HealthWorks! At Home: Dental Hygiene
Let kids see the power of brushing teeth first-hand with this easy at-home activity.
All you need is:
· A hard-boiled egg
· Cup of dark soda
· Toothbrush and toothpaste
1: Put the hard-boiled egg in a cup of dark soda and refrigerate overnight
2: After refrigerated, let the child use a toothbrush and toothpaste to brush the egg. It should return to its white color.
3: Teach how sugary drinks/food isn’t healthy for teeth. And how brushing teeth helps keep them healthy!
Now that our teeth are sparking clean, let’s move! Get the family together to do these exercises:
