It can be really hard getting your kids to brush their teeth, let alone get them to be excited about brushing. It can also be difficult to explain to them why brushing and healthy snacks are important. Lets be honest-kids often just want to eat the toothpaste, not clean their teeth!
So to help you along your way we have made a list of some super fun apps that your kids will love and will get them in the mood to brush their teeth every day! Put them on your ipad or your smart phone and have some fun!

DISNEY MAGIC TIMER

This is my favourite kids brushing app, and it was the #1 downloaded app for kids aged 6-8 in over 40 countries. Your kids get to be a Disney, marvel or star wars characters, as they brush to reveal a new Disney image each time. These images are collected in Disney, marvel and star wars sticker books for extra incentive to brush.
This app is pretty basic but it’s effective. It is the most thorough kids brushing app I have seen and it is proven to improve children’s brushing technique. It goes through how to brush each tooth by holding the brush the right way during a catchy 2 minute song.

This basic but effective app is great for the older kids as it plays music from your itunes library for 2 minutes while you brush.
Happy brushing kiddies!!
