1.) Create a chart with 3-5 easy steps of the actual process.
2.) Have all the necessary items such as soap and a towel in reachable distance for your child.
3.) Put a step stool in the bathroom so your child can reach the tap on their own.
4.) Use a simple children’s song to sing while soaping up hands to ensure the soap stays on for at least 30 seconds or as close to that as possible.
5.) Do the whole process with them at the beginning so they are clear on how it all works and what the expectation is.
6.) If they are really young you can assist them otherwise for older children, you may want to encourage them to complete the task on their own as much as possible. 7.) Always ensure safety measures when in the bathroom and around water
