Fun Oral Health Activities for Kids

    Home/Blog/Dentist/Fun Oral Health Activities for Kids

    Children learn through play, so try these fun dental activities that will teach them about oral care.

    Tooth Necklace

    Make a drawing of a tooth on cardboard, approximately 4 cm x 4 cm and use this as a template so children can make 20 teeth (children have 20 primary teeth) using brightly coloured paper. Take a child’s plastic needle and thread it with dental floss and show your child how to string the teeth into a necklace, securing the ends with a knot. Discuss why we need to floss our teeth.

    Eat This but Avoid That

    Cut out lots of photos of food from magazines, including healthy and unhealthy foods. Take two paper bags and draw a picture of a happy tooth on one and a sad tooth on the other. With your child, work out which foods should go in each bag and discuss why diet is important for healthy teeth.

    Personalised Envelopes for the Tooth Fairy

    As your child loses their milk teeth, they can personalise an envelope to leave out for the tooth fairy. Suggest they draw the tooth fairy and write a letter to include with their tooth, in return for a small gift!
