Creative Activities for Children’s Dental Health Month
Tell your kiddos to show off their smiles — February is National Children’s Dental Health Month.
Did you know the average child smiles 400 times a day? With so much grinning going around, your little one should be proud to display their pearly whites!
Educating children about the importance of oral care is key to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Whether you’re a dental professional, a parent, or a teacher, we want you to help spread the message of good dental health. To help you get started, here are two kid-themed activities.
This activity gives youngsters a hands-on dental lesson. Start by “brushing the teeth” using the white paint, toothbrush, and egg carton. Once the paint is dry, it’s time to floss! Work with your tot to place “plaque” (moldable dough) in between each egg carton crack. Then use the floss to remove the dough from each tooth.
A Mouthy Mix-Up
Teach your little one how to maintain a healthy mouth. Work with your child to unscramble the words and find out what makes an extra-sparkly smile.
