I shared some fun activities over at The Primary Pack! You can learn how to make a model of a mouth out of a paper plate & marshmallows or use play dough & beans!! Check out the post here.
We read “I Know Why I Brush My Teeth”, by Kate Rowan. This book has great information and is accompanied by kid-friendly illustrations. After reading about plaque and the importance of brushing your teeth, I had the kids use yellow highlighters to add plaque to their teeth.
Then, they used the toothbrushes and white paint to “brush the teeth clean”!
It was definitely a hit!
I’ve linked up with Share It Saturday, where you can find all things kid-related!!

Check out these hands-on dental health activities. Use fun manipulatives to explore concepts of subtraction and addition. Kids can “pull out teeth” for subtraction, count teeth with tools from the dentist, and so much more!
