Kristen Bell Shares Viral Video of Pepper Handwashing Trick That Helps Kids Understand the Importance of Washing Their Hands

It’s undeniable that now is the time to teach our curious kiddos the importance of proper handwashing, but they’re not always willing to take time out of their activities to do so. Thankfully, actress Kristen Bell is sharing a genius “pepper trick” to help little ones understand exactly how washing their hands will keep the germs away. 

The Frozen star shared a video that was originally captured by a preschool teacher named Amanda Lorenzo, who used pepper, water, and soap to teach her students about the importance of washing their hands properly.

To demonstrate how using soap helps fight against germs, the teacher has one of her students dip their fingers into a bowl of water sprinkled with pepper. She then asks the children to notice that the pepper (aka “the virus”) has been transferred onto the child’s finger.

To drive the point home, the teacher then asks her student to dip the same finger into a bowl of soap. Finally, the teacher asks the same student to put the same finger with soap on it back into the pepper water. 

As the video shows, the students are shocked when the pepper quickly reacts to the soap and moves away from the student’s finger, simulating how soap stops the spread of germs. The demonstration wraps up with the teacher asking the children, “You see how important it is to wash our hands?”
