Did you know that February is Dental Health month? Neither did I. Maybe Madonna did which is why we are doing this unit right now! Anywhoo, here are a few ideas that might help you as you teach your kiddo about dental health this week! Since we are going to give flossing a go I am paying particular attention to those activities!
This idea from Mama Bee and the Hive is for a Roll and Cover Mouth! Ironically we will likely use marshmallows for teeth, but you could use gum, or cotton balls! We will likely glue our teeth on and “floss” around them too! This will also keep us from eating them!
Shining our Lights has a wonderful and easy idea for you mommies short on time! Use a chalk board and a toothbrush to help you kiddo learn proper brushing techniques! Draw the teeth and then let you kiddo erase them by brushing.
Here is one more great idea from Mama Bee and the Hive. Let your kiddo practice flossing with a mega block and some playdough! Truly I tell you, its brilliant! Mama Bee has many wonderful ideas on this page, so check it out!
Lastly, because I literally just found it, is this awesome Science experiment from 1st Grade with Miss Snowden. I know that E wouldn’t fully get it, but it was just too awesome not to feature!!
Have fun learning!!
