Of course you should set a good example for your kids when it comes to brushing and flossing their teeth, but sometimes showing is not enough. Kids learn best from hands-on activities.
At Kool Smiles, we have a variety of fun activities you can do with your kids that teach them about their teeth.

Fortunately, there are lots of kid-friendly activities you can do with your kids to get them interested in their teeth. Playing is how children learn, so spending time with your kids in a way that feels like play will help drive home the important lessons of caring for their teeth.
