How to Get Kids to Brush their Teeth

This is a gift that I put together for my nephew Oliver.  He is a good tooth-brusher, but everyone needs a  little encouragement.  When I saw this Papo Hippo with his mouth open wide at Naturally Curious kids in uptown Westerville, I knew Oliver HAD to have him.

Part of doing a mundane thing is mixing it up, making it fun, making a game out of it.  "Okay, you get to brush the hippo's teeth...Now, you get to brush your big boy teeth."  Set a timer.  Sing a silly song.  Do the 'brush your teeth dance'.  Whatever works.  Whatever makes it fun.

Have a fun and playful day!
