3 Fun Tooth Fairy Ideas for Kids, Webster, New York

A visit from the tooth fairy is a quintessential part of childhood. It’s also a fun way to reward your kids for proper dental care and visits to the dentist. Adding a personal spin to the tradition can make it even more memorable. Get creative and make an experience your child will continue to cherish and pass down to their children with these ideas.

How to Play the Tooth Fairy for Your Kids

1. Give Notes From the Tooth Fairy

Get your child excited with a personalized, decorated note from the tooth fairy. Commend them on proper brushing and flossing and provide tips for a better diet and dental care habits. You can then encourage your child to make a card and write a letter back to the tooth fairy. Ask them to track brushing and flossing on a chart so they can share it with the tooth fairy the next time she comes.

2. Provide New Dental Care Tools

Choose instruments that feature your child’s favorite cartoon character or that light up. Consider combining this idea with a note from the tooth fairy for a more personalized experience.

3. Borrow From Other Cultures

Every culture has a unique way of commemorating tooth loss. In the Middle East, children throw their tooth into the sky. South African children hide teeth they lose in slippers, and in Asia, children throw their teeth onto the roof. Make losing a tooth an educational experience where you share a different cultural twist each time with your child. This is a fun way to further reinforce the importance of brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist.
