Throw your toothbrush in the air!


and wave it like you really care!


Then stick it in your mouth and brush away


getting rid of those germs so you can play!


Keep scrubbin' from the back to the front, and both left and right,


   Keeping away cavities! Together we fight!


**Side note: The kids don't actually sing/say that poem. But they do brush their teeth on a daily basis, at lunch, as a whole school. It's part of the Malimali Program (malimali means smile) which promotes healthy teeth throughout the GPS (Goverment Primary Schools) here in Tonga. I think it's a pretty amazing idea and even though, for many students, it might be the only place they brush their teeth, at least they are forming some good habits!
