 My kids are older so we don't need to do anything to make it fun.  Its just part of the routine they are use to.

When they were little i would let them pick out a new toothbrush.  Pick between a couple different toothpaste.

Right now my daughter has a brush that lights up for as long as she needs to brush for. To make it fun we turn off the lights sometimes and she brushed in the dark :)

 We used to sing and dance while we did it, but now they just love it on their own.

My daughters love brushing their teeth. I tell them that I get a turn and then they get a turn after me. Improves dexterity in their little hands/wrists and is teaching them good oral habits.
