The Very Best Toothbrushing Songs for Kids

My kids find brushing their teeth to be totally exciting for all of about 17.5 seconds. Not good, especially when they ought to brushing for at least 2-3 minutes. While I’ve tried everything from timers (not so fun), to vibrating/flashing toothbrushes (slightly funner), they still have trouble brushing the recommended period of time.

If there’s one thing I can count on to motivate my kids, it’s music. Check out the very best toothbrushing songs designed to encourage your kids to brush longer and have more fun while doing it – after the jump!
