How to get your kids to brush their teeth

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?
Help – my kids hate brushing their teeth!
You can learn how to make brushing teeth fun for kids. I’ve learned that forcing kids to brush never works, especially with my stubborn 4-year-old. The trick – entertaining light-up toothbrushes – Star Wars style!
Do kids like brushing their teeth? Not really. But the key here is to make it fun and exciting, to make them WANT to participate and kinda start to like it. Firefly® toothbrushes did just the trick! Check out these Star Wars® light saber toothbrushes, how cool are these?
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.
