Teach your child about good hygiene and show him how to brush his teeth properly.
- 5 to 10 minutes
- 2 toothbrushes
With the appearance of the first tooth comes the need to begin brushing it. One way to help a child concentrate on the task is to do it together in front of a mirror.
- Brush each other's teeth, keeping toothbrushes separate to model good hygiene.
- Brush the teeth on a doll or stuffed animal, talking about what you are doing.
