There's nothing that will get your kids to listen to you more than if there is the promise of dessert at the end. Yummy Bug Cakes are a delicious and fun way to help kids learn the importance of cleaning up after themselves and washing their hands.

While baking with your kids:
  1. Teach your kids to wash their hands frequently—always wash hands before cooking and eating.
  2. Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds—the time it takes to sing The Happy Birthday Song twice.
  3. Show them how you properly clean up after they've used the kitchen. Use disinfectants to target hotspots like the kitchen faucets, refrigerator handles, and countertops.
