Dental health ideas for your centers

February is dental health month

These are some ideas to celebrate with your kids:

Talk with your kids about the importance of dental health
  • what do we use our teeth for?
  • why are our teeth important?
  • how many teeth have we got?
  • have you ever lost a tooth?
  • what happens if we don't brush our teeth?
Make a thank you card and give it to your dentist.
Use an old tooth brush to paint
Visit the tooth fairy site to read about her stories
Sing this song:
Brush your teeth
Tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”
Brush, brush, brush your teeth 
Gently round your gums.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
 Brushing can be fun!!
Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Brush them every day.
The front, the sides, the back, the top 
To keep decay (or the bugs or germs) away!
Floss, floss, floss your teeth
 Floss without delay.
You need to do this every day 
To keep decay (or the bugs or germs) away!
