Tooth Fairy Letters to Your Child

When a child starts to lose their baby teeth, it is an exciting time. (MOM! The tooth fairy was here!!!) For some children, it may be a bit scary. (Who is this fairy and what is she doing under my pillow???) Either way, many parents will want to celebrate this big event and make it more fun with a personal, handwritten message from the tooth fairy.

Below, you'll find many ideas to inspire you.

Notes from Tooth Fairy to Kids

Creating a fun and magical message is not hard to do. The first thing you need to decide is if you plan on making it yourself by hand, making it on you own computer, or using scrapbooking methods. Also, you can find many free tooth fairy letters online.

Below, you'll find ideas for any of these methods. Whatever you choose is perfect and your child will love it.

For the tooth fairy, curlicues, hearts, and stars are definitely appropriate.

Sample Letters : What Would the Tooth Fairy Say?

Dear ___(Your child's name)___,

Tonight, I flew to __(Your town's name)___ to take a look under your pillow. You looked like you were having a really good dream so I tried not to wake you. I found the tooth you left for me there. What a lovely tooth it is! One of the cutest teeth I've ever seen! It's the best of my collection, I think.

Losing a tooth means you are growing up. Your baby teeth will fall out to make room for your grown up teeth. But don't worry—it will take a long time for you to lose all your teeth and you will have many new experiences to look forward to. ___(Your child's name)___, you must be careful to take care of your teeth so you'll have them for the rest of your life. Brush them well and eat healthy food!

To thank you for giving me such a fine and important tooth for my collection. I have left a little something for you, too.

Your Special Friend,
The Tooth Fairy

Dear ___(Your child's name)___,

I wanted to leave you a note to say thanks for leaving me another spectacular tooth for my collection. I've been watching you and your mommy wiggle this tooth for a long time! It was so exciting! Boy, that tooth really held on, didn't it? I thought it would never come out. I think we're all happy it finally did!

Also, I want to let you know that you have been doing a good job taking care of those teeth. It looks like you've been flossing, and I am very impressed. You really know how to brush! Don't forget to continue to brush every day, go to the dentist, and eat healthy foods to keep your new teeth looking as white and shiny as your baby teeth are.

I can hardly wait until you lose your next tooth!

Idea: Have your child write (or dictate) a questionnaire for the tooth fairy, one which you will fill out and leave under their pillow!

Other Things You Might Mention

  • If your kid was tempted to pull his or her tooth out before it was ready, this is your opportunity to have the tooth fairy offer expert advice on letting teeth fall out on their own. She could even tell a cautionary story or two.
  • The tooth fairy doesn't like dirty teeth, right? Now is the time to slip something in about your child's brushing habits (or even mention the state of your child's room's cleanliness) but don't overdo it: you don't want the tooth fairy to sound exactly like a nagging parent!
  • The more personal you can make the letter, the more impressed your child will be. The tooth fairy might mention other struggles or celebrations your child has experienced recently.

Make Your Own Tooth Fairy Letter

If you are just a little bit creative, you can make a really nice tooth fairy letter and/or certificate. It is not that hard and you really don't need to fret over being extremely creative or making your letter extravagant. Your child will love whatever type of letter the tooth fairy brings.

Here are some things to think about:

  • If you are writing your letter by hand, try to disguise your handwriting so your child does not think that you wrote the letter. This is not hard to do, just add a little pizazz to your regular handwriting.
  • Use colorful marker, crayons, or pencils.
  • Use special paper or stationery or add some stickers, glitter, confetti, pressed flowers, or other decorations.
  • If you are a scrapbooker you can create a very nice letter with your scrapbook supplies. This will even provide a nice keepsake that you can add to your child's scrapbook.

As you can see, it is not hard to create a real nice tooth fairy letter with just a few supplies. Some paper and colored pens and you are good to go. Anything extra is nice, but not necessary. So if it is late at night and you don't have the supplies necessary, don't worry about it, just grab that paper and pencil and make your tooth fairy letter.

Tooth Fairy Jokes

If your kid has a good sense of humor, why not include some puns or jokes in the letter?

Q: What do you call a grizzly bear with no teeth?

A: A gummy bear!

