We love arts & crafts for kids, especially if they are educational, right? It makes all the mess kind of worth it, in my opinion. In this post, we will show you how we made some really fun mouth & tooth arts & crafts for kids to learn the names and locations of teeth! The best part? The teeth are made out of mini marshmallows!

Tooth & Names Positions
Make these free arts and crafts for kids to learn tooth names positions with just your kids or in a homeschool co-op group!
1 Take 1 pink construction paper sheet and fold it in half along the narrow end. Cut along the crease. Fold one half and cut a semi-circle. When opened, it will look like an oval. The top half will be the top of the mouth and the bottom half will be the bottom of the mouth.
2 Count 32 mini marshmallows and divide into 2 equal groups of 16.
3 Start at the bottom of the mouth craft. Using your glue, make a line along the rounded part (see picture below).
Let’s continue with these creative crafts for kids!
4 Starting in the middle, glue 2 mini marshmallows, which will be the incisors (bottom center teeth) and work your way out until all 16 teeth are glued. Try to keep them even on both sides.
5 Let dry completely.
6 Let’s do the same thing, but on the top side of the mouth craft. Starting in the middle, glue 2 mini marshmallows, which will be the incisors (top center teeth) and work your way out until all 16 teeth are glued. Try to keep them even on both sides.
7 Dry completely.
8 Take the red construction paper and cut out a tongue and a 1×5 strip.
9 Glue the tongue on the bottom part of the mouth. Let dry.
10 Close the mouth craft. Glue the strip on the top part of the mouth craft. The fingers will go inside the strip to open and close.
