My kids absolutely HATE the dentist, so I am always looking for ways to make dental visits more fun. Whether it's singing silly songs, brushing their dollies' teeth, or reading storybooks about the dentist, we try and show our little ones that good oral health is important and nothing to be afraid of. (Which is hard, since I have a huge phobia regarding dentists! Of course I'd never admit that to the kiddos!)
Starting January 21, the awesome folks at Tom's of Maine have teamed up with OHA to offer kids a way to express their creativity, learn about oral health, and even help those in need. How cool is that?!
On January 21, Tom’s of Maine announced a free coloring and activity book called “Brushing Fun,” which supports Oral Health America, a national nonprofit dedicated to oral care and prevention. With each free coloring book download, Tom’s of Maine will donate 10 tubes of its Wicked Cool! natural toothpaste (up to 200,000 tubes) to children in OHA’s Smiles Across America program. Now I think that is wicked awesome, don't you agree?
This coloring book is 8 pages, and offers fun activities like mazes, a word-search, and even pages where kids find hidden items while they color. You can even personalize this coloring book with your child's name so they're the star of the story! How cool is that?!
Official Rules available here .
