So you want to send some fun and magical Tooth Fairy Letters to your kids. Creating a fun and magical Tooth Fairy Letters are not hard to do when you have everything you need right on your computer.

As a mother I am always looking for ways to help improve my children’s dental care. Whenever I say “Kids, It is time to brush your teeth.” I usually hear many excuses. So anything I can find to help make this time run more smoothly I take advantage of. Kids are fickle. I know mine are. Some days my kids race to the sink, practically knocking each other down, so they can be first to brush their teeth. Some days they complain about everything from the water, to the taste of the toothpaste or even the color of their toothbrush. I am sure most parents have experienced this at one time or another.

Good dental care is important for children for many reasons. The obvious is healthy teeth means less traumatic experiences at the dentist. I can tell you from experience that this is a good benefit for your child as well as for the parent. There is nothing worse than watching your child cry and wrestle with the dentist in order to fill one of those pesky cavities. Establishing good brush habits while your child is young will follow your child through his teenage years and into adulthood. I guess you can think of your child’s baby teeth as their practice teeth to get them ready to care for their permanent adult teeth.

I have tried many different methods to keep my children interested in brushing. I have tried the musical toothpaste lid, buying overpriced toothbrushes because they were imprinted with the newest superhero and I even bought the toothbrushes that twirl and spin hoping to keep my children interested. Well, they all worked for a while, at least until the novelty wore off.

After a traumatic visit to the dentist with my 5 year old I wanted to do something special for him. After he went to sleep I sat at my computer and wrote a special Letter from the Tooth Fairy telling him how brave he was and that although he is brushing his teeth every day he still needs to use the proper techniques like mommy showed him. I also added a brand new green toothbrush and toothpaste just for him. When he woke up in the morning and received the unexpected note from the tooth fairy he was so excited. After all, most children know the tooth fairy is coming when they lose a tooth, but when the tooth fairy sends a note out of the blue it can add a sense of excitement and encourages the child to brush. My son was so happy and told everyone he saw how the tooth fairy came to see him and he did not even lose his tooth yet. He believed that the tooth fairy is watching all of the time, just like Santa.

Enjoy the magical time when your children believe in the Tooth Fairy. Enjoy the twinkle in their eye and the smile across their face. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity to help your child understand the importance of good dental care.

How to Create a Fun and Magical Letter from the Tooth Fairy

Creating a fun and magical tooth fairy letter does not have to be hard. This is a special time in your child’s life and seeing the magic in your child’s eyes when he receives a personalized letter from the tooth fairy is worth the time and effort it takes to create a special letter for your child. Creating magical and fun letters and notes for your child does not take a great amount of artistic ability. Your child will love any type of letter or note and will add some very happy magic to your child’s tooth loss. Creating Tooth Fairy letters is not hard. It does not have to be extravagant really. Your child will love even a short note from the tooth fairy. It does not matter if you write a last minute note in the middle of the night or spend time and prepare for this fun and exciting visit. So here are 5 tips to help you get started:

Here are 10 Ideas to Make your Child’s Tooth Fairy Letter Magical

  1. Add information about the child, such has how his tooth wiggled and wiggled and what happened when it finally came out. This makes the letter more personable and special to the child.
  2. To promote good brushing habits be sure to comment on well they are doing or what they need to improve on. This will help reinforce what you have been teaching him, brushing is important.
  3. If you have glitter or confetti handy (and don’t mind cleaning it up) you can sprinkle small amounts where the tooth fairy may have been, such as by the window on a nightstand, etc. This can add a sense of wonderment and realism seeing the magic “fairy dust” left behind..
  4. Use color. You can use color paper, colored letters or clipart. Makes the tooth fairy letter fun.
  5. The Tooth Fairy Letter does not have to be real fancy. A simple hand written note will work just as well too. Just make sure your child won’t recognize the hand writing.
  6. Try to pick paper that your child will not see laying around the house. Kids are smart and they may become suspicious if the letter or note arrive on the same paper that mom writes her grocery list on. You can pick up some stationery for your project at the store for an affordable rate or simply use a blank piece of paper.
  7. Try to disguise your handwriting or even use a fun font on your word processing program. You don’t want your child to recognize your handwriting.
  8. Take advantage of this moment to encourage your child to continue practicing good dental care. If your child knows the Tooth Fairy is watching and noticed good brushing your child is more likely to continue. Enclose some goodies in your Tooth Fairy letters. You can slip a few special stickers, a new tooth brush or any other little item you feel your child would like.
  9. Send notes and letters throughout the year when you notice your child is not brushing as they should and remind them that they need to care for their teeth throughout the year.
  10. By sending Tooth Fairy letters to your child during this exciting time will add some magical and fun memories for you and your child. They will also make great keepsakes for albums that can be enjoyed as your child grows. It is not hard to create Tooth Fairy letters for your child. They do not have to be elaborate or fancy for your child to enjoy them. Your child’s toothless grin will prove that when they receive the Tooth Fairy letter in the morning.

