Wash your hands, dear children all,
Palms we rub and backs as well,
Round the wrist we leave no mark,
Else a sad tale that would tell;
Rub the knuckles, brush nails, too,
Clean, bright hands nice work can do.
Now 'tis time to wash your face,
Soap your hands, and rub away,
Gently round the ears we go,
Don't forget your eyes, I say;
Nose, and mouth, and forehead high,
All to make quite clean we try.
 Pretend to wash hands.
 Rub palms together.
 Rub back of left hand with palm of right.
 Wash left wrist, then right.
 Rub knuckles of both hands.
 Brush nails of left hand with right fist.
 Show hands.
 Touch face with both hands.
 Pretend to rub soap on hands.
 Rub hands together.
 Wash the ears.
 Wash eyes.
 Rub the nose.
 Wash round mouth.
 Rub forehead.
 Rub all the face.
