  • Learn simple precautions
  • Remember to wash their hands properly
  • Find positive ways to learn even when schools are closed

Wash This Away is created by a collaborative that includes the award-winning Finnish children`s band Mimmit and both Finnish and American educators. Based on a video which enjoyed runaway success in Finland, it has already been translated into English, Spanish, German, Japanese, Swedish and Norwegian. Hindi will be released soon! This English-language version has been created with international audiences in mind and includes new activities that incorporate music, art, dance, and language learning which can be used by parents or educators.

While singing along, kids can join in a fun hand washing dance based on key word signing. The song brings hope and consolation in a difficult situation. The chorus, which encourages everyone to wash their hands, plays for 20 seconds, the recommended duration for hand washing.
