Tot School: Dental Health

So I received this little activity book in the mail from our dental insurance provider. According to them February is children's dental health awareness month. I figured I'd jump on the bandwagon....not this week, or next week...but the week after that. lol I did throw my trays together a little early. I used some of them last year and made a couple new ones. All of them are originally inspired by one of my favorite blogs From the Hive.
This is just a little craft/tray activity. Glue on some yellow teeth and brush them white using a toothbrush and white paint.
This is from 2 Teaching Mommies. Match the toothbrush with the correct person (cause nobody wants to share toothbrushes). Sidenote to my wonderful husband: If you're reading this notice that these pictures are taken on the cedar chest which means that I came through on my vow to de-clutter it this week....AND it's only Monday. :)
Roll and cover game.
Flossing practice. I really think that they boys will enjoy this one.
Last but not least is a food sort. Good foods vs. bad foods. Last year Asa put all the 'bad foods' on the smiley tooth with the logic 'these foods are yummy', and all the 'good foods' on the sad tooth with the logic 'these foods are yucky'. lol We'll see if we can switch his logic this year. :)
I am also planning on doing a couple of experiments that can be found at Luv Pre-K. Super easy and totally worth checking out if you have a minute! Happy blogging.

  2. What fun ideas for Dental Health Month, Jess! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday! I couldn't find an email, so I'll ask here. I love your blog and am wondering if I could get permission to use your photos with a link to the photo post, credit to you, and a comment letting you know if I'm using a photo. Here's a post I wrote about it: http://livingmontessorinow.com/2011/06/15/request-for-montessori-photo-permissions/. Please let me know if I could have photo permissions. Thanks so much! :) Deb @ LivingMontessoriNow.com

  6. A good dentist is one of the best things you can ever do for yourself! Having a nice, reliable dentist that can do things like this is really important. Toothaches and unattractive teeth should not be overlooked.
