Teach While Brushing Teeth

Is anyone else forgetful when it comes to encouraging your child to brush their teeth?  Or did I just shame myself?

Well, I found a way to help you and your child remember and even have some motivation for brushing teeth.

After you type in your child’s name, and print out the chart, stick this cool. personalized printable  on the door of your child’s room or bathroom and tape a ziploc bag with a crayon or two inside of it.

This chart is a great way for your child to learn (or be exposed to) organizational skills, graphing, calendar skills, and responsibility.

When helping Sean Patrick brush his teeth I always sing a transitional song, “brush your teeth, ch, ch, ch, ch, ch, ch, ch, ch, ch!” I’ll spare you the sound bite!

Found this in my files…yes, I take a picture of EVERY moment in my child’s life.

And, I encourage SP to “get all the germies out.”

Naturally, we talk about positional words like top, bottom, under, sides, inside, outside, etc.

So yeah!  Let me know how it goes…I want feedback people!  You love it?  You hate it?  You would never do this?  Try it for a week and once you get in the habit you will quit the coloring business?  What of it?

But yeah, the chart is pretty cool.  I would color it for my toddler but older children should be able to color it themselves after you model it a bit.
