Wash Your Hands with Peppa Pig

This hand-washing Peppa Pig advert was put out by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help to familiarise children with the concept of washing their hands a little extra during the novel coronavirus pandemic. The recommendation is to wash hands for at least 40 seconds, in order to get hand hygiene to a level likely to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Singing the song is optional!

As part of ongoing collaborations with children’s entertainment and education platforms, the World Health Organization (WHO) partnered with preschool animated television series Peppa Pig to launch the “Wash Wash Wash Your Hands” sing-along video. Peppa and her friends show the fun in safe hand hygiene by encouraging children and families to wash their hands for 40-seconds.
