Materials Needed: Toothbrush
Invite your child into the bathroom with you. Demonstrate how you get ready for bed/wake up in the morning by brushing your teeth. Talk to your child about the steps, putting the toothpaste on, brushing the top teeth, bottom teeth, back part of the mouth, tongue, etc. Offer them their own tooth brush and invite them to brush their teeth with you. There’s no right or wrong way at this point, allow them to explore their own way.
