Let's Floss


Obtain a gallon (or larger) plastic milk carton. Leave the cap on and glue any type of yarn around the top of the bottle for hair. Then use a marker to draw big silly eyes on the milk carton. Cut a big smile out of the carton. At the bottom of the smile (lower lip), make slits, one next to the other, with your scissors. Give children long pieces real dental floss and invite them to floss the between the slits or teeth.
