Children’s Dental Health: 4 Fun Dental Activities for Kids

 

Getting your kids to brush and floss every day isn’t always easy, especially when parents have a million other things on their plate.  But, what if you could make dental hygiene fun?

In addition to providing you with the best alternatives to dental insurance, we’ve made teaching your kids about dental care entertaining AND easy.

To celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month, and help you promote good dental health with your kids, check out these 4 dental-related games that will have your child smiling, engaged and learning in a fun way!

  1. Healthy Smiles Coloring Book: Teach your kids how to take care of their teeth with our Healthy Smiles Coloring Book. Your children can color, while learning the steps to a healthy smile on each page. And, at the end of the book is a “Smile Award” to reward them for taking care of their teeth by brushing and flossing regularly.  [Free download]
  2. Origami Tooth Fairy Envelope: Your children can print out this easy-to-make origami tooth envelope to hold their lost teeth for the tooth fairy. You’ll find instructions and pictures, plus, a tooth fairy-patterned printout to make your envelope. This activity can help lessen the fear of losing a tooth, and excite your children for the “tooth fairy’s” arrival. [Free download]
  3. Smile Word Search: Look backwards, forwards, up, down and diagonally for dental terms, like “brush,” “floss,” and “smile” to remind your kids of the importance of dental care, while challenging them with our Smile Word Search. [Free download]
  4. Tooth Dress-Up: Grab a pair of safety scissors and some glue to dress up a tooth! Kids can accessorize their tooth printout with eyes, hats, mustaches and more, and show them off to the family, or on your refrigerator at home. [Free download]
