Instead of Putting a Tooth Under the Pillow
Have you ever lost a tooth under the pillow? I have! One of my oldest son’s teeth fell between his mattress and headboard and at that point, I said I was going to approach the tooth under the pillow thing a little differently. We chose to use a tooth pillow, but there are so many cute ideas to choose from.
Personalized Tooth Pillow
Have your child put their tooth inside a tooth pillow and the Tooth Fairy will leave money inside the pocket.

What Should the Tooth Fairy Leave?
Would you like the Tooth Fairy to do more than come into your child’s room and leave a dollar or two under the pillow? There are so many creative tooth fairy ideas that people have come up with that will make losing a tooth a special event.
- Native American dollar coin, also known as the Sacagawea dollar. You may be able to find these coins at your local bank. Since they aren’t commonly used in circulation, your bank may have some located in their vault for purchase.
- Musical toothbrush. This toothbrush will make your kids want to brush and will help them do a better job. This toothbrush plays music for two minutes so they’re sure to brush their long enough.
- A Tooth Fairy coupon. Draw or print a coupon from the Tooth Fairy that gives your kids extra screen time, dinner of their choice, a lunch date, a board game, or anything else your kids would love.
