Tiny Letters from the Tooth Fairy
Under the Pillow
When I was little I loved it when I lost a tooth! For as most children know, for every tooth you put under the pillow, the tooth fairy will come and leave a little something in exchange for taking it. I was fascinated by the tooth fairy and always imagined her as a beautiful tiny creature with wings and tooth wand of course. Once when I was little I wrote the tooth fairy a letter asking for her picture. I was delighted to find a miniature letter under my pillow (along with a few quarters which I also was delighted about) in the morning. The letters were tiny and curly, exactly what you would expect a tooth fairy's handwriting to look like! She politely told me in her letter that she couldn't have pictures taken of her but I was still astonished that she had replied at all. It was a magical moment and a fond memory I keep close to me.
One whimsical way to keep the magic of the tooth fairy alive for your children is to have her write letters and include them with her gifts under the pillow. First imagine what you think a tooth fairy would be like. Is she blue or purple? Little or Large? Does she have glitter or sparkle? Try to incorporate these things into the lettler itself. For example, use a purple pen and just a touch of glitter to represent fairy dust. One of the best things about receiving my letter was how tiny it was! You can cut down your own paper or use the "World's Smallest Post Service." The smaller the better, just make sure you can read it!
