toothbrushes, tubes of toothpaste, cup, water
Have all the leaders bring their toothbrush and toothpaste to club. Everyone lines up, and then you can proceed in one of two ways:
- If each leader has a different toothpaste brand, they can sell their toothpaste (in a commercial type way) and say theirs is the best
- All the leaders can sell one brand of toothpaste, and equally rave about its taste, freshness, cleaning ability, etc.
So. Back to it. Everyone is in a line, and a person on the end holds a cup 1/3 full of water. They brush their teeth, raving about the toothpaste, then spit in the cup. pass the cup to the next person, and they brush their teeth, rave, spit, pass. This goes all the way down the line until the last person. The last person also has 2 options:
- Forget their toothbrush
- Have their toothbrush, and either brush their teeth also or not brush their teeth
Either way you do it, they start talking about how great the toothpaste sounds (or how great each of them sounds) and how they want to taste it too. Then, they drink the cup of water/toothpaste spit.
*Disclaimer: it will really clear out your nasal passages if you are the person drinking. It is also REALLY fresh, and you will probably want to have something to spit into when you are done (i.e. the trash). Also, when I did it, the kids were so grossed out and I was laughing while I did it, and spilled all over my shirt, so that might be something to consider also.
