The Organization America’s Tooth Fairy will be leading the children in some special activities from 12:30-2:00pm in Orange Plaza and our very own Pretendgineers will be facilitating the following activities throughout the day.
- Sensational Story Time: Arthur Tricks the Tooth Fairy by Marc Brown-D.W. is jealous when Arthur loses a tooth and gets a visit from the Tooth Fairy. What will D.W. do?
- Math Matters: Can you count your teeth? Join us in the Health Center/Dental Office as we talk about teeth and how many teeth we have in our mouths.
- Simple Science: Why is it important to brush your teeth and how often should you brush them? Join us in the Health Center/Dental Office as we talk about the importance of dental hygiene and how to keep a healthy smile.
Pretend City will be accepting donations of oral care products for the Smile Drive from February 19th-February 28th. The donation box can be found at the front desk.
All donations will benefit at-risk children and teens in Orange County.
Play Partner: America’s Tooth Fairy, Pretendgineers and Brain Builders, our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators, and grown-ups.
Grown-up Tip: Encourage your child to use their imagination and draw a picture of what they think the Tooth Fairy might look like than have your child write a note to the tooth fairy and place it under their pillow with the tooth. Any opportunity to practice your child’s writing skills is a good opportunity and if the subject is one that they are excited about, then chances are they will write much more than you ask them to.
