It's Toothfairy Time? What Are Appropriate Gifts For Kids?

The Tooth Fairy is a fun and exciting way to promote good dental hygiene for kids. But what if your child loses a tooth before you’re prepared? Here are some Tooth Fairy ideas to help you make the best of this important time in your child’s life.  

What Should Parents Do When A Child Loses Their First Tooth?

If your child loses a tooth during the day, have them put it under their pillow when they go to bed. If they lose it at night, put it under their pillow in the morning. Either way, the Tooth Fairy will come while they’re asleep and leave them a special present in exchange for their tooth. 

If you don’t want to keep track of teeth, you can always leave a note from the Tooth Fairy letting your child know that their tooth has been received and thanking them for taking care of their teeth. You can also include a special message about taking care of their teeth in the future.

Whatever you do, make sure you have a plan in place so you’re prepared when your child loses their first tooth. With a little preparation, the Tooth Fairy can be a fun and exciting part of your child’s dental care routine.

 

“Your smile is a little gappy. The tooth fairy is coming to leave you a little treat to make you happy.”

Try Tooth Mail From The Tooth Fairy 

Tooth Mail, or the practice of sending Tooth Fairy money by mail rather than simply leaving it under the child’s pillow, is a creative and engaging way to make the Tooth Fairy experience more special for kids. Some parents send gold coins from the tooth fairy or sweet notes with the details of the memory. 

If you want to provide proof that the tooth fairy has actually paid your child a visit, some parents use Tooth Fairy apps that allow parents to more seamlessly track when their child lost a tooth and how much money they received from Tooth Fairy.

Whether you use modernized Tooth Mail techniques or stick with traditional methods like leaving cash under your child’s pillow, the key is to make this exciting experience something that your child will remember for years to come.

 

What if You Want To Avoid Tooth Fairy Money? 

When it comes to finding the perfect Tooth Fairy gift, many parents struggle with finding a gift or experience that will reward their child for a lost tooth!  With so many options available, from toys and trinkets, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for your little one. If you’re looking for an idea that doesn’t involve leaving money under the pillow, then we recommend creating an adventure in lieu of cash. A fun family activity allows kids to choose their own adventure and gives them the chance to explore new places and try exciting activities at their own pace. Whether they want to go exploring in the great outdoors or visit a local museum or zoo,  offering a Tooth Fairy sponsored adventure is sure to provide your child with the perfect Tooth Fairy gift that they can enjoy long after their wobbly tooth falls out. So why wait? Let your kiddo choose their next adventure today!
