Try this song for encouraging your children to brush their teeth!!

Brush Your Teeth” (Use the Melody of “Jingle Bells” to Sing Along)

Brush your teeth,

Brush your teeth,

Give your teeth a treat.

Brush up and down and all around,

To keep them clean and neat!

Brush them once,

Brush them twice,

Brush three times a day.

Brush up and down and all around,

Keep cavities away!

Suitable for KS1

 

Cup rhythms – Encourage your child to use their favourite piece of music and create their own rhythms using taps, clap, bangs etc. You could record it and send it to a friend for them to copy.
