25+ Genius Tooth Fairy Ideas & Free Printables

The tooth fairy idea has been a fantasy many kids grew up believing especially in the western side of the world. I remember my aunt who lives in the US telling me about the tooth fairy whenever she would come home to visit. And, I’ve always wondered if these fairies are true. My father was not a believer and neither was my mom. Much like every other human being, I’ve lost several teeth but once did get paid in cash. But, it does not mean we can’t create great memories out of a fantasy.

Sooner or later kids will understand the concept of each family having their own fairy. Until then, we got some cool ideas for conducting your fairy business with style.

Tooth Fairy History

Parents know the tooth fairy is just a myth – a fantasy to calm kids down when their teeth are about to fall out. But, there’s actually a history about how the fantasy started. In Europe, it’s a tradition for parents to bury their children’s baby teeth. Then, when the sixth tooth falls out, they take the tooth from under the pillow and slip money or a gift in exchange for the tooth.

In the middle ages, people believed different things. The English believed burning baby teeth will spare the child hardship in the afterlife. The Vikings paid children for their teeth while Scandinavian warriors believed they bring good luck and wore them around their neck when they go to battle.

The dark side of the history? Some cultures believed that if a witch gets ahold of someone’s teeth, she can take control of that person. It was much later when the brighter sides of the tooth fairy ideas surfaced and stuck to be what most kids believe in now.

Last Minute Tooth Fairy Ideas

If you don’t have that much time to plan these ideas out, there are several things you can do.

  • IOU – you can write an IOU card for later claim if you don’t wish to just give out cash. You can play around the idea of an ice cream cone, a new toy or a candy bar.
  • Tooth Fairy Jar – you can teach your kids the value of saving even as their tooth fairy. Instead of tucking money under their pillow, tell them the tooth fairy will put it in their tooth fairy jar.
  • Tradtional – if you really don’t have the time in your hands to prepare something like this ahead of time, you can always default to the traditional way. Taking their tooth and slipping a dollar under their pillow won’t even take a minute to do.

So, mommies and daddies, have you got any favorites among the brilliant ideas we gave you?

Ultimately, kids would already enjoy the whole fantasy. But, make one of these and create and even more special memory of their childhood.

You can also be creative in what you’re going to exchange for their teeth. Ideas such as a coupon for a day at the zoo, or a note to get their favorite ice cream or a promise of a new toy will also work.

All in all, add a lot of love in what you give and your kids will feel the magic exists! Any thoughts on this post? Leave us a comment below!
