Basket of Smiles for a Healthy Easter Shelby Barone, Glitterful Felt Stories Every year I have a tradition of where I give my children new toothbrushes, their Grandma gives them swimsuits, and their other Grandma gives them money instead of candy. Walmart has a great selection of Colgate toothbrushes that were perfect for my kiddos Easter baskets this year. Since we have shifted most of our Easter focus on our religion, the kids help participate in creating their Easter egg hunt. They help with shopping, hiding the eggs, and it has become a special bonding experience together as a family.

Easter Basket Ideas Kristyn Merkley, Lil Luna One of my favorite Easter traditions of all is the EASTER BASKET. My children loved their candy and Dora and Sponge Bob Colgate toothbrushes (It’s always nice to have tooth bruhses in there to help with all the candy they will be getting at Easter).

Easter Egg Hunt Linda Gardner, Craftaholics Anonymous Look! He found a Toothbrush! A Spongebob one to be exact. And he loves it. In this household, we take oral hygiene seriously. Very seriously. Yes, it probably has something to do with Davis being a new dentist, but still. Teaching our kids to brush their teeth is important to us. And with candy filled holidays, like Easter, it is so important that kids brush to get the sugar off their teeth to help prevent cavities.

Easter Egg Hunting with Nickelodeon T’oothbrushes! Jennifer Quillen, The Rebel Chick I love hosting our Easter Egg Hunt! I love selecting candy that everyone will like, hiding money in some of the eggs so that the old kids can get really excited about it too – you’d be surprised at how excited a teen boy can get about hunting for Easter Eggs when there’s $1 inside it! I gave them a few toys and some really cute Nickelodeon toothbrushes to brush their teeth after they finished eating their candy!

Spring Cleaning & Organizing in the Kid’s Bathroom Ginger Bowie, Ginger Snap Crafts I came home with these FIVE Colgate toothbrushes.
Did you see the big Easter displays Colgate had up last week?
Our Walmart had already put theirs away, the Colgate kiddos I

but it was still super easy to spot products.
For my younger two purchased the
Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants 
 battery powered toothbrushes. They LOVE them!!!

Colgate Toothbrushes in Easter Baskets Melissa Pezza, The Mommyhood Chronicles For me, buying candy is hard – I am a kids dentist after all. I am the first person who will tell you that buying candy on a regular basis definitely has some negative impacts on your child’s dental health. However, when it comes to holidays, the fact of the matter is it is hard to deny our children of all the massive amounts of candy. I highly suggest making dental care a daily part of your kids life. Be role models for your children so that they have a healthy mouth- make sure they brush twice a day, floss (once their spaces between their teeth close), and use a mouthwash (when they are over the age of 6). Also, on those holidays that children celebrate, why not try to incorporate some fun dental products into their repertoire. I am so proud of Colgate for taking the first step in their huge Colgate Nickelodeon Pallets that are readily seen throughout Walmarts across this country.

An Egg Hunt & Easter Smiles Holly Lefevre, 504 Main

Jules and I decided to plan a special egg treasure hunt for her class. Each kiddo was getting a fun new toothbrush. I am sure we looked crazy cleaning out the Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants toothbrushes...but we were on a mission. There are kids who need clean teeth! It was so fun to share our egg hunt tradition with all of the kids. They had so much fun looking for eggs and they LOVED their new toothbrushes.

Easter Egg Hunt Staci Salazar, 7 on a Shoestring The kids simply love the art of discovery in the yearly Easter Egg Hunt. They know that there is money and candy out there waiting so they are ready to go! Of course, since Monkey is only 2 she does not quite understand. So, after putting the girls to bed one night my husband and I went to Walmart to grab some things for our Easter egg hunt. We would surprise the girls the next day with the activity!

You see those beautiful smiles above? They’re very important to me and I’m so lucky to see them each and every day!  I love to make those faces smile and I love to keep those smiles healthy! Our life has been chaotic lately with this move from the Island to the Woods.  We haven’t had as much fun as we usually do so I decided to have a little pre-Easter Egg Hunt.  Spring is in the air and Easter is just around the corner so it seemed like the right thing to do.

