Tooth Day

Art Lesson
for Tooth Day

The students will design a label for their created brand of toothpaste.


  • Pictures or actual boxes from various brands of toothpaste
  • Cutouts of sturdy paper in either the rectangle shape of a toothpaste box or the shape of a toothpaste tube (you may want to make these shapes much larger than an actual toothpaste box/tube, especially for younger children)
  • Paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.



  1. Show the students the various boxes/pictures of toothpaste packaging.  Talk about how the companies want the packaging to be appealing so people will buy the product.

  2. Either as a class, or individually, the students can think up a name for their brand of toothpaste.

  3. Have the students design the packaging for the toothpaste using the mediums provided.

Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Paint with toothbrushes.

  2. Make and decorate pouches out of felt, for storing lost teeth. If felt is not available, design/decorate envelopes for keeping lost teeth.  The students may want to take them home to place teeth under their pillows for the tooth fairy.

  3. Design wings for the tooth fairy.  This can be done with any variety of materials - water colors, glitter, left-over craft supplies (such as buttons, pieces of fabric, etc.)
