A great activity to include in your Dental Health unit!
Simple paper plates make a great palette for young children (and make for easy clean-up) and are great for invitations such as this one that use unconventional art tools.
Squirt the desired amount of each color of chosen paint on the palette.
Your preschooler can brainstorm a design ahead of time or just experiment with the tool! Encourage your preschooler to experiment with the toothbrush; notice how the toothbrush creates different textures on the paper than a regular brush.
Display with Pride
Whether your child chose to create a specific design or simply experiment with the textures and designs created from the tool you are sure to end up with something display worthy. Displaying these creations is a wonderful way for children to recall the experience and brainstorm new ways to create!
