Teach a child to brush their teeth

At ages 8 and 4, they both tend to cringe at doing anything that doesn’t involve food, games, or wildness. Anytime I would say, “C’mon, get in the shower, it’s almost bedtime” and “Don’t forget to brush your teeth before bed!“, it incited the worst moans, groans, and eye rolls: How DARE I ask them to do things that are good for their health?

Encouraging your kids to brush

Here’s how these light-up toothbrushes work. Firefly® toothbrushes light up and time the child brushing their teeth for 60 seconds. When the light goes out, they know they’re finished brushing!

There are lots of different Firefly® toothbrush designs available, but these red Darth Vader and blue Obiwan lightsabers are my kids’ absolute favorites! You can hear their actual voices and sounds from the Star Wars® franchise, keeping them entertained while they do something that is an important daily habit to maintain.
