Between the ages of 2 to 6, little ones should be introduced to flossing. As tired as we are from the toothbrush tantrums and spit struggles, creativity can go a long way, especially when it comes to a bit of floss.
Encourage your little one to host a PJ soiree, call over a few kids from the neighborhood and organize a fun ceremony for brushing and flossing. Kids will love the new twist to the otherwise boring activity.
Kids love it when there is something fun at the end of a task. So put up a chart and use a sticker after each flossing session. At the end of each week, reward them with a trinket or treat.
Make some hand puppets that represent teeth, food particles and plaque. Put on a puppet show with a story line and music (no matter how ridiculous the lyrics).
