GlitterBug Handwashing Kit

This activity-based resource kit is suggested for Kindergarten to Grade 8. The GlitterBug Handwashing Kit includes a UV light, ‘Be A Germ Stopper’ teacher resource manual, student activities and ‘Wash Your Hands’ book. Combined with other school-wide and classroom strategies, it can help to promote hand hygiene and infection control.

The GlitterBug Handwashing Kit supports the Healthy Living Strand of the Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum by addressing expectations under the topic of Human Development and Sexual Health related to hand hygiene promotion and infection control.

Schools from Simcoe County District School Board and Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board can loan a kit through their school board. Please connect directly with your school board to identify the key contact person to arrange to borrow the GlitterBug Handwashing Kit.

Schools can also contact our School Health team for consultation to help integrate the GlitterBug Handwashing Kit as a component of a comprehensive approach to supporting student well-being. For more information, please contact your School Health Public Health Nurse.
