We also talked about what makes us smile & took pictures of our cute smiles. Moms & Dads always love these "writing" activities. Here's the Smile Picture template. Brett wanted to do this one too. His says "Looking up cheetahs on YouTube makes me smile." He's all about cheetahs this week because they're fast.
Today we're going to floss. This is usually a new concept since they're so young but they like it! Last year we made homemade toothpaste. Ours didn't taste very good!
- Here's a tooth pattern from childcareland.com
- This is how we brush our teeth song & patterns
- Tooth lacing card pattern
- Lots of great stuff here: http://healthyteeth.org/ We're going to check out the "A visit to the dentist" today.
Yesterday we did this activity. Happy tooth, sad tooth. The kids get confused between whether or not something tastes good & if it's really healthy! I don't have a template for this one but you can cut out two of the patterns above & add happy/sad faces. I used Word to insert clipart into a document and printed out pictures of different foods. You could use the ones I made below. Last year when we did this activity, I gave B the soda picture. I asked him "what is this?" He doesn't have pop at home so he said "beer"! Mom must not have outlawed that one at home yet!
Here's a worksheet templates for a follow up activity.
