Submitted by: Christa from Preschool Education

Need: Felt, hole punch, scissors, plastic bag, yarn, and yarn needle.

Directions: Make 2 Tooth shapes out of felt. Line them up. Then take the hole punch and make holes around the outside of the teeth. Now take a piece of yarn and tread it through a yarn needle. Tie a know at on end. Start at the top, right, center of the tooth. Lace al the way around the tooth. Now just before you are at the end place a small plastic bag inside the tooth. Then lace the rest of the way and tie it shut with a bow.


Masks added 10-1-00 Original Author Unknown

Need: paper towel, yarn

Directions: Make surgical masks like the dentists wear by using thick paper towels and fold into thirds lengthwise.  Poke holes into the middle of both ends.  Attach yarn and tie.  The children can wear these and pretend to be dentists and look into each others mouths. 


Teeth added 2-10-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: paper plate, mirrors, red paper, mini-marshmallows, glue

Directions: Have your students fold a small paper plate in half.  This is a mouth they
can open and close with their hand like a puppet.  Using mirrors, have the children inspect their teeth and glue in mini-marshmallows where they have teeth.  Glue on a red tongue to the lower half.  These are especially sweet when someone has lost a tooth and leaves an empty space. 


Toothpaste Paint added 2-10-01 Original Author Unknown

Need: Toothpaste, paint, paper

Directions: Add toothpaste to the paint for an added sensory treat.
