Brushing and flossing are fun. Think about it. You smile when you brush your teeth, so you're having fun...okay, is that a bit of a stretch? Maybe. I'm sure for some of you or some of your kids, brushing is just another chore to do twice a day.
Yes, the brushing routine is, well, routine, which can get boring and not-so-fun. There is no reason even though it is a routine -- which we want it to be -- it has to be blah. Turn your brushing routine into a fun few minutes in the bathroom with these ideas:
-- Use a cool brushing app. Brushing DJ plays two minutes of a song off of your iPod or iPhone, which keeps everyone on their toes. It also shows where you should be brushing. It's a jazzy little dude to keep tooth time groovy.
-- Use a cool floss holder. Look at this plastic handy fellow who is ready to give you some smooth floss.
-- Favorite Timer. Grab one of these timers and plug it in. Not only does it time how long your kids should be brushing, it also lets them know how long they should wash their hands...which helps keeps their mouth clean too.
-- Friendly pal. Grab a toothbrush with their favorite character. Winnie the Pooh, Cinderella, Toy Story...Oral B makes something for almost every type of Kiddo.
