand the chance of getting sick. As adults, we live in a society today where we do not take time off and tend to become run down. This also will lead to possible infections.
