giant toothbrushes.

This idea may have originally came from Mailbox magazine but I'm not positive because it came to me from a teammate.  {Thanks Leslie!!}  It's a great craft to display what you've learned about teeth and you don't have to print, cut out or laminate anything!  :)  With sentence strips, crayons, strips of copy paper and a glue stick, you too can have your very own...

Ginormous toothbrush!!!

Don't mind the one who decided to glue before the directions were given out...  ;)

Seriously great, right?!  And so so easy.  Write dental health facts on the "bristles" then decorate the "handle" and glue the writing to the top.  Ta-da!  Simplicity.  You can print or cut out little toothpaste swirls for your student names for a little more flair.

Happy brushing!  Don't forget to floss!  {well, at least like twice a year before you go see your dentist...}


  1. Too cute!! We have been learning about Dental Health too! I just posted about it too!! Stephanie

  2. I absolutely love these!! Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Love this bulletin board! And the one that didn't follow directions is cracking me up - we all have one in our class!

  4. Kristin: My reader described the new background on your blog, with all the photos of shoes, and it really fits you! Also, I really like the toothbrush idea. I very rarely see any fun teaching ideas for health, even though we're required to teach it, so it was really nice to see this post.

    I just put up a new post about cupcakes on my blog, with lots of freebies. Something is telling me that you'll like them. :)

    Have a wonderful Valentine's week!
