VIDEO: Sto:lo Health Services creates puppet show video to explain COVID-19 to kids

Facebook video features songs, puppets, and simple explanations from community health nurses

A video created by two nurses at Sto:lo Health Services is teaching kids some of the basic about how to stay healthy, and avoid spreading illnesses like COVID-19.

The video was shared on Thursday on their Facebook page, and features puppets that children who go to the Sto:lo Nation daycare would already be familiar with, like Mommy Kitty and Bugsy.

The community health nurses in the video, Trina and Janelle, use the puppets to teach kids about germs, how they get shared, and how to wash hands properly. They’ve even adapted the lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star, a common 20-second song used as a guideline for handwashing.

“Twinkle, twinkle little star, look how clean my two hands are,” they sing.

The video is just over 11 minutes long, and filled with health tips for kids and caregivers. That includes staying home and not having play dates. They also add what children can do to stay active, such as saying hi to neighbouring friends over a fence.
