It’s National Smile Month. Preschool have been learning all about healthy smiles with lots of fun activities including a smile hunt in the garden, making playdough smiles and adding teeth, practicing cleaning dirty teeth on laminate mouths, talking about mouth hygiene and sharing how we keep our teeth clean at home. We’ve also enjoyed dancing to lots of songs about smiling!
