Takalani Sesame – reminds us that’s caring for each other is important.
I remember watching Takalani Sesame as a child and brings back so many fond memories. Big Bird and the Cookie monster were my favourites!
Takalani Sesame is sharing resources to help parents and children during these uncertain times.
For over 50 years,Sesame Workshop has provided support for children and families around some
of the most challenging situations in their lives. Takalani Sesame friends
can convey simple strategies and messages that help adults provide care and
comfort to children.
As a response to the Coronavirus pandemic facing the world today, Sesame Workshop’s
Caring for Each Other initiative is launching new resources for families and children.
The new resources include brand-new animated videos featuring our furry friends, printable activity sheets focused on healthy habits and playful learning activities.
Takalani Sesame has some wonderful videos . I have showed a few to Emily and she loves them. We now sing the hand washing song.
Washy Wash with Elmo: Families can sing along with Elmo as he washes his hands for 20 seconds—washing the germs away and helping everyone stay healthy.
Learning how to sneeze and cough safely with Grover: Grover helps children remember that when they feel a tickle in their noses or throats, they should remember to sneeze or cough into their upper sleeve or elbow—that helps keep the germs off their hands and away from other people. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Time to Wash Your Hands! Our Muppets demonstrate different situations where children and families should wash hands—after coughs and sneezes, before eating, after playing, after using the bathroom, and more.
Caring for Myself, Caring for Others: Our Muppets help children understand that when you take good care of yourself, you’re taking good care of others, too
It is important to remember to care for ourselves and others during this scary time. Children can feel our frustration and our fears.
Parents and care givers often find it hard to explain what is going on in a way that children ill understand.
Thank you to Takalani Sesame for making these resources available.
