Trick or Treat with America’s ToothFairy!

Welcome the folks from America’s ToothFairy as this week’s guest bloggers

At this time of year when the Halloween candy buckets are about to overflow we need to pay extra attention to those teeth! Make this year memorable and sweet without all the sugar with these fun tips for a healthy Halloween!

  • Give ’em a treat without the sweet! Hand out sugar-free candy, toothbrushes or fun little toys to trick or treaters!
  • Make sure your child has a healthy meal before Halloween festivities to avoid snacking and a sugar overload!
  • If you are hosting a party, use healthy foods to make fun treats that the kids can enjoy. With a little fruit, some paper plates and toothpicks, children can create their own Monster Face. Melonballs or grapes make great monster’s eyeballs, simply spear the melonballs with the toothpicks and poke through the paper plate. For the monster’s nose, spear strawberries or orange slices, and for the monster’s smile, a banana will do just fine!
  • For a healthy smile year round, remember to brush, and floss your teeth twice a day and visit your dentist once every six months! For children ages 6 and up, use a fluoride rinse.

originalDid you know that there are MILLIONS of at-risk kids that can’t sleep at night, eat properly or even concentrate in school because of painful tooth decay? Without the financial resources for dental care or even a toothbrush or toothpaste, these kids find themselves caught in a downward spiral of pain and humiliation, from getting bullied in school to enduring an agonizing toothache on a daily basis.

Trick or Treat with America’s ToothFairy this year and help raise awareness and support for kids whose families can’t afford good dental care. For example just $10 gives a child toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, rinse and oral health education – all the tools they need for a healthy smile. Your donation will go directly to helping children in need, and by making a donation you will be eligible smilemakersjackolanternto enter to win a Halloween Jack-O-Lantern bucket from SmileMakers filled with 144 toys and prizes! Great for trick or treaters or for Halloween parties!

Kids can get involved too and receive fun stickers and a certificate recognizing them as an ‘Official ToothFairy Helper’ by the ToothFairy herself! Click here to download your great Halloween games, a song, and a calendar filled with super spooky fun activities for the entire month!
