As parents, one of the more fun things we can do is create magical memories around the normal parts of growing up. Losing teeth is one that I never really thought could be more than just exchanging a tooth for some money until I started talking to other parents about their tooth fairy traditions.
There are so many fun traditions that families have created for their kids. When my nephew lost his first tooth in Hawaii, it was exchanged for a shark tooth and since then has left origami dollars under their pillows.
Nicole Reaves show how to Document a changing smile that I think is such a fun way to watch our kids grow. Then 4 Sons ‘R’ Us helped her kids create a Tooth Fairy Door to help our little friend get in.
Tooth Fairy Gifts
One way we can make a magical experience for the kids is to switch up how the tooth fairy leaves that coveted money. In our house, the max amount left is $1, but most often 50cents. These fun ideas will take that money and amp up the experience with tiny trinkets and glitter.
