Monster Teeth Brushing
This Monster Teeth Brushing craft is part of a sponsored post.
The fall and Halloween season is my absolute favorite time of year. The colors are changing, the weather is more my speed, and the little monsters get to dress up for candy. However, with all those trick or treats, even monsters need to make sure their teeth are properly brushed. Good thing we can practice ahead of time, and all year long, with our Monster Teeth Brushing Craft!
A good oral hygiene routine is so important for all monsters, big and small. The right toothbrush, brushing after meals, daily flossing, and making sure to visit a professional like Frank Roach Dentist for cleanings and any cavity fillings are all great ways to make sure our chompers are bright and white and ready to roar.
Our monsters in this fun monster teeth brushing activity have some candy stuck to their teeth and need help brushing the grime away. It is Halloween, after all, and monsters like candy, too. For more fun monsters, be sure to check out our Monster Bookmarks, Paint Splatter Monster Puppets, Fork Painted Monsters, and our Craft Stick Monsters.
Simply make your monster with a big open mouth, slide the monster inside a gallon sized plastic baggie, draw some plaque around their mouth with a black washable marker, and brush away with circular strokes. Such a fun way to learn the proper way to brush!
For our Monster Teeth Brushing Craft you will need cardstock in assorted colors as well as white and red, gallon sized plastic baggies, a black sharpie, a black washable marker, scissors, a glue stick, and a toothbrush.
Brush the Monster Teeth
- Cardstock – white, red, assorted colors
- Gallon sized plastic baggies
- Black sharpie
- Black washable marker
- Glue stick
Begin by cutting a sheet of cardstock roughly to the size of the plastic baggie.
You can make spiky hair for the monster, too, if you’d like.
Now use the black sharpie to draw a thick line for the mouth. Make sure it’s a fairly large mouth, because you want to make sure there’s room for teeth to brush.
Insert scissors into the center of the mouth and cut out inside the black line.
Now cut some teeth from the white paper. Any kind of teeth. Jagged teeth, pointy teeth, rectangular teeth.
Glue the teeth to the back of the monster.
And glue a red card of cardstock over the teeth to both further secure and complete the mouth.
Then, draw eyes with the black sharpie on the white paper. I say eyes, but you can also just use one large eye. Or make 3 eyes. They’re monsters. It’s up to you.
Cut out the eye(s) and glue in place.
Insert the completed monster into the baggie. You can use a small piece of tape on back of the monster to keep in place inside the baggie if it moves around too much. Draw some plaque and build up and leftover ick between the monster’s teeth with a black washable marker.
And brush away with a slightly damp toothbrush. Nice and clean again!
We absolutely adore this activity! It’s a great way to learn the proper brushing technique, but also just fun for those who already know, too. We have lots more where that came from, too! Be sure to check out all of our Halloween crafts for kids at Our Kid Things!
