Join us we celebrate our 3rd Annual Dental Health Month! Area dentists will visit the museum to answer your questions about oral health, educators will have a variety of fun programs and NEW this year, free oral health screenings will be conducted by local Dental Community Centers. Every child who visits during February will go home with their own toothbrush thanks to our Toothbrush Sponsor, Great Outdoors Pediatric Dentistry!
These are the special activities we will be exploring at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire during the month of February! We’ll have a different Dental Health Month drop-in program every day—call ahead to see what's going on the day of your visit!
Do owls have teeth? How do they eat their food? Find out and also get a close look at the teeth of some of the rodents who became the owl’s lunch!
Enjoy storytime with museum staff all about teeth!
We’ll take a close look at our goblin shark and beaver skull. We’ll try to figure out how they’re different and how their teeth help them eat!
A favorite experiment at the museum, what ingredients can we mix together to make a fun, bubbly, foamy and exciting toothpaste mess!?
Enjoy watching this bubbly, foamy, messy experiment demo and learn about the plaque attack that could happen in your mouth—and the importance of good tooth brushing!
Make a Tooth fairy Pouch:
Decorate a felt tooth fairy pouch to keep your teeth safe until she picks them up!
Make Animal Teeth:
Learn about different types of animal teeth and then craft your own using paper cups! Will you be a herbivore or a carnivore?!
