20 Totally Awesome Tooth Fairy Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Well…it was a bittersweet week last week here in our house. Matthew lost both his first and second tooth. All in one moment.

He was determined once he figured out the teeth were loose to get them out of there. In a way I thought this day would not come. Losing teeth for children means money but for us moms means these babies are growing up.

Their little smiles take a drastic change only to eventually progress through the many stages of losing teeth, gaps, and of course those crooked smiles. (No worries, I have tooth fairy ideas you will love!)

  2. When I was a child, stores gave trading stamps that were saved in books to redeem for gifts. (Think S&H Green Stamps, for those who remember.). When I was an older child, not truly believing anymore but still enjoying the fun, my daddy put green stamps under my pillow along with a note from the “Tooth Fairy” explaining that the economy was tough and teeth weren’t bringing as much as they used to, so I was getting trading stamps instead of cash! I of course wrote back, explaining why this was unacceptable! This exchange went on for several nights until the “Tooth Fairy” relented and gave me some money. Those notes are one of my very fondest memories of my fun-loving daddy!
