Getting my boys to brush their teeth has always been a challenge. They would rather do any other chore on their lists, and even on the rare occasions when they do brush their teeth willingly, they only want to brush for a few moments. We needed something that would motivate them to brush their teeth for the full two minutes recommended, and we needed a new system of accountability. I created a printable tooth brushing reward chart where the boys can keep track of how frequently they are brushing their teeth, and I gave them each a Tooth Tunes toothbrushes by Arm & Hammer. So far it seems to be a winning combination!
It seems like every time I turn around, he’s back in the bathroom brushing his teeth again! He is having NO problem filling up his tooth brushing chart!
Simon’s not the only one who has been having fun with the new toothbrushes! Sutton’s Tooth Tunes plays “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz (one of his most favorite songs ever!), and Sawyer’s plays “We Will Rock You” by Queen. The music streams from the bristles, but it’s loud enough for others to hear it if they’re in the same room, so we’ve turned our tooth brushing time into a bathroom dance party!
