A healthy smile you must have, my young padawan. And what better way to encourage good oral health habits than by leveraging the power of the Force?
Grab your little Luke or Leia and check out this do-it-yourself Star Wars toothbrush holder.
- Star Wars figure(s) of choice (Don’t want to risk ruining your child’s favorite figure? Check your local secondhand store!)
- Electric Drill
- Super Glue
- Your little one’s current toothbrush (Buy a new one if it’s more than three months old)
While holding the figure’s arms together in a circle, slide the brush in overhead. Adjust the arms accordingly so that the bristles won’t fall through.
Once you’ve perfected your measurement, superglue the arms together. Hold tightly for 30 seconds. While the glue is drying, decide where on the wall you want to mount your figurine. Use a pencil to mark your preferred spot(s).
Find a small screw that’s long enough to go through the toy and the wall. Match the correct drill bit to your screw.
Move your figure’s arms so that they’re out of the way. While pressing the toy against the marked spot on the wall, slowly drill a hole until the tip of the screw is barely visible on the other side of the figure.
Hold the figure flush against the wall again, this time drilling through the wall. Now you’re child is ready to be one with the force (and toothbrush!)
Not only do these Star Wars holders keep clutter off of counters, your Now your child’s toothbrush is stored safely for lightyears to come!
