Brushing your teeth twice a daily is something most adults without thinking but for children it can be a hard habit to form.
How do you make it fun for them and teach them a habit?
“There is a app for that”
Yes, there is an app for most things and there are some made just for kids brushing their teeth.
Here are a few free apps that can help your kids brush for the full 2 minutes and make it fun.
If your child is a music lover then they will love this app which plays 2 minutes of music from your phone or tablet to encourage proper brushing. Make a playlist of your kid’s favorite songs and he or she will love to jam out to the music while brushing. This app also will remind your child about dentist appointments and replacing their toothbrush. It will teach your child how to reach every tooth when brushing through kid-friendly videos and a brushing timer.