Q. What flies, collects teeth, and goes "ARGHBACCHHAAAA" when he sneezes?

A. The really silly tooth fairy.

Q. What does the tooth fairy sing at Christmas?

A. "All I want for Christmas is your two front teeth."

Q. What part of a tooth does the queen like to put on her head?

A. The crown!

Q. What time is it when you have to see the dentist?

A. Tooth hurty!

Buying Tooth Fairy Templates and Letters

Not creative enough to write your own letter? No worries.

There is really no right or wrong answer when it comes to the buying versus making debate. Some people feel that buying a pre-made one is a better option. If you plan on buying a tooth fairy letter or certificate, one that will come in the mail addressed to your child, there are a few things you should consider:

  • Make sure you order from somewhere that you feel confident that your child's personal information will stay secure. This is important because you are handing out your child's name and address to someone and you want to be sure that the information you will provide will be used for the letter and nothing else.
  • Take a look at what is included with the letter and ensure that they are age-appropriate for your child.
  • Read the fine print and make sure you understand what you are getting and how much you are paying.

There are a lot of wonderful companies out there that offer this service. Just shop around and find one you are comfortable with. Your child will love getting a magical tooth fairy letter in the mail. It will definitely put a smile on their face!

Sometimes you can find some special-looking money (dollar coins, $2 bills, etc.) to leave with your little tooth fairy note.

First Tooth: Where Will You Put the Teeth for the Tooth Fairy?

Be prepared before your kids lose their teeth. I have five little boys and each one has misplaced at least one tooth before the tooth fairy had a chance to visit. This can be frustrating for your child: a six-year-old just doesn't understand that the tooth fairy will still come, even though the tooth is missing.

I recommend getting (or making) a box. These little boxes are so practical and will be such wonderful keepsakes later on. From simple homemade to heirloom quality, you'll find the one that is perfect for your child.

One more thing to think about: Where will you keep the teeth the tooth fairy collects? Keep in mind that you'll also need a good place to keep them, and if you have more than one kid, you'll want to keep them separate.

Rookie mistake: How will you retrieve the tooth and deliver the letter?  You'll need a better plan!

How much does the tooth fairy bring?

Did you ever wonder what the going rate for a tooth is in other households?

How much does the tooth fairy leave for a tooth at your house?

      @anonymous: Tell you in-laws to start an account for your child. Put .50 or 1.00 as you like under the pillow and the rest in the bank. Kids need to learn in a kid size way, starting small. Stick to your guns on this! In honor of your daughters milestones (and there will be many), they can make regular deposits. If they send your daughter $100, swap it for a $1 and put the 100 in the bank!!!!

      Just a little advise please...I am at odds with the 'In-Laws' as this is my daughters first tooth to be taken by the toothe fairy and when I was a child I received $.50 and eventually $1.00. Today...I was called a cheapskate!!! I have become the jerk, because I wanted to leave $1.00 or even $3.00.....I even buckled at $5.00. Being that my 'In-Laws' are here on vacation....oh...and I forgot the big one.....Very Wealty...not Rich...WEALTHY!!! ..I wanted to allow them to take care of the money part...UNTIL...I seen the little case loaded with a Benjamin!! YES!!! $100.00.What the Jeepers am I supposed to say, do...and then we are certenly going to have a few more fall out??? By the time she is done, we are looking at a down payment on a car...this is serious!!!. What do I say with out sounding like a cheap skate....I tried a few might be a litlle too much, would you consider letting me take care of the money I'm a Donkey's back end....HELP..or Do what my best friend suggested.....swap it out in the middle of the night!!!

      Just had a baby and my 9yr old lost her first tooth. I totally forgot the Tooth Fairy was meant to come, because I as up with bub all night. Next morning miss 9 comes in, Mum the Tooth Fairy didn't come, very sad about it. I said maybe the Fairy was too busy with lots of other teeth? Miss 9 said, "Or maybe the baby kept her awake all night?" I said, "did you know I was the Fairy?" Miss 9 replies " Well duh!" Don't they grow up quick!

      When I was young and single, my best friend left her 5 year old son with me for the night. That night just happened to be the night he lost his first tooth! He was SO excited and so I was I to be able to share that experience with him. I left a $20 bill under his pillow! My friend was not very happy with me but then I explained to the child that losing the first tooth is very special and that he should not expect the tooth fairy to let that much under his pillow for subsequent teeth!