Our Spring Cleaning List Chelsea Day, Someday I’ll Learn We picked up a cute SpongeBob brush by Colgate over at Walmart for Some Boy’s first brushing experience, which he seemed to get quite a kick out of. I occasionally put Spongebob on for him and he seems to like the sea sponge’s quirky, animated antics. He already seems to recognize characters from the DVDs I show him, and I feel like a Spongebob toothbrush makes the process a little less daunting, similar to the way they stick Elmo all over band aids or make gummy vitamins in the shape of the Flintstones.

Candy Free Egg Hunting Ideas for Easter–Our Egg Hunt Whitney Baugh, It’s Gravy Baby Yesterday I mentioned how Bryson loved Easter egg hunting last year and how I look forward to watching both of my babies hunt eggs this year. Today, we had a mini egg hunt- just the kids and I- at home with some fun prizes.  Because their Easter baskets will have candy and because we have candy leftover from who-knows-when (I need to throw it out!), I wanted to go for a candy free egg hunt.  Colgate has some great Nickelodeon character themed oral care products out for Easter and I incorporated those into our hunt.

{Spring Break} Easter Egg Hunt Tonia Larson, The Gunny Sack During my kid’s spring break, we went to visit one of my best friends who lives in South Dakota. It had been way too long since we had made the drive to her house.  We traveled with another one of my best friends and her kids.  We had a wonderful time relaxing, catching up, sitting in the sun and laughing like crazy!  It was the perfect opportunity to have an egg hunt for the kids! The night before we left, I stopped by Walmart to pick up a bunch of egg hunt supplies.  Kids typically get a ton of candy from egg hunts so I added some Colgate Nickelodeon Spongebob Squarepants toothbrushes.  Most kids love getting new toothbrushes and what a great way for them to clean all that sugar off their teeth!

Easter Traditions – Old and New {DIY Easter Carrot Tutorial)} Sarah Bird Bogner, East 9th Street For kids, big and little, Easter has to be celebrated by having an Easter Egg Hunt. This year we’re going a special hunt with my daughter’s closest friends. You see, these little girls (and their moms) have become very close over the last year and now that two of us are moving out-of-state soon, we’re cherishing the moments that we can let them play together. Wanting to do something a little different for the girls, I remembered Party. In the original tutorial the carrots.

a cute craft project I saw at Bird’s long suckers were used to make Instead of using suckers, I used Dora the Explorer toothbrushes I found at Walmart.

Bathroom Spring Cleaning Angie Holden, The Country Chic Cottage I have been all about spring cleaning this year. Some years I skip it all together, sometimes I do it halfway, but this year...it has been on!  I have already shared some of my triumphs with y’all.  After Easter, I decided to tackle another project.  The bathroom is my latest victim.  How about some before and after magic?  Okay it was not magic WHILE I was doing it but it is magic now.

25


Mini Easter Egg Hunt Crystal Owens, A Pumpkin and a Princess I picked up Dora and Spongebob toothbrushes to change things up a bit. I also included matching toothpaste to go along with them. Since they get so much candy from family on Easter I thought it was only appropriate to remind them of the importance of taking care of their teeth. It’s also nice that Dora and Spongebob are some of my kids favorite characters.

Egg-citing Easter Egg Hunt!!!!!! Rachel Rockwell, Bubbly Nature Creations It’s not Easter yet, but who says that you have to wait until Easter to have an egg hunt? My husband and I decided that this year we would plan on having one early!!! We went to Walmart to get all of our supplies. While there, we saw this Easter display for Colgate  toothbrushes and toothpaste for kids. What a great idea to include in our Egg hunt or for an Easter basket! Colgate has cute Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob Squarepants toothbrushes. My girls LOVE Dora. The littlest one can even sing the song! They also have some really great tooth paste varieties for kids too!
