For this project, we decided to head to Walmart to find some affordable dental care products to purchase for underprivileged kids. CFK likes to challenge people to “Buy 2, Give 1.” I love this idea because it’s so easy for everyone to help the community, and even just buying one item to contribute can help. Just think if everyone did that how much of an impact it would make? The dental section at Walmart is fairly large. We found some cool Arm & Hammer Kids’ Spinbrush My Way toothbrushes, which are electric toothbrushes for kids that can be decorated to make as their own. We were going to Buy 2, Give 1, but then we decided to Buy 2, Give 2 instead. Both my daughter and son want to help and make a dental pack to share with kids in need. Kendal is going to make a girls’ pack, and Drew will make a boys’ dental care pack. We picked out some toothpaste, mouthwash, and flossers to go in our dental care packs with the Spinbrushes. And for $5.72 a piece for an electric toothbrush, that’s a great deal! The travel section is also a great place to look for affordable items as well!
After we got home from Walmart the kids decorated their Spinbrushes which they were super excited to do! I love how the Arm & Hammer Kids’ Spinbrush My Way Toothbrushes has kids personalize them and make them their own. Now my kids are so proud of their toothbrushes and want to use them even more! It’s so cute how decorating the toothbrushes brings such pride and ownership to their dental care products. Anything to get kids more interested in taking care of their teeth is a plus for me!
