Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Roar Into Teeth Brushing Fun!

Higgins loves to suck the toothpaste off of his toothbrush. He does not love it when I actually brush his teeth. In an attempt to make it more fun, I made a dinosaur toothbrush holder. They're supposed to be simple toothbrush holder: you know, to hold the toothbrush after you brush your teeth. However, Higgins had different ideas.

You need:
  • Plastic hollow dinosaur(s). I got mine at the dollar store for $1 each. Amazon also sells them (12 dinosaurs/$9).
  • Craft knife

1. Trace out the size of the toothbrush. Make sure you add a little extra space for
    easy in and outs.

2. Cut out with a craft knife. I cut out the top shape first, and then flipped over to cut
    out the bottom.

3. Make sure the holes are big enough to fit the toothbrush and make any needed
4. Plop the toothbrushes in and enjoy!

I used two dinosaurs so they could fit in the medicine cabinet. However, you could use a large dinosaur and make holes for multiple toothbrushes. If your kids aren't into dinosaurs, you could also use any other hollow plastic animals (cows, lions, horses, etc.).
