Getting your kids to brush their teeth can be a huge obstacle for parents. Although telling your child to go brush their teeth should be enough….sometimes we have to be more creative! These 3 tips will help make brushing teeth fun for your kids and you won't have to nag them as often!!
3 Tips to Make Brushing Teeth Fun for Kids
Singing Silly Songs Can Make Brushing Teeth Fun for Kids
Kids love to sing songs and the sillier the songs the better. I think that parents can make dental care fun for kids by engaging them in song! You may not realize it, but there are lots of fun tooth brushing songs already available…so no worries…you won't have to make one up on your own!
The American Dental Association's Mouth Healthy website has 7 songs with videos that you can watch to learn fun songs to sing with your kids! I have embedded one video below so you can see how fun silly dental songs can be!
A Dental Care Chart Doesn't Have to Be Boring
Most kids love to put stickers on charts and work towards small rewards. When it comes to dental care and brushing their teeth it is really no different! By providing your child with a simple dental chart that they can follow to brush their teeth twice a day…you will be giving them some responsibility and some fun! You can click the image below to download your own free Brushing My Teeth is Fun printable to use with your children!
Using some cute teeth or toothbrush stickers instead of checkmarks can make it even more fun for kids! Here are some adorable “teeth” stickers I found online!
Fun Dental Products Make Brushing Teeth a Treat
It may seem silly, but kids love to have fun toothbrushes and other dental items! I was thrilled when Firefly and Reach contacted me to check out some of their fun new dental products.
This Firefly Star Wars Kylo Ren Lightsaber Light Up Timer Toothbrush was a hot product at our house and I actually had to fight my husband over it so that our 3-year-old could use it! My daughter may not know much about Star Wars yet…but she does know that this toothbrush lights up, has Character voices, memorable movie quotes, flashing lights, lightsaber sound effects and she LOVES it!
As a parent I love that the Firefly Star Wars Kylo Ren Lightsaber Light Up Timer Toothbrush helps teach kids to brush for one full minute on each row of teeth! So it lights up for 60 seconds while you brush your top row and then you start your bottom row for another minute of light up fun!
I also love the Firefly Spider-Man Anticavity Fluoride Rinse. This product is designed especially with kids and parents in mind. It comes with a convenient no-mess cup to ensure kids dispense the perfect amount of rinse. No more messy sinks! The Firefly Spider-Man Fun Pump Rinse is also sugar-free, alcohol free and boasts an amazing melon flavor that kids will love.
I think that fun dental products make getting kids to brush their teeth so much easier! You can find these fun Firefly products at Walmart or Walgreens to make your child's brushing more fun. Don't forget to grab the Reach toothbrushes for adults while you are getting the fun kid products!!
