If your kids are anything like ours, the struggle to get them to brush their teeth (for real!) can be frustrating. We like to make things a little more traceable for our parents by giving their children Brushing Charts. We ask our little ones to color in the time of day boxes they brushed their teeth during and practice writing their letters by putting a “F” or “M” on the time they also flossed or used mouthwash. When they have all their boxes colored they can ask mom or dad (that’s when you get involved guys!) to let them drop it off to claim a prize!
This is the chart we use for our kiddos. Feel free to download it and use it for your own! (Just don’t forget the prize! It can be a great motivational tool for some kids.)
What do you use to teach your kids good dental or overall health? We want to know!
