An Unforgettable Visit From The Tooth Fairy

tooth fairyWhen your child loses their first tooth it’s a big deal; and most children know that not only does this mean they are a big kid, but that they will be getting a visit from the tooth fairy. Children are excited to put their first tooth under their pillow to wake up in the morning and find money or a prize in its place.  As a parent, you want to make this first time event in your child’s life as special as possible. Here are some creative ideas that will make your child’s first visit from the tooth fairy unforgettable.

A certificate or letter – Having an official certificate is a cute way to honor your child for their first lost tooth and visit from the tooth fairy.  You can find many ideas and materials online to try out.  Things like receipts, certificates and letters from the tooth fairy on miniature paper so it looks just like it was sent from her are so fun for kids.

A treasure hunt – Instead of your child waking up to a reward under their pillow, have the tooth fairy send them on a treasure hunt for their treasure. Leave clues under their pillow and around the house until they find some gold coins or a fun present at the end.  Add in some fairy dust for a magical finish.

A glass of water – A fun alternative to putting the tooth under your child’s pillow is to have them leave it in the bottom of a big glass of water.  In the morning they can see that the tooth fairy jumped in to get their tooth because of the magic dust (glitter) and coins left behind.

Tooth fairy basket – The tooth fairy may want to copy off the Easter bunny and bring a basket full of goodies in exchange for your child’s first tooth.  But instead of chocolate eggs and other goodies, the basket should be full of healthy snacks, books, money, or even a new toothbrush.  Include a hand written letter (on miniature paper, of course) from the tooth fairy.

Make a tooth fairy door – You can find supplies for miniature doll houses and create a whimsical door for the tooth fairy to enter through.  It’s a simple way to keep the magic of the tooth fairy alive.

Whatever you choose to make your child’s first lost tooth unforgettable, also don’t forget to talk with them about good oral hygiene habits and help get them excited about keeping their permanent teeth clean and healthy.
