Why Take Baths or Showers?

Baths are awesome!

Why do we cut our

finger nails?

  • Germs can live
  • under our finger
  • nails
  • Long nails can
  • scratch people

  • grown toe nails.

Taking Care of Our Nails

  • Wash around and under
  • your nails
  • Cut nails regularly
  • You can cut them
  • straight across or into
  • a rounded shape.
  • It is best to cut
  • toenails after you have
  • had a bath or a shower

But what if I bite my nails?

  • short that they bleed
  • Or the skin around the nail
  • becomes very red and sore.
  • It is a hard habit to stop
  • We never want to put our
  • hands in our mouth.

Cool facts about nails!

  • Fingernails grow about 2
  • times faster than toenails.
  • They grow faster in summer
  • than winter.
  • It doesn't hurt to cut your nails
  • because the nail is dead.
  • Deer's antlers, horse's hooves
  • and bird's feathers are all
  • made from keratin, the same
  • protein from which human
  • nails are made.
