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.
The Mouth Monsters Defense Kit includes printables like 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.”
The Mouth Monsters Defense Kit also has monthly award certificate to fill out for your child. You gotta love how thrilled little kids get when you give them an award!
