Stuffed teeth

Coming soon to a classroom near you...maybe. Probably not very likely, but it would be kind of amazing if they did. I made up these super cute teeth by altering a pattern from the Softies book. Each one has a happy face on one side and a sad face on the other.

My sister, who I visited over the weekend, is in dental school. She's required to do community outreach as part of her training, but just happened to mention to me that the entire dental school has approximately four props to use as teaching aides!

I sent her a picture message of the images inside the Softies book and she developed a really cute teaching idea for young kids. Food flash cards and these teeth. Just a super simple "Is this a happy tooth food? Or a sad tooth food?" with plush visuals to really get the message out to Kindergartners. I can't wait to hear how this goes over! I know that my own four year old has really been into watching them come together!
