Teaching kids to floss may be laughable right now, but this project can help change that and get them understand the importance of oral health! Use Play-Doh, a pipe cleaner, and the underside of an ice tray to demonstrate how food and bacteria get stuck in between the teeth. Then, use a pipe cleaner to floss and remove the sugar bugs.
- A pipe cleaner
- Ice tray
By running the pipe cleaner along the outer edges of the tray, we can more effectively remove the “plaque.”
Get competition between siblings by seeing who can clean the most thoroughly or add a toothbrush into the mix!
