Any ideas for having the kids wash their hands without chaos? I have 18 four year olds at a time. This year I want to go outside before we eat snack, so that I only have to do hand washing once a day. We just do not have enough time for more than that. This means that when we come in, I will have 18 kids needing to wash at our 1 sink all at the same time. Having them all line up and just wait is unthinkable- I did that at times last year, and it really is just way too much touching and playing around for me. I would like them to go up one table at a time (6 kids) while the others wait, but I am imagining what the others will be doing at their seats. I have a student pass out bowls for snack and I can just see them playing with the bowls out of sheer boredom and driving me nuts! I thought of putting books on the tables for them to look at while they wait, but then I am afraid that I will have destroyed books when they get their snack and spill apple juice on the tables. Any ideas?
