Kid Art: Painting With Toothbrushes

February is dental health month. Last week we had a great dental health week at preschool. One of the children's favorite activities was by far Painting with Toothbrushes.


I cut out a large tooth shape from card stock for the children to paint on. I also supplied toothbrushes and various colored paints. Then, I just let them go for it. 


The children had fun brushing the paint on, flicking it on and glopping it down. This art activity was definitely not about the end product (though they turned out really cool!). It was all about the process and exploring an unusual painting tool. 


One word of caution when doing with young children - be sure to tell them NOT to put the toothbrushes into their mouth. I mentioned this many times with my 3 year olds and still had 2 of them try to go for it. This is definitely best as a supervised activity - just in case.


Have fun painting with toothbrushes!

  17. This article is really very interesting and informative article. I have really very enjoyed to reading it. Thanks to you for sharing this article with us. Do you know that to achieve a healthy work-family balance, teachers offer the solutions: Use of calendar and computer. The agenda helps you to plan your time better. Use different colors depending on the areas of your life (school, family, staff). The computer also helps you to save time and avoid certain trips (bank transactions, contacts with teachers, and with parents of students, course preparations). Take advantage of short breaks to divide your tasks into small parts. Take advantage of every minute and free time before the arrival of your students to prepare your lessons and make corrections. Learn to delegate, and do like a good entrepreneur. The guts(.)pk/shop/category/art-supplies/ says start delegating household chores to your kids, and even in your classroom with your students. This develops their autonomy.
