My 1st Mommy Party ~ Winnie the Pooh & Oral-B Stages

by Carrie Wells, Ed.D.
I was so excited to host the Oral-B Stages MommyParties event at my house! We scheduled it for Monday, November 28th from 6 - 8 pm. It was a pajama party, so the children came dressed in their PJs with their blankets. I got all of the bags organized the day before. Each bag contained an Oral-B toothbrush (either Stage I or Stage II depending upon the child's age), a tube of Oral-B toothpaste featuring Disney characters, Disney baby wash, coupons, a fact sheet, and a balloon!

We had a total of 8 children attend. The party began with introductions, as not everyone knew each other. We sat around in a circle with the kids and talked about the flash cards we were given. Most of the children were able to identify toothbrush, toothpaste, and apple, but none of the children knew "dentist" so we talked about the role of a dentist. The mommies all discussed how they get their children to brush their teeth. Some children love to brush their teeth while others require some sort of incentive.

After our discussion, each child was given a container of popcorn and they sat on the couch to watch the Winnie the Pooh movie together.

When the Winnie the Pooh movie ended, we passed out the goodie bags. The children really enjoyed receiving "presents."

The children ended the party by hugging one another and saying "Goodnight!" Everyone had a blast! This was a great way to get the children to socialize with one another while the mommies watched them and chatted. The night ended with everyone ready to brush their teeth and go to bed!
