Play a game of “Guess the Food” where you show pictures of different kinds of food and your students have to guess whether it’s good or bad for their teeth. This will not only teach them about healthy eating habits but also about the effects of certain foods on their teeth.

Arts and Crafts

Create a “Tooth Fairy” craft activity where your kindergarteners can make their own tooth fairy using paper, glitter, and other craft materials. This will not only spark their creativity but also reinforce the importance of taking care of their teeth.


Add Dental Health Tooth Subtraction Boom™ and Dental Health Tooth Addition Boom™ to your computer station for Dental themed math practice.


Conduct science experiments to help your little learners understand the importance of dental health. For example, you can demonstrate the effects of sugary drinks on teeth by placing a hard-boiled egg in a glass of soda overnight.


End the month with a dental health-themed party. You can serve healthy snacks like fruits and veggies, play dental health games, and even have a “Tooth Fairy” visit to give out toothbrushes and other dental goodies.

By incorporating these activities into your curriculum, you can make dental health fun and engaging for your kindergarteners. Not only will they learn valuable academic skills, but they’ll also develop healthy habits that will benefit them for years to come.
