So I was reading a magazine and came across a section of cool activities for the family, involving experiments with your teeth. This one seemed to be pretty cool not only for adults but especially for children that are having a hard time understanding why brushing and rinsing is so important.
This experiment will demonstrate the importance of brushing your teeth to avoid plaque buildup.
What you’ll need: food coloring, water, measuring spoons, tooth brush and toothpaste
- Mix 3 to 4 drops of your choice of food coloring in a few tablespoons of water
- Have your child swish around in their mouth for 10 seconds then spit it out
- Show your child were the food coloring stuck to their teeth indicating that there is plaque buildup in that area.
