Silly Brushing Song (Brush ‘Em Up!) by Laurie Berkner
I love Laurie’s philosophy behind this song: “I wished I had something that made the whole two minutes of brushing a truly fun experience. One of my favorite things about the song is that parents don’t have to wait until their kids are right in front of the sink to press play. Instead, the lyrics serve as a jumpstart to get the process started – getting our toothbrush and toothpaste out and ready.”
Happy Tooth Day by VeggieTales
These next two are just for fun. Larry the Cucumber from VeggieTales sings and celebrates his (single) tooth and dreams of having a whole mouth full.

Even my “big kids” (1st and 2nd grade) get a kick out of this song! Do your kids know that different foods in particular can give you bad breath? Then after brushing, the problem is solved! Watch out – this one gets stuck in your head!
