    a few things we did

    I sent home a toothbrushing chart. Many moms reported back that it was tremendous incentive for toothbrushing. You can put it on something decorative.

    We made homemade tooth paste.

    We used red playdough shaped it into "gums" and put in white beans shaped like teeth. Then we let it dry. A few days later, we practiced brushing and flossing our teeth.

    If you go to "Colgate Bright Smiles" you can get free materials. I've used this for several years in kindergarten and have gotten videos, samples of toothpaste, toothbrushes, games & teaching guedes, etc.

    one activity I do is give each child a tooth shape to cut out of black paper. Then I give them white paint and a toothbrush to paint with. They have to paint the entire tooth with the paintbrush. this is to emphasize how important it is to clean our teeth thouroughly.
