tooth fairy ideas

toothIt’s the simple things in life that make all the difference, the fancy holidays and days out are nice but it is often the ordinary moments which you remember as you lay awake at night.  One of my wishes for my children is that the ordinary moments in life are made as magical as possible for them.  This brings us nicely to the tooth fairy.  Now this is a milestone in every child’s life and I was looking at ways to make it as magical and memorable for the little adventurers.  I was trawling through pinterest and there are so many cool ideas that I thought closer to the time I would do a few of them.

However, life being as it is, Maya’s first tooth fell out whilst we were away for a camping weekend and after weeks of being in and out of hospital with Doc’s grandma, keeping on top of potential projects was proving to be impossible.  However, we wanted it to be a magical experience for our princess’s first tooth.

Tooth Fairy Ideas

fairy doorOn return from camping, I looked around for ideas for tooth fairy ideas and thought I would look for a letter from the tooth Fairy.  I wanted one that was had photo 4 copy 2an official look about it and found this great template which could be edited here at  I was able to quickly personalise it with the mention of the camping trip and the need to keep the treats to a minimum.

Once I had the letter I then wanted to add a little magic, I had originally wanted to put one of these doors into the kids room when we introduced the idea of the tooth fairy, to answer the question of how the fairy gets into the house.  However, it didn’t manage to get one in time so that will have to wait for another day.  Once Maya went to sleep we got the letter, £2 coin and put it under her pillow.  We then got some really thick glitter and sprinkled it under her pillow, some on her cheeks and made a glitter trail to the window in the bedroom.

It was Maya’s first day back at school, so she went to school with her letter and bits of glitter still shining in her hair (she refused to let me brush it out) and was proudly showing all the none-believers that she had proof that the tooth fairy does indeed exist!



I am a traveller, mother and blogger. We love to go on adventures (big and small, near and far) and strive to show our children how amazing and beautiful the world is! I caught the travel bug many moons ago and despite having three little adventurers, I still suffer from "itchy" feet. We love the great outdoors and one another. Come and join the fun :)

      Hi Katie,

      Thanks for reading and glad you liked the idea. It was as perfect as I would have wanted it. Maya was so made up that I’m glad I had made it extra special for her. I think we get so caught up in life that we do sometimes neglect the smaller milestones, forgetting that it will be the one that the kids will be most bothered about.
