10 Tooth Fairy Ideas That’ll Make Your Child’s First Lost Tooth Magical


It happened! My sons first tooth is LOOSE and I have been waiting for this ever since he was 5! He’s 7 1/2 now and I was starting to get worried.

This morning after eating his breakfast he gasped a big gasp, ran over and yelled I HAVE A LOOSE TOOTH!

So obviously now I’m on the internet trying to get the best tooth fairy ideas I can think of for when he actually loses it!

This post is for any parent who’s child has their first loose tooth, or if your child just lost their loose tooth and you need a quick tooth fairy idea tonight! I got you covered here…

1. Tooth fairy receipt

This is a great idea for any child who has lost their first tooth. For those kids who struggle brushing their teeth every day this can be a motivational tactic to put into practice.

2. Magic tooth fairy dust

You can use magical to the fairy dust on the counters or in the bed to make it look like the tooth fairy has been there. Even though it’s probably a pain to clean up afterwards nothing beats the look on your child’s face in the morning.
