Several weeks after the Coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified, many European countries have taken the decision to promote social distancing, including the closure of schools. As the Coronavirus epidemic continues to grow and remains largely unknown the focus is therefore on prevention which includes caring for young children at home by their parents as a measure to avoid aggravating the pandemic situation.
What are the basic actions to limit transmission? What rules are to be put in place?
From today, with schools being closed, parents will be able to entertain and educate their children by teaching them good hygienic practices in a fun way with paper fortune tellers from the ORAPI Hygiene Foundation.
Designed in partnership with the FNES (National Federation for Education and Health Promotion) and approved by the Rectorate of Rhone, these paper fortune tellers are specifically aimed at educating young children.
How to avoid COVID-19 transmission? Why should you wash your hands more frequently? How to wash your hands well? These are all questions that children have been asking their parents more and more in recent days. Parents, whilst playing with their children will be able to explain to them in simple words, a complicated situation, which reinforces hygiene practices not always easy to understand when you are a child.
Timeless paper fortune tellers developed by the ORAPI Hygiene Foundation have a double objective. They allow parents to entertain their children and teach them good hygienic practices until they return to school where they will resume activities and studies, with the knowledge that a few basic hygiene rules can have a real impact on their health.
Aimed at primary school children, these games, written by an ORAPI collective made up of 12 people from different departments and different subsidiaries, were validated by a group of educational tools analyzed by the National Federation of Education and of Health Promotion in France
