Sponge Some Teeth

I am subbing in the Pre-K classes this week along with my doing my own class. I'll probably be mush by the weekend. I must say I had fun though. It's always fun to do some different activities and be able to take things to the next level.

Today, both Pre-K classes were doing pretty much the same craft, each just had their own little twist. They are focusing on dental health this week as I am--makes it easier for me.

The teachers were each sponge painting to make teeth. One teacher had a large mouth shape cut out of pink construction paper. The children colored the lips with a red marker, we then had little sponges attached to clothespins, the children dipped them in white paint and made teeth.

The other teachers was very similar, but she had red lips cut out of construction paper, a pink center. The pink center was glued inside the lips then the children did the sponge painting. They also made a little toothbrush to go with their mouth.
