The Ultimate Dental Health Month Round-Up for Kids


The Ultimate Dental Health Month Round-Up for Kids from In Our Pond  #dentist  #braces  #kids  #toothbrush  #teeth  #tooth  #dental  #pretendplay  #printables  #learning  #homeschool

This round-up was a big sacrifice for me, since I hate teeth, talking about teeth, and dentists!  Ick!  I don't want to touch teeth, pull teeth, or look at them (which makes it challenging to teach hygiene to the children).  My husband is even worse!

Fortunately, I now have a good tribe around me!  The majority of these toothsome ideas came from the wonderful people at Kid Bloggers Network.  Thanks, guys!  I hope you all enjoy them!



Tooth Fairy

We don't do the tooth fairy at our house.  I pay the kids up front for their lost teeth with Disney Dollars (DD), our family currency.  Each tooth is worth $5 DD and $100 DD equals one $10 USD toy.  Dollars may also be earned by "going above and beyond" what your parents have asked you to do.  For example, if you're asked to clear the table and you sweep the kitchen as well, you'll earn some DD.  It's been working very well for us.

This blogger has tooth certificates for both boys and girls.  They could be used at school, a dentist office, or at home.  The tooth chart one each certificate would be very helpful in keeping track which teeth each child as lost.  The free printable is available on The Quiet Grove blog.

I love making things with felt.  This tooth pillow is so cute!  It has a pocket for storing the tooth.  Add a ribbon handle and hang it on your child's door to make your fairy duties easier.  Get all the details on the Buggy and Buddy blog.

Perhaps your tooth fairy doesn't come in the door.  Maybe she (he?) uses a special fairy door.  These doors are so adorable that I want to install one just for the cuteness factor.  This blog post has a round-up of tooth fairy ideas.  Click the picture above to see them all.

A fairy as special as one that collects teeth must have special money prizes.  These coins are simple to make and would make a fun addition to your child's pretend play.  Add a fairy wand and some wings for the ultimate fairy fun!

What a collection of books!  If reading about teeth doesn't cause you to clam up and get queasy, you'll love adding these books to your library.  Perfect for school, dental offices, homeschool, and more.  Get the complete list from the Kennedy Adventures blog.
