Supplies and Preparation
- Before class make ice cubes (teeth)
- Food coloring
Place ice cubes (teeth) on the sensory table.
Sprinkle salt on the tops of the ice.
Encourage children to squeeze a drop of food coloring on top and watch holes form.
As the children watch the ice melt, talk about how the ice is like your tooth and the holes are like cavities forming when you do not brush your teeth after eating.
