Bringing the magic of the Tooth Fairy alive in your home can be fun for both you and your child. Your child will be filled with wonder about the Tooth Fairy as she collects his or her baby teeth and leaves rewards in their place. You will be thrilled to create this joy and excitement in the life of your child. If you’d like to have the Tooth Fairy be about more than just money, you can write letters from the Tooth Fairy to encourage your child to brush their teeth and to answer any questions about the Tooth Fairy that they may have.

How Many Tooth Fairies Are There?
There are different opinions on this as well as different mythologies, so this is up to you. If you decide that there is only one, signing letters, “The Tooth Fairy,” shows this. If you would like to go with the mythology that there are many tooth fairies, you can give your child’s fairy a name and a personality. This can make the experience even more fun! If you go with the multiple tooth fairies mythology, this could explain why your child’s tooth fairy leaves letters, while other tooth fairies only leave money.

Are My Parents the Tooth Fairy?
In order to keep the magic of the Tooth Fairy alive for as long as possible, make sure that you don’t write in your own handwriting when you leave a note from the Tooth Fairy. You can print off the Tooth Fairy’s letter with small, fancy font, or hand-write the letters with tiny letters. Using a fine-tipped pen makes this easier. That way, your child will know that someone much smaller than mom or dad left the letter.
