Tooth Song and Game


Tooth Song and Game

[20 Minutes]

Help your child learn about tooth care with this easy song and sorting game.

You'll need:

• magazine • supermarket circulars • child safety scissors • paper bag • crayon or marker

What to do:

  1. Teach your child the Tooth Song (Tune: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"):
  2. Brush, brush, brush your teeth.
    Do it every day.
    Up and down,
    Round and round.
    Brush and smile today!
  3. Then play a sorting game with your child. Cut pictures of foods from magazines together.
  4. Take two small bags; one labeled with a picture drawn of a "happy" tooth and one with a "sad" tooth.
  5. Together, sort the pictures and place them in the correct bag according to whether the foods are healthy or not.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • Do you brush your teeth every day? How many times?
  • What color is your toothbrush?

Useful information:

While you are having fun together, your child is developing thinking skills, sorting skills, language skills, and basic training in good hygiene.
