Learning to brush your teeth can be a fun activity, especially when you have a cool new toothbrush to do it with... We received donations of about 50 new toothbrushes and some toothpaste. So, I decided it would be a great opportunity to teach the Grade R (kindergarten) kids at one of our primary schools about dental hygiene and keeping their teeth clean. The kids had several different types of tooth brushing techniques including the back-handed holding technique, the applying excessive force technique, the grin and bear your teeth technique, and the toothpaste everywhere technique, etc. One girl was mimicking me while I was demonstrating how to brush but she didn't put the toothbrush inside her mouth. Others were eating the toothpaste and then coming back for more.
