Make-Believe Dentist

Materials

  • Cup with water
  • Bowl for spitting
  • Paper napkin
  • Flashlight
  • Toothbrush
  • Small toys for "prizes"

Directions

  1. Because water is involved, this game is best played in the kitchen or bathroom.
  2. Take turns being the dentist and patient.
  3. The dentist tucks a paper napkin into the patient's collar to protect his shirt, then uses the flashlight to look into his mouth.
  4. The dentist may want to brush the patient?s teeth, then advise him to rinse his mouth and spit into the bowl.
  5. As the patient leaves, the dentist can offer him a "prize."
