Why this activity?
My toddler (I know I keep calling her my baby😂 ), is getting her molars and she is in a lot of pain. She doesn’t want us to brush her teeth. I wanted to create a simple activity where she can use a toothbrush without fearing any pain. Also, my preschooler loves to brush her teeth and wants to use her toothbrush on her dolls. This activity lets her use the toothbrush without making a huge mess.
My toddler ended up brushing her teeth for the first time in weeks. Yes, we do brush her teeth twice a day and try to be as gentle as possible. It was great to see that she associated the toothbrush with fun rather than pain for once.
Happy Teeth Brushing!
