Toothbrush Painting: Dental Activity for Kids

It seems like a simple task — teaching kids to brush their teeth for 2 minutes twice a day. But when you break it down, it’s really a lot more than that. Sure, standing in front of the sink with a toothbrush and toothpaste in their mouth is great, but are kids really brushing correctly?

Try our toothbrush painting activity to teach kids how to brush the entire mouth – front teeth, back teeth, top teeth, and bottom teeth. Once they’re done painting their character’s entire mouth, remind them that they need to do the same with their teeth, making sure to brush each and every one.

MATERIALS: Yellow Construction Paper, Printer, Old Toothbrush & White Paint.

2. Using an old toothbrush, dip the bristles in the white paint.
3. Use the same motions you would use to brush your teeth to paint your characters teeth.
4. Make sure to fill in the entire mouth, giving your character a bright white smile!

MAKE IT MORE FUN! Add mint extract to the white paint to make the smiles smell minty fresh!
