We all have memories of waiting for the Tooth Fairy and seeing what she would bring us after we lost a tooth. Since many of us reading this are now the Tooth Fairy, we thought it would be fun to share some new Tooth Fairy ideas to create special memories with your children.

12 Tooth Fairy Ideas Your Kids Will Love

Here are our favorite ideas for creating special moments and memories with your kids.

1. Fairy Money

At my house, the Tooth Fairy left a different amount of money as I got older. I thought it was particularly fun when she left a $2 bill for me. Those were extra special. But if you want to jazz up the money from the Tooth Fairy, add some fairy dust. 😉 All you need is:

Instructions: Place your bill or coin on a paper towel. Gently spray one side with adhesive, sprinkle some glitter, and shake off the excess. Repeat on the backside a few minutes later. Let it dry, and you’re done!

2. Add a Tiny Tooth Fairy Door

What child wouldn’t love a letter from the Tooth Fairy? Create a little magic with your tiny letters, which can be customized to say whatever you want. Make them unique and original with hand-painted and hand-drawn images. So precious!

4. Office of the Tooth Fairy Kit

This Official Tooth Fairy Kit is super legit. It comes from the “Office of the Tooth Fairy” and contains one letterpress Certificate of Record for filing with the Tooth Fairy and one reusable silkscreened cloth deposit bag for your first and all subsequent transactions. The official certificate records the name, age, tooth lost, method of extraction, and compensation information.

5. Tooth Fairy Pillows

These pillows are adorable and are perfect for parents. If you have a light sleeper, a Tooth Fairy pillow could be hung on your child’s doorknob or placed on a chair in their room for easy access. And you don’t have to look or feel under their pillow for their tooth desperately. These pillows help when rooms are dark and you are trying not to wake your little one.

6. Tooth Fairy Books

Reading to your children before bedtime is a wonderful and memorable nighttime routine. I love the idea of reading to your child to prepare them for an exciting visit from the Tooth Fairy. Here are a few that we love!

Some things will get lost over the years, but these sweet little boxes are perfect for the Tooth Fairy and are sure to stick around. It’s also a great place to have all your child’s teeth once you give them back and they are older. That may sound creepy, but I loved getting my teeth back in a little tin when I was older.

8. Door Hanger

If you have a super light sleeper or a pitch-black room to enter, a door hanger is the way to go! This will allow you to swap your kid’s tooth out for money without stepping inside their room. Winning.

9. A Tooth Fairy Memento

Leave a pressed penny special from the Tooth Fairy. The money will be gone over time, but these Tooth Fairy pennies will be treasured forever.

10. Leave a Receipt

Losing a tooth and waiting for the Tooth Fairy is a pretty exciting experience. This transaction is one of only a few that will happen in your life. Logging this and receiving an “official receipt” makes it a memory for many years.

11. Have a Chalkboard

Take a picture with all the details of when your kid lost their tooth! All those photos will add up and be a great little album or collage.

12. Tooth Fairy Dish

Another cute idea is to have a dish where the tooth and the money can be exchanged. This makes it easy to find what you are looking for. We thought these were super sweet.

And for all of you parents, not sure what to do with your little one’s teeth once collected? You can throw them away, but if you want to keep them, here is a great place to store them and potentially give them back to your child once they are grown.
