Activities to Make Oral Hygiene Fun for Kids
Fun activities can make learning anything fun for kids, even something like oral hygiene. At Kool Smiles, we know how important good oral hygiene is for children — and we also know how hard it can be to teach.
That's why we've put together dozens of kid-friendly activities to help make learning fun!

Kool Smiles Lesson Plans
We even have lesson plans that teachers can download to teach students good oral health. We have plans for kids from Kindergarten through fifth grade that help children understand how their teeth are affected by what they eat.
Our lesson plans include fun demonstrations like using paint to show the effects of sugar and building a giant mouth to show how to properly floss!
Kool Smiles also proudly supports PBS Kids by offering specially made games, activities and ideas to our patients. We also have an app that is free to download and features coloring sheets, brushing and flossing tips and a fun brushing timer for kids.
