It is impossible!  We only manage it every night before bed and it is miserable.   Taking turns and letting them do it themselves plus letting them pick out a few fun toothbrushes and using good tasting toothpaste are good starts but getting them to like it at this age is pretty tough.   I know some people have gotten their kids the electric tooth brushes and they seem to be really into those ones.  Hope they have good teeth!  You can also have them drink water and swish it around at night to help get rid of any residue plus stick to straw cups instead of regular sippys and avoid juice etc.. to help minimize issues with their teeth.
