7 Tips for Becoming an Awesome Tooth Fairy
Having children at various ages with teeth coming and falling out can make a parent realize the importance of playing the role of “tooth fairy” to their kids. Some great tips to help make the experience of losing that first tooth (and every tooth) at the age of believing in tooth fairies are below:
- Leave a Trail: A little glitter you get at the dollar store or local craft supply store can work great. One bottle will likely last a few teeth!
- Use Tiny Handwriting to Leave Correspondence Notes: Tooth fairies are supposed to be small little creatures that fly, right? Use handwriting that matches!
- Make it Festive: Dab some glitter glue or glitter to the end of the dollar bills that are left for the children under their pillow (or wherever you leave the money!)
- If Caught Deny It: If the children wake up when you go to put the money by or under their pillow just deny what you are doing. You are checking in on them before bed like every night they just usually sleep through it so you will never know!
- Make It Work for Them: Invite the child to write a letter to the tooth fairy letting them know exactly how they would like their money left and where to go to find the lost tooth. Have them hang it on their door before bed.
- Have a Backup Plan: If the fairy forgets to come hide some bills in their pillowcase. Tell them to go look better for it. That should do as to why the change or bills were not there that morning.
- Don’t Fall for the Upper-One: Tell the kids each house has its own fairy (the parent) and that you may not get what your friends always get — sorry kid — tough luck!
Just be sure you making losing teeth fun and exciting for your children. Those teeth all have to come out at some point, so may as well make it a real experience in the process!
