All Kinds of Brushes
Supplies and Preparation
- Variety of toothbrushes.
- Variety of scrub brushes.
- Pretend fruits and vegetables.
Note: Consider the age and experience of the children to determine if they can refrain from putting the toothbrushes in their mouths. If not, use only other brushes.
Place a variety of brushes in a water table. Encourage children to explore different kinds of brushes and use them to clean different things. Talk about what the different brushes are used for, if they are hard or soft, etc, and link to how we use special brushes for our teeth. Suggest to children that they can practice using small scrubs or circles.
