Balloon bums

Updated: Feb 27

I came across this video of an incredibly creative preschool teacher, using “balloon bums” to demonstrate to her kids how to properly wipe their bums, so I showed it to Mishka. During our discussion + demonstration, I realized her biggest struggle is holding the toilet paper properly so as not to get her hands soiled. We played this simple game to help her visualize the process and improve her coordination: smeared Nutella on a plate and asked her to use toilet paper to wipe it off, without getting it on her hands. We also talked about how much paper to use for a pee versus a poo. It was fun, silly and super effective. Inspired by Today’s Parent.
