Children's Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health Month Ideas for Preschoolers

Here are some ideas for National Children’s Dental Health Month (February):

Have children try painting with toothbrushes instead of paintbrushes.
Give each child a tooth-shaped paper cut-out and have them do string painting using dental floss.
Cut the bottoms off of large plastic soda bottles and turn them upside down (they look like teeth).  Staple several together, and place in a sensory table.  Spray them with shaving cream, and give children toothbrushes to brush them clean.
Take a field trip to a local dentist office.  Ask for donations to set up a dentist dramatic play area.
Make a Happy Tooth/Sad Tooth graph.  Give children grocery store ads, and have them cut out pictures of food.  Place foods that are good for your teeth on a Happy Tooth chart and foods that are bad for your teeth on a Sad Tooth chart.
