#scrubchallenge is a fun and compulsive music and movement activity to learn the correct hand washing procedures as recommended by Health Protection Scotland and the World Health Organisation (WHO). We’ve added in some extra moves to make it more challenging and fun.
Hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of flu, norovirus and COVID-19. So let’s spread the message about hand washing!
There are two different scrubs; a simpler and a more challenging version, so everyone can have a go. Use the links below to view the scrubs and tutorial videos.
