Toddler Brushing Teeth!
This is the way we brush our teeth, brush our teeth, brush our teeth! Here’s a fun way to introduce the act of brushing teeth to your toddler. Take a digital photo of your toddler with his mouth wide open. Then print it out on a big piece of paper. Next put some contact paper over the photo. Now get a kid tooth brush and a little toothpaste and start brushing the teeth on the photo/contact paper. Let your toddler help and be sure to sing while you do it. If you make it fun, your toddler will have fun with it also! Take a wet washcloth or paper towel to wipe it off and do it again!
- digital camera
- contact paper
- washcloth/paper towel
- Keep the photo with contact paper in the bathroom so that your toddler can help to brush it right before/after he lets you brush his teeth.
- You can take a photo of yourself and cover with contact paper, to let your toddler play the adult role and brush your teeth on the paper.
