Make Brushing Fun: Tips to Encourage Your Preschooler to Brush Their Teeth

Brushing can be a chore, especially for young children. But there are ways to make it more fun and enjoyable for your preschooler. Here are some tips:

Let your child choose their own toothbrush!

Allow your preschooler to pick a toothbrush in their favorite color or with their favorite character on it.

Make brushing a game!

Set a timer for two minutes and challenge your child to brush for the entire time. You can also make a game out of spitting the toothpaste into the sink.

Brush your teeth together!

Make it a family activity and brush your teeth together. This can help your child feel less alone and make brushing more enjoyable.

Use a sticker chart!

Create a sticker chart and reward your preschooler for brushing their teeth twice a day.

Sing a song!

Sing a song while brushing to make it more enjoyable! You can use a favorite nursery rhyme or make up your own song.

By making brushing fun, you can help your preschooler establish good dental habits and prevent cavities.
