Healthy mouth healthy me expo

It is planned to be a fun day for all with the following activities assigned for children:

·         Tooth fairy Marquee/ castle – where the tooth fairy will do story readings from her magnificent throne.

·         Plaque Cave – a fun cave for children (and adults if they wish) to see how well they are brushing their teeth in our “scary but fun” plaque cave.  With Dr Plaque Away to guide them through.

·         Colgate Dr Rabbit and the Giant Tooth will be there for photos with kids and general fun.

·         Ms Susan Fleming (Granite Belt dental) will be there to read her published book “why do dentists wear masks?” to get the younger children used to why we look funny when they come to see us.

·         Craft activities – the kids can make all sorts of crafty things to take home.  Also they will be able to colour in our Healthy Mouth Healthy Me colour in.

·         Face painting and temporary tattoos

·         Guess what’s in the Jar – where we have placed a number of toothbrushes and other items for people to guess exactly how much we have in the jar.  At the end of the day we will award prizes (we will take names and what school the child attends so that we can make sure they receive their prize)

·         Balloon art – we have been practicing making balloon animals

·         Germ Busters – interactive “hand hygiene” to show kids how important it is to clean your hands.

·         Healthy lunch box -  we will have staff demonstrating ideas for the Lunch box. We have also designed a “Healthy Mouth Healthy Me” cookbook to give away.

·         Crazy “what the…” dental experiments
