Almost every announcement, whether on tv, radio or social media now has guidelines on how to stop the spread of COVID-19. We all are probably struggling with papery dry hands, that not even the thickest hand creams can save. But are we applying the same urgency to the kids around us? This must be a confusing time for them all and the new Baby Shark tune is here to help.
A new rendition of the viral ear-worm has now introduced a song to help inform the millions of Baby Shark fans worldwide about the importance of washing their hands.
According to the World Health Organisation, one of the best ways to prevent infection and spreading of the disease is to wash your hands for more than 20 seconds. But we all know that kids can sometimes be stubborn about following these rules. The new Baby Shark rendition is bound to have them bopping all the way to the bathroom sink to practice their newfound handwashing skills.

Even celebrities are finding ways to get their little ones on the handwashing train. We saw this great video of Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson singing to his daughter while helping her to wash her hands. Another super popular song among children is “You’re Welcome” from the Disney film Moana. In this cute video, The Rock sings the rap portion of the song while helping his daughter.
Parents, you’re sure to have a song that’s a favourite between you and your child? Why not try singing that with them? This will promote proper handwashing.

Before my showers now, Baby Tia (mama mia) demands I sing the rap portion of my song “You’re Welcome” from MOANA, while I wash her hands. We realized a few weeks ago that the rap portion of the song is perfect timing when getting your little ones to have fun washing their hands. Stay healthy and safe, my friends. D And gotta love how at the start of this vid, baby Tia is like, “just shut your mouth and sing daddy” 😂
