Are you children off from school this week? Are you having a hard time keeping them occupied throughout the day? If the answer is yes, Pediatric Dentistry of Suffolk County I & II can help! We’ve rounded up a couple of oral health inspired arts and crafts to keep them busy. Check them out!
For this activity, all you need is construction paper, scissors, and white sponge paint. Help your children to cut a piece of red construction paper into the shape of lips and then use the sponge paint to color on the amount of teeth they have.
Cotton Ball Tooth.
This acitivy is both simple and fun! Parents, all you need to do is find a stencil in the shape of the tooth to trace on paper, or, simply look one up online and print it out. Once your child has the outline, provide them with glue, markers and cotton balls to make a fun and fluffy tooth!
Aren’t the best kinds of crafts that ones you can eat at the end? We think so! For this activity, you will need apple slices (lips), peanut butter or any other type of nut butter (gums) , and mini marshmellows (teeth). Have your children assemble their mouth and then eat it when finished!
If you have any questions about your child’s oral health, we encourage you to contact either of our locations in Commack or Medford. We would be more than happy to answer any questions you have or schedule an appointment for you to visit us!
