Teach your child how brushing your teeth keeps surfaces clean.
What You Need:
- Hardboiled egg with white shell
- A glass
- Can of cola or dark soda
- Ladle or spoon
- Brown colored crayon
What To Do:
- Together with your child, carefully place a hardboiled egg into the glass.
- Pour the cola into the glass, making sure that the egg is fully submerged. Leave it overnight.
- The next day, have your child take the egg out of the glass with a ladle or spoon. Talk about what she sees. Ask her, “What happened?” “Why do you think it turned this color?”
- Provide your child with toothpaste and a toothbrush. Have your child brush the brown egg. Give direction on how to brush to get the egg shell white again. Explain to your child how the egg represents a tooth. Ask her, “What might happen if you do not brush your teeth?”
