The Tooth Fairy’s Coming! Here Are Five Fun Ways to Welcome Her

The Tooth Fairy has served children for generations by leaving them a small gift for tucking their lost baby teeth under their pillows. This beloved tradition is a great way to keep children excited about growing up and help them understand the importance of proper oral care. If your child has recently lost a baby tooth, here are a few ways to help them welcome this benevolent pixie.

Have the Tooth Fairy Leave a Receipt

Leaving a little document can be a humorous way to provide your child with a way to remember the event while giving them a bit of a soft introduction to the world of monetary transactions. You might want to type one up or print out a receipt you can fill out yourself. It can include important information like your child’s name, the date, a description of the tooth taken, and a description of the reward. You can even include a brief note such as: “This tooth is in beautiful condition. Keep up the good work with your oral hygiene!”

Have Your Child Make a Tooth Fairy Dish

A Tooth Fairy dish can be a fun alternative to having your child put their tooth under their pillow. You can find a suitable dish at a local store or have your child make one. Clay, inexpensive decorations, and the like can be bought at a hobby store. Ask your child to make one that they think the Tooth Fairy would like. This can be a fun family activity and a great way to let your kid practice their creative expression.

Have Your Child Document the Occasion

You may want to take your child to an office supply store so they can pick out a notebook so they can record their visits from the Tooth Fairy. You and your child can have fun by personalizing it with decorations and drawings. Make sure your child writes a nice note to leave for the Tooth Fairy before she comes. Have the Tooth Fairy fill out the next page by noting the date and leaving a little note about your child’s dental health efforts. “This is a lovely tooth! You’re well on your way to having a beautiful set of thirty-two grown-up teeth!”

The Tooth Fairy’s visits are fun traditions that have brought joy to growing up for generations. By rewarding your child’s dental hygiene, you can help set them up for a lifetime of excellent oral health.
