Brush Those Teeth
Kids can learn how to brush their teeth with hands-on play. Help our children learn good hygiene at an early age to support their habits for a lifetime.
- Play the game together with kids. Encourage them to talk about their actions as they play. For example, “I’m brushing in circles. I’m brushing the backs of the monster’s teeth!”
- The next time children brush, have them pretend they are on Guy Smiley’s tooth-brushing game show.
