Creative Ways to Encourage Kids’ Hygiene

Creative Ways to Encourage Kids’ Hygiene

Teach kids to practice good hygiene by making it fun! Create tututooth brushes and a discovery soap dispenser to encourage kids to brush their teeth, wash their hands, and develop healthy hygiene habits.

Tutu Tulle Toothbrushes Kids’ Craft

Do your kids resist brushing their teeth? These toothbrush tutus are an easy way to make tooth brushing fun and decorate your girls’ toothbrushes so you can tell them apart if they happen to choose the same hello kitty light-up tooth brush. We made these cute toothbrush tulle skirts in just minutes with a strip of tulle and a hot glue gun.

Toothbrush Tulle Skirts


Strips of tulle
Hot glue gun

Fold an 8″ x 4″ strip of tulle in half lengthwise and stitch a piece of thread along the folded edge. Tug on the two ends of the thread to gather the tulle along the thread. Hot glue the gathered tulle around the toothbrush handle. Also glue the ends of the tulle tutu together to form a skirt. Glue on a short piece of trim to cover the seam edge.

Tulle can be washed off and hot glue is waterproof so these cute toothbrush tulle skirts will last a long time!

Glamour Soap Dispenser

Make hand washing fun with this cute glitterized soap dispenser idea. Kids will love getting their own soap to wash their hands, especially when they can discover hidden treasures floating in the soap. You can refill this soap dispenser over and over, saving money and ensuring your kids’ soap is free of harmful chemicals by only buying the good stuff.

Simply fill a soap dispenser with clear liquid soap and add barbie shoes, small jewels and tiny acrylic flowers. To create an interactive discovery soap dispenser for boys just add legos!

These are great ideas!!!! Who wouldn’t want a tooth brush with a tu tu?! You could probably sell those!


I seriously love these ideas, especially the toothbrush tutu its super cute!!! I’m going to have to do that for my daughter


This is such a brilliant article. I love every single one of the ideas.

My son is busy with dental hygiene week with the day care so the toothbrush skirt is a great suggestion for all the little ladies in his class. My littlest would also love to have a sparkly skirt on her toothbrush.

Really really great ideas! Thank you! I’m going to try share this.
