Don’t Forget to Floss!
An easy way to show your kids how to floss is to demonstrate the proper technique. And what better way to do that than with a glove, paint, and yarn…who doesn’t like to paint?
- Put the glove on your hand and coat it with chocolate frosting.
- While holding your fingers tightly together, wipe the frosting off of your hand – this represents brushing your teeth.
- Show your child all the frosting left between your fingers that brushing alone doesn’t reach.
- Now they can practice flossing between your fingers with the yarn.
Be sure to post your photos of this to Little Shredders Facebook page! Look for more tips on healthy living in future blogs.
Here are a few pictures from a demonstration at a local preschool. Even though, my glove ripped and we used yarn instead of string…they got the idea. Sugar bug poop is gross! We need to brush and floss!
