Schools may be shuttered across the country due to the coronavirus, but important lessons for little ones continue amid the pandemic. A cool science experiment — using the easy-to-find home ingredients of pepper and dish soap — has gone viral in an effort to teach kids the importance of washing their hands. Kristen Bell shared a video of a Miami teacher’s video demonstration, calling it an “important” lesson, and urged her followers to “tag a parent” to share it with.
