You will need:

  • Hard boiled egg
  • A bowl
  • Pepsi or Coca Cola

Method:

Have your child soak the hard boiled egg in a bowl filled with soda. Let it soak overnight. Next day ask your child to observe the colour of the egg which has changed now. Explain to the child that the enamel of our teeth is similar to the shell of an egg. Not brushing our teeth regularly will result in yellowing of our teeth as well. Make your child hold the egg and brush it with the help of toothpaste and observe the outcome.

6. Toothfairy Certificate
