17 Tooth Fairy Ideas to Make Your Little One Smile

Sharing is caring!

So, my little man just lost his first tooth a week or two ago. It didn’t necessarily go as planned for him, but he was so excited. He came to me one evening and said his tooth was loose. I get the heebie-jeebies from loose teeth, so I mustered up some excitement for him and congratulated him (while inside I was cringing). 

The following day he had a dental checkup and the dentist asked if I wanted him to pull it. It was looser than I expected it to be so we decided to pull it. This saved me from the terror of the loose tooth, but it left me unable to do anything special for his first missing tooth. Now, for his second tooth which is now loose, I have some making up to do so I took to the internet for inspiration.

GETTING READY FOR THE BIG DAY

Books

There are a lot of books about loose teeth and the tooth fairy, but some highly rated titles are: The Night Before the Tooth Fairy, Peppa Pig’s The Tooth Fairy, My Tooth is Loose Dr. Moose, and my favorite, Little Rabbit’s Loose Tooth.

I had Little Rabbit’s Loose Tooth when I was little. Oh, how I loved that book! I loved it so much that I just ordered a copy for my son with the original cover because I’m nostalgic like that. To me, this one is a must-have.

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.

GIFTS FROM THE TOOTH FAIRY

Fancy new toothbrush

We have the Minions and Ninja Turtles Colgate Talking Powerbrush toothbrush at home. These toothbrushes are timed for two minutes, but the coolest part is that they also talk. The toothbrush will tell your child to brush certain areas of the mouth for a given amount of time and tell them when to switch to another area. My son has been brushing his teeth so much better now that we got these toothbrushes for him. I highly recommend them.

GET CREATIVE WITH MONEY

Are you good at origami? Even if not, this tutorial could have you folding money into butterflies in no time. How fun would this be to get under your pillow?

Glitter is a really fun way to make money from the Tooth Fairy look extra special.

Tooth Fairy coin

I bought this coin when my son first told me had a loose tooth. I was going to give him something a little special for the first tooth, but it didn’t arrive before the dentist unexpectedly pulled it out. So we missed the first tooth, but he will get this as an IOU for his second tooth.

GO THE EXTRA MILE

If just putting a tooth under the pillow in exchange for cash isn’t enough for you, these are cute ideas for making a visit from the Tooth Fairy even more magical. 

Tooth Fairy letters

A note from the Tooth Fairy herself is sure to put a smile on your child’s face. You can order tiny envelopes already pre-made, or if you are the crafty type, you can make them yourself.

Tooth receipt

Leaving a receipt for the lost tooth is a fun idea along with their money or small gift. I love this idea because you also have a memento with the date lost for each tooth without actually keeping the tooth.

Fairy door

Install a tooth fairy door in your child’s room so the Tooth Fairy can find her way in. You can sprinkle some fairy dust or even make little footprints if you feel like going all out.

Fairy footprints

These little footprints would be adorable coming from the door above, or even on a windowsill. This might be the cutest thing ever!
