Getting Kids to Brush Their Teeth

Does any kid like brushing their teeth? How about adding a little excitement to their daily toothbrushing ritual.

A couple of years ago we came across some “Firefly” toothbrushes for kids.

When you squeeze the handle a little light in the handle flashes on and off for one minute, just the amount of time the kids are required to brush their teeth. Aldi sells these toothbrushes for $1.00 and they come in white, blue, green, pink and red. I’ve also seen these toothbrushes at Big Lots.

The batteries last a long time; we’ve never had one run out.

For a little more toothbrushing fun – have the kids brush their teeth in the dark, so only the “Firefly” light shines.

Aldi toothbrush - $1.00
Money saved on dentist visits for rotten teeth - $1000
Kids having fun brushing their teeth – priceless!

Works for me!
