Promote Good Oral health With Elf on the Shelf

Posted By Kristi DeWitt, Delta Dental of AZ, Thursday, November 30, 2017

 

Families across the U.S. have welcomed Elf on the Shelf, Mensch on a Bench or other toys to get their kids to embrace good behavior around the holidays. But the elves and their pals don’t have to limit their lessons to the season – why not use them to promote good oral health habits?

 

Here are a few ways your little helper can keep your child off the naughty list
and on the “Nice Smile” list:

  • Place the elf on the bathroom counter with a toothbrush and a
    reminder to brush for the full two minutes twice a day.
  • Wrap the elf in dental floss and leave a note about flossing daily. Dental
    floss also makes a great elf zip line.
  • Put a tiny cup of mouthwash next to the elf with a reminder to rinse.
  • Have the elf leave a new, fun flavor of toothpaste in the bathroom.
  • Encourage healthy snacking by perching the elf on the edge of the fruit
    bowl. Add googly eyes to the apples and oranges for a fun twist.
  • The elf can also promote nutritious snacks by sitting in the fridge with a
    stick of string cheese or some baby carrots.
  • Have your elf sit on the faucet in the kitchen as a reminder to drink
    more water.

 

Whether you have Elf on the Shelf, Mensch on a Bench or other holiday helpers, have fun figuring out how they can encourage your kids to take care of their smiles. Happy holidays!
