Want a quick and easy sensory activity during a dentist/tooth unit or really any time of year? Just fill the bottom of your sensory table with water and add fruits or vegetables and toothbrushes! We taught the kids the proper motion in which to brush their teeth today and then had them try their technique on the fruits and vegetables. Apples, oranges, cucumbers, peppers - really any fruit or vegetable with a thick skin works great! If you're really feeling daring you can give them tubes of toothpaste too! Just depends on how messy you want them to get! This activity reinforces good dental hygiene as well as healthy eating habits. Most of all - it's super fun!
