A little imagination and play can make daily chores and routines with kids a whole lot easier. So we have partnered with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) to help you add some fun and games into your children’s tooth care and our girls helped us make a cute video for you too.
Sometimes it pays to play — at least when it comes to parenting young children.
I can’t begin to count the times when my kids have started to get cranky or resistant about something and I quickly change the mood by turning the chore into a game.
Instantly, what was boring or unpleasant to them becomes exciting and fun.
To liven up the daily challenges of fighting tooth decay, our girls helped us make this fun video about how they are going to take on the Mouth Monsters…
How to Beat the Mouth Monsters During Mouth Madness
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is helping parents get playful about tooth care.
With their Mouth Monster website, the AAPD is equipping parents and caregivers with all the tools and resources they need to help their kids fight the Mouth Monsters – Tooth D.K., Ginger Bite-Us, and Tartar the Terrible.
Yes, by introducing your kids to these characters you can have fun together while you teach them how to fight tooth decay.
There are a ton of fun printables and tools to really get your kids excited about battling the Mouth Monsters.
You can download and print their Mouth Monsters Defense Kit which includes printables like these great Mini Mouth Monster Mirror Posters that you can put on the bathroom mirror to keep the fun going as they “start and end the day with Monster-busting and brushing.”
During the month of February, in celebration of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the AAPD is hosting MOUTH MADNESS — a one-on-one tournament of tooth care, watching little teeth take on the Mouth Monsters one big game at a time.
Each week there is a new match up, along with new tools to build Mouth Madness spirit. As well, you have a chance to nominate your own child as MVP.
