Words from Mia’s Mom (Local Parent Group – Post Inspiration)

As a mother of a four-year-old daughter, I was always looking for ways to make learning about dental health fun and engaging for her.

One day, while brainstorming ideas, I came across the idea of dental health crafts and activities.

I was excited to try some of these activities with my daughter and help her learn about the importance of dental hygiene.

We started with a toothbrush painting activity, where my daughter dipped her toothbrush into different colors of paint and created beautiful toothbrush paintings on paper. She loved the activity and was proud of her toothbrush paintings.

Next, we played dentist together, with my daughter pretending to be the dentist and giving me a check-up.

We used her toy dentist set and she was thrilled to use the tools to check my teeth and make sure they were clean.

We also created a tooth fairy craft, where we made a tooth out of paper and decorated it with glitter and stickers.

My daughter loved the craft and was excited to put it under her pillow at night, hoping the tooth fairy would visit.

She inspired me to do this post on a list of dental health activities for preschoolers.
