Creating #EasterSmiles with Colgate!

This year, since Shane is finally old enough to get excited about the Easter Bunny’s visit, we’re going all-out for Easter. So when I got the chance to set up a BONUS egg hunt? I “hopped” {sorry, couldn’t help myself} on that for sure!

Our “trial” egg hunt included lots of toy dinosaurs & a few other cute items, but the main event items were the Colgate Dora the Explorer toothbrushes & toothpaste! Shane used to love brushing his teeth, but lately it’s become a bit of a battle. I know that incorporating characters he loves helps him get more excited about it, so I thought it was worth a shot!

We headed to Walmart & picked up a set of Dora items for him. As a bonus, the toothbrush was even green- his favorite color!

I also picked up some “fun” items to put in the eggs.

The eggs I got ended up being too small though so I just hid the items behind the eggs. He’s 2 & a half- he didn’t mind.

Shane loved finding the eggs & once he found his toothbrush, he didn’t waste a second before using it!

I’m proud to say that so far, we haven’t had any toothbrush battles since we did our egg hunt. He actually lets me sit him on the counter and help him brush his teeth without any fussing, which has been a huge relief! I think the combination of using Dora to get him excited and also him having to find it in an egg hunt made him really excited to be able to use it. So, if you’re struggling to get your toddler to let you brush their teeth I’d recommend a similar approach!
