Last night, I got to play Tooth Fairy for the first time ever. My 6 1/2 year old daughter (the half is a very big deal) finally lost her first tooth. The thing has been loose for months. I’m feeling a little sad that my biggest girl is growing up (they always look so much older with missing teeth!) but at least I got to do something I’ve been looking forward to forever- play the tooth fairy!! Here’s what I did. (note: I did a lot of this in advance a few months ago when I realized the time for the tooth fairy was near.)
I ordered this tooth fairy pillow on Etsy. It is completely adorable and comes in a variety of colors. It was very affordable at only $8.50 and comes with a perfect little pocket on the back to put the tooth in. They can either place it under their pillow or on their nightstand for the tooth fairy to pick up. Can’t say enough good things about this pillow, my daughter was so excited when she saw it.
I bought some Crayola glitter glue for the dollar bills. I squeezed a little bit on each dollar bill and just spread it around with my hands in a thin layer. It took under an hour to dry perfectly. I also did this to my tooth fairy certificate.
I ordered this iridescent star shaped confetti on Amazon.com for about $4.00. I used it to leave a trail of “fairy dust” across the dresser.
I found this free downloadable tooth fairy certificate online. I added the text in photoshop, saved it, and then printed it out tiny by setting my printer settings to wallet sized. Alternatively, you could print it out and then write in the details.
I made a tiny little envelope with a little bit of cardstock. I wrote our address (and the tooth fairy’s return address) on there and then drew a little postage on it. I think this was my daughter’s favorite part. I folded up the tooth fairy certificate and put it inside.
My girl was so excited when she woke up this morning. So fun to create this magic for them!
Thanks for reading!
