Maybe it’s a boy thing, but my son hates to brush his teeth. Bedtime is especially tough because we’re on a tight schedule. 30 minutes before it’s time to head to bed we send him to brush his teeth. He comes out of his bathroom 10 to 15 minutes later and we ask, “Did you brush your teeth?” He turns around and goes back. This is an every night occurrence.
We’re constantly buying new toothbrushes because his mysteriously disappear. I’ve found toothbrushes in the trash, under the counter, in the shower and most recently in the toilet. When I ask him why it’s such a problem to brush his teeth he lets me know it’s boring. I get that, I really do. But oral hygiene isn’t really about fun and games. Well, at least not until now!
Stumped for a solution to our teeth brushing issue we headed up to Walmart to see if the Colgate Holiday Packs could help us. What we found was a great selection of Nickelodeon& other themed Colgate Holiday Packs designed to bring holiday smiles. Not only were there Dora and Spongebob packs, but there was also a Transformers Colgate Holiday Pack and more. I thought these would be perfect for us. I’ve had several toothaches in my life and wouldn’t wish that pain on anyone, let alone my son. This was my chance to communicate the importance of good oral hygiene and encourage him to want to brush his teeth.
Colgate is our regular brand of toothpaste so I felt very confident shopping for these. Since Spongebob is one of my sons favorite characters I thought it would be a great way to encourage him to brush his teeth. After all how could anything be boring when Spongebob is involved?! As soon as I saw the gift pack I had tons of gift ideas flooding in. I think the Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants Colgate Holiday Packs will make excellent stocking stuffers. In fact, I’ve decided to center my sons entire stocking around Spongebob and other items to bring about holiday smiles.
I found a few items to compliment the Spongebob Colgate Holiday Pack, like a package of Krabby Patty candies! I also picked up a mixed bag of Nestle’s candy to put in the stocking. Yes, that’s how confident I am that my son will actually be brushing his teeth now. Of course there will be more in the stocking besides the Colgate Holiday Pack and candy. I’m leaning towards a movie and maybe a game; one or both Spongebob themed.
Can you imagine the holiday smiles this year when kids get a stocking filled with goodies and their favorite character in a Colgate Holiday Pack? I know it’s going to be a bright holiday full of smiles for us. To see my trip to find the perfect stocking stuffers check out my Google+ Album.