I am sure you remember how exciting it is to lose those first teeth. Help add some extra magic and memories to share with a fun filled tooth fairy letter. Tooth Fairy Letters do not have to be elaborate and expensive. Just so they are fun and relay the excitement and magic of the tooth fairy your child will love it. The tooth fairy is a magical time in your child’s life and by providing a tooth fairy letter to your child you will help create a memory that can be cherished forever.

Letter for Child Who Had Tooth Pulled by Dentist

Sometimes a child will need to have a tooth pulled from the dentist rather than waiting for it to wiggle out on its own. We have a free tooth fairy letter idea just for that occasion.

Text of this letter is as follows:

Dear ___(Your child’s name)___,

Thank you for the tooth. I was really excited to come to your house tonight. I hope I was not too noisy.
You were so brave at the dentist today. Everybody was so proud of you. You did wonderfully. I bet you are very proud. I know that it was a little scary.

You were very brave. Great Job!!!!

I am leaving you a little something in exchange for your tooth. Thank you very much. Remember keep brushing!!!!

Tooth Fairy Pillows

Tooth Fairy Pillows make a wonderful keepsake. They are also very useful in helping to keep those tiny teeth from getting lost in the sheets. There are so many options when it comes to Tooth Fairy Pillows.

The Tooth Fairy Legend

The Tooth Fairy hasn’t always been around to deliver gifts to children who leave their teeth under a pillow. In the Middle Ages in England, the tradition was to bury baby teeth that fell out, and around the world, many different customs have been followed, from throwing your tooth on the roof to wrapping it in a piece of bread and feeding it to an animal.

According to Wikipedia, the tradition of leaving your tooth under a pillow for The Tooth Fairy is believed to have originated from a French fairy tale. In the tale, a mouse changed into a fairy to defeat an evil king by hiding under his pillow and knocking out all his teeth. And in many parts of the world, including our neighboring Mexico, many children still hide their teeth for Raton De Los Dientes, or Tooth Mouse.

In the United States, a play called The Tooth Fairy was published in 1927, and an episode of the “The Little Rascals” from 1938 included a plan in which some of the kids agreed to pull their teeth out to make money from the Tooth Fairy. Interestingly, Wikipedia says the fairy’s first major appearance as an illustration in popular culture in the United States came in the Peanuts comic strip. In a March 1961 strip, Frieda asks if the Tooth Fairy’s prices are set by the American Dental Society.

A great book to learn more about tooth traditions around the world is “Throw Your Tooth on the Roof: Tooth Traditions from Around the World” by Selby Beeler.

How Much Does the Tooth Fairy Bring?

How much The Tooth Fairy leaves at your house depends on many factors. For instance, just as gas costs more in California than in Texas, The Tooth Fairy’s rates often vary by geographic location. After all, she has to fly farther for some teeth. In addition, some teeth are smaller than others, some teeth are brushed much better than others, and the first lost tooth is, of course, the most valuable. But how much does The Tooth Fairy leave at most houses?

A 2018 poll by Securian Dental says the average gift this year is $5.09, up from $4.71 the year before. But the poll also noted that The Tooth Fairy’s generosity ranged from a low of five cents (one can only assume those kids never brushed their teeth) to a high of $50 (one can only assume those kids had a special connection to The Tooth Fairy!).

The average for the Securian Dental poll, however, is lower than another survey conducted a few years ago. CNN reported that a 2016 survey of 150 mothers conducted by eBeanstalk.com indicated The Tooth Fairy left an average of $3.64 per tooth when visiting their homes. Of the parents who responded, 60 percent said The Tooth Fairy gave less than $3 per tooth. But in some parts of the country, The Tooth Fairy has been reported to leave $20 or even more per tooth.

Obviously, The Tooth Fairy looks at many criteria before deciding on the proper amount for each child.

We’d like to know how much The Tooth Fairy leaves at your house. Please take the poll below so we can keep track of The Tooth Fairy’s going rate for 2019. Thank you!
