Good oral hygiene is vital for a child's overall health, and brushing their teeth plays a significant role in maintaining it. There are various aspects involved in brushing teeth, each of them crucial to the process and the value it brings.
One part of brushing that's especially important for effective brushing is the time spent doing it. As you probably already know, it's recommended that children (and adults) brush for a full two minutes each time. However, brushing for that long can be challenging, and especially for kids!
Luckily, there are ways to ensure a full two minutes of brushing without it feeling like an eternity. Instead of relying on a boring kitchen timer, there are exciting options available to make brushing time enjoyable. Let's explore some of these creative ideas and the pros of each!
A Two Minute Button Timer
A simple yet effective way to keep track of brushing time is by using a physical timer, such as a push button timer. For children, a regular timer won't cut it. Let's be honest, staring at sand for two minutes isn't exactly thrilling!
To make brushing time more engaging, we recommend trying something like our Toothbrush Toys Two Minute Timer. It lights up and plays music, creating a fun environment throughout the two minutes of brushing. With something enjoyable to listen to, kids are less likely to get bored and more likely to complete their brushing routine.
A Two Minute Animated Story
For an even more effective option, consider letting children watch a two minute video while brushing their teeth. We all know how captivating screens can be, whether it's kids and their iPads or millennials engrossed in TikTok. So why not use that to our advantage when it comes to teeth brushing?
Toothbrush Toys offers Two Minute Animated Stories that feature each Toothbrush Toy character. Not only does the toothbrush come to life, but kids can also enjoy an engaging story while brushing. Before they know it, the two minutes are up, and their teeth are sparkly clean!
A Two Minute Storybook
If you prefer to limit screen time, especially before bedtime, a storybook can be a fantastic alternative to animated videos. By reading your child a story while they brush, you can keep them entertained and interested throughout the process. And even better, Toothbrush Toys offers storybooks for each Toothbrush Toy character, allowing your child to brush while reading a story about their favorite brush! Each book is designed to last two minutes, making it the perfect brushing companion.
Remember, regardless of the tool you choose for your little ones, ensuring a full two minutes of brushing is crucial for developing good dental hygiene habits and maintaining their overall health. Along with the duration, it's essential to make brushing a fun and unique experience while using an effective toothbrush.
