For the Tooth Fairy
At-Home Fun Zone
Given school closings and the possibility of being kept at home with kids, a real challenge for parents and caregivers is figuring out what to do with children during this unknown amount of time.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) suggests taking their minds off the sudden change of routine by printing out some of these fun oral health activities to do at home! These activities will help both you and your children cope best with all the changes happening around us. Here are a few fun activities for kids:
- Bring the Little Teeth League to Life with Color!
- Help Henry and Zoey Escape the Curse of the Dark Tooth!
- Mouth Monster-Themed Crossword and Word Search Puzzles
In addition to these printable activities, AAPD also suggests having children make brushing playlists with their favorite songs! Have children search for their favorite songs and pick which two minutes of the song they like best and want to brush to. Have them pick 5 to 10 songs to make their usual brushing routine more fun for all!
