Sing a song and be very exaggerated and excited about it. Be silly and brush my own teeth at the same time. Encourages them to like it and participate.

I let them do it by themselves first. Then I take over and we sing a song. By the time the song is over, I'm done brushing their teeth.

We sing the ABCs and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  Their toothbrushes have characters on them - Cab's is Transformers and Hannah's is My Little Pony so they like using them.  I also act silly with them and try to think of it not as a chore, but as fun time to spend together, being a little silly, but also doing something important.
