Teeth Brushing Chart for Kids

Do you have any great ideas for getting your kids to brush their teeth?  Without constant nagging and reminding?  I’m hoping these new vinyl teeth brushing charts are going to help!

I used my Silhouette to make vinyl charts for Luke, Lila, and Tate.  I bought a calendar template from the online store and ungrouped it, removed the bottom two rows of the calendar, and added their names and the first letter of each day of the week.

I used transfer paper to stick the charts onto the bathroom mirror and attached dry erase markers {with velcro} next to each chart.

The kids brush their teeth …

… and then check the proper box {the top box is for the morning brush and the bottom box is for the evening brush}.  Each week I’ll wipe away the checkmarks and we’ll start fresh.

Luke has his own chart in navy on his bathroom mirror.  {His weekday letters look a little wacky here but it’s just an angle issue … it’s hard to photograph a mirror without appearing in it!}

I’m hoping the new charts will inspire some accountability and some very shiny teeth!
How do you make sure your kids brush every day?

Note:  I’m no longer selling these but just sharing it as a DIY project.

  1. Smart idea! Our kids have chore packs that they do everyday and you can bet brushing your chompers is on there twice!

  2. This is the best idea ever!!!!

  3. This is fantastic idea! Despite having tooth brushing on the chore charts, many evenings we get rushed and forget {hangs head in shame} to have our kids brush their teeth! This would serve as a much more visual reminder to us and them since it is in the bathroom.

  4. I think you could sell these… I am serious!

  5. I’d buy one…how much? x

  6. Super cute!!

  7. I want to buy 3! Please e-mail me at starsingr4 at yahoo dot com! Thanks! :)

  8. So darn cute. I think I need this…even for my 11 year old still! UGH!

  9. Could you share which calendar you used? I searched the on-line store and couldn’t find one with the days of the weeks on it? Thanks.

  10. I want to buy three!! Helenarguello@yahoo.com

  11. Found you on Pinterest and I’m hooked :) Love this idea!! Hoping it’s not too late to get my 12 year old son to be a more consistent brusher (I might be pushing my luck).

  12. This is why I LOVE having a Silhouette Cameo!!! Off to make mine now…

  13. I would totally buy one ($20 is still cheaper than buying a Silhouette machine and trying to figure out how to use it…)! This is such an awesome idea!

  14. I would like to buy one also anne.froistad at target dot com.

  15. What a great idea, I just reblogged this on my Momasaurus dot com
    Thanks!

  16. This is a great idea! If you turn your pens upside down, they will actually write better and last longer.

  17. Why can I not find the calendar template in the online store?? :)

  18. Thank you so much for the tooth brushing chart! It’s awesome! I blogged about it here:http://rimor-vita.blogspot.com/2013/06/tooth-brushing-chart.html

  20. I would also be interested in buying one. I just got a cameo but am total newbie & think this might be a bit above my skill set, lol. Tdmarshall1811@gmail.com
    Thanks for sharing!

  21. Are you selling these? Would love two. One for Nora and one for Maren. Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks.

  22. Great idea! We are going to make one for our boys.

  23. Love,this! I bought a calendar template in the online store, have I grouped it, but can’t figure out how to delete the rows. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

      It will depend a bit on what your calendar looks like. Mine had separate boxes for each day so I was able to ungroup and delete the boxes. If you want to email a screenshot of your calendar to me {randi@dukesandduchesses.com}, I can take a look at it and tell you how to do it.

    I just bought a new calendar! Lol…I’m so new to all this! One question…how did you get the added row with the days of the week in it? Again…I’m a newbie! Thank you!
