Brush With Elmo
Brush your teeth to the beat with Elmo and friends!
Watch “Brushy Brush” together, in which Elmo sings about how to brush. Encourage children to pretend to brush their teeth as they listen, using their fingers as toothbrushes! Point out that Elmo brushes his teeth every day and every night.
Later, when it’s time for toothbrushing, say, “Elmo is ready to brush his teeth. It’s time for you to brush your teeth, too!” Play the song again (or just sing it) as children brush.
