11 Dental Health Month Crafts

Dental Health Month is this month! Dental health is very important for both adults and children.  Starting children early on healthy lifestyles will have an effect on them for a lifetime.  I have been so busy lately with all these events that I have not had time to put together our own crafts but I wanted to share our favorites from Pinterest.  Don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest!

   This is another post using eggs to show how important it is to brush your teeth and avoid certain drinks from KinderKids

This is a play dental chart, your kids can use it for dramatic play and to learn more about their teeth from Making Learning Fun
