Our Oral-B Stages III & Oral-B Crest Pro-Health FOR ME Party! #OralBCrestFORME

We had a big weekend here at the Beckee's Deals house. we had to parties that I need to tell you about. the first we had last Friday Night. I was able to do this party through MommyParties sponsored by Oral-B Stages, Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME and it was a blast!

Before I tell you about the party, let me tell you a bit about Oral-B Stages, Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME.

Oral-B Stages has 3 stages of teeth care for kiddos starting at 4 months old all the way up to 7 years old. Each stage is tailored to your kids age.

Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME sort of picks up where the Stages collections cuts off and is geared toward the "tweens". It is (this is a quote from their website) "the first-ever complete collection of oral care products for kids 8-12, with rinse, brush, floss, and toothpaste made just for them. Soon, they’ll be brushing and rinsing for fun. Seriously."

You may recall that I have 5 kids ages 8 months, 3, 5, 7, and as of last week 9. I can tell you we have used all these and my kids LOVE them! And I love that I can easily identify and find the right tools for each age as my kids grow.

Now, Let me tell you about the Party!! The sponsors sent me a party pack that included the following:
  • (11) Toothbrushes. Some were Oral-B Stage III Brushes, others were Pro-Health FOR ME Brushes
  • (11) total flossers: Some were Oral-B Stages Flossers and some were Pro-Health FOR ME Floss Picks
  • (11) Pro-Health FOR ME Paste
  • (11) Cars II Gummy Vitamins samples
  • (11) Balloons
  • (11) Popcorn boxes for guests
  • (11) Guest Gift Bags
  • (3) Pro-Health FOR ME Rinse
  • (1) Disney’s Cars II Movie DVD
  • Recipe & Activity Ideas
  • Cars II Playdate Invites
I was asked to have a Cars 2 viewing party and given some fun activities and great prizes to hand out (as you can see from the list above. I took the bags they provided and put together little (well big really) bags for the kids to take home with them. I had 18 kids come so I had to go get a few more of the items to make sure everyone got a goodie bag.
When everyone got here, we played a game that was sent in my party pack about what promotes Healthy teeth and what is not good for your teeth. It want well and we talked a bit about the items provided by Oral B and Crest that they would be taking home.

Then it was on to the movie. I set up a "movie theater" in my living room with a concession stand in the kitchen and dining room. We ate pizza for dinner and had lots of junk food (I told them to make sure to go home and use their new Oral B/Crest goodies to clean their teeth!)

It was a BLAST! I think everyone had a great time and they loved, LOVED their goodie bags! It was nice to be able to send them home with something useful and fun (and BIG-full size tooth paste and toothbrushes and flossers!!) I took some creative pictures to share with you so as not to show all my friends kids faces on my public blog. There is also a video of MY kids from RIGHT after their friends left. They are talking about what they cannot wait to try! Here are the pictures:

Here is the video of my kids after the party talking about what they are most excited to try!! It is sideways because for some reason when I rotate it, it cuts off and screws the whole video up...sorry!
I love having fun activities like this at my house! Thank you again MommyParties, Oral-B Stages, and Oral-B/Crest Pro-Health FOR ME!!

***Disclosure: I was provided the above mentioned party pack free of charge. I was asked to give the party and write a blog post about it in return. I was not compensated in any other way for this party or this post!***
