My boys can give me a hard time about brushing- before bed is always the hardest part of our bedtime routine. They just love to drag their feet! Boys will be boys, sometimes they just need a little encouragement. We have used timers, I’ve sang the ABC song while they brush (for time’s sake), we have had toothbrushes that play music- you know, as a mom, you try it all. Why not give technology a try? In moderation, of course. Now there is a fun, free app for kids to help get them into the swing of things, and get them excited about brushing.
Half a billion school kids around the world have benefited from the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® oral health education program (http://www.colgatebsbf.com). Now, this award-winning program is offering an educational app: “My Bright Smile.” Included are five games, including “Visit the Dentist,” “Swipe the Sweets” and “Brush the Teeth.” There’s even a two-minute song that will help keep your kids brushing until every tooth is clean.
“My Bright Smile” is available for free on the Apple App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-bright-smile/id959018956?mt=8) and the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.colgate.mybrightsmile). The app includes five games, including “Visit the Dentist,” “Swipe the Sweets” and “Brush the Teeth.” There’s even a two-minute song that will help keep your kids brushing until every tooth is cleaned.
