Fairy Door

How exactly is the tooth fairy going to get in the house? Make your Childs imagination run a little more wild with installing your own fairy door. Dress up the entrance and it’ll be perfect for a late night visit.

This door from Amazon is my favorite and it comes with a tiny little mail box too. Have your child write a letter to the tooth fairy and write a response. Find it Here.

Tiny Tooth Fairy Letter

Speaking of a letter to the tooth fairy. There are all kinds of letter kits you can buy. So creative and unique. I love them. This is my favorite. It comes with personalized notes and little shimmer envelopes. Perfect to put in the Fairy Mail box above.

Tooth Fairy Plushie or Pillow

When I was a kid I remember having a little tooth pillow. I believe I made it in school at some point. Now there are all kinds of ideas for little tooth plushies and places for your child to safely put their tooth to await the tooth fairy. I loved these two. I plan to make one myself for my kids as they get older. Find Them Here.

Glittered Money (Fairy Dust)

Of course their are so many DIY ideas and my absolutely favorite is making glitter money. Buy some glitter spray and just spray it on the bills. Make it even more interesting with a hand print. Use a small doll to place their hand on the cash and spray the glitter, leaving a small hand print of no glitter, or do extra glitter over the hand print.

Foreign Money

Like Santa, tooth fairies have a lot of people they have to visit every night, many not in the same country. Get some foreign money to have the tooth fairy give your child. Then use the morning as a wonderful time to sit and talk about the country, their money, kids in that country and how they have the tooth fairy visit as well. Perhaps even look up customs for tooth fairies in that country.

Teach a Lessons

There’s bound to be a day when you’re child isn’t the little angel we see while they’re sleeping. The tooth fairy can teach lessons like mom and Dad. Rooms dirty? Tooth fairy has to leave a note they were unable to leave money because the room was way too dirty. They have to clean it before they’ll get their tooth fairy money.

Glitter Steps

Just like the glitter money, have a windowsill where the tooth fairy entered, or perhaps at the fairy door. Sprinkle glitter around a small dolls feet (such as a barbie) to leave small little fairy footprints.

Photo Proof

Now it’s really easy to get proficient enough on Photoshop to add a fairy to a picture of a sleeping child. Take photo evidence of the fairies visit. A photo of a sleeping child then add a fairy. Show them first thing in the morning.

Don’t forget about you mom and dad!

Save your child’s baby teeth in a keepsake box. This helps you also keep organized with whose are whose when you have multiple children.

This box is my favorite. I kind of wish they had them like this when I was little. Find it Here.ย

  1. These are cute ideas! Our tooth fairy leaves a LOT of glitter, which is funny because mom and dad aren’t a fan of glitter.. lol! The fairy sprinkles it all in the bed so the kids have it in their hair and all over.

  2. We just had our first visit from the tooth fairy!!! It was unexpected too because the tooth never had a chance to get loose! That pesky adult tooth grew up right behind it and pushed it right out randomly one day. Talk about a surprise!
    For us, the tooth fairy left a cool certificate and a special box to leave those next teeth in. She also left a set of LEGOS instead of money because she thought he’d enjoy the legos more than money. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love love love love the glitter money idea. If we switch over to giving money, I”m totally doing that.

  3. Those are such great ideas. Our older one, is so keen that his teeth move, almost all of his colleagues already experienced this.

  4. I grew up believing in tooth fairy and I can say that it makes our childhood happier and more magical.

    Love these ideas you shared. They’re brilliant and fun.

  5. How cute are those little boxes for the teeth?! Wish I’d seen them when my 7y old first started losing them. Love the ideas!! If you’re not Photoshop proficient, there are also a few apps you can look up that will add a fairy to a photo! We have a video monitor in both my kids rooms and I took a screen shot of my son sleeping, uploaded it to a tooth fairy app and it added both light, falling glitter and the mysterious fairy to the picture! My son was THRILLED!!

  6. I love these ideas! That box is the best! My son just lost a tooth last week. Between he and my daughter, we’d get some use out of these! Lots more loose teeth to go in this house.

  7. These are all such fun and creative ideas. But I must say that my absolute favourite is the box. Genius! All parents would like to keep their children’s teeth, and this is the perfect way to keep them safe. Not to mention that it will become a great childhood treasure box for the soon to be grownups.
