'Tis the season for coughs and colds and other yucky stuff!  It can be tough for kids to remember to cough and sneeze into their elbow (like The Count!) rather than their hands, and to wash their hands frequently. Help kids understand the importance of these and other ways to stay healthy with help from PBS Kids.

Sid the Science Kid has an online game all about germs.

This great video shows the Journey of a Germ with a catchy, easy to remember tune.

Dragonfly TV shares this experiment tests whether coughing and sneezing into our elbows is helpful, and ways to conduct your own experiments at home.

Good luck and stay healthy!
