I’ve got a new job, tooth fairy!

Last night I went to work for the first time as a tooth fairy!

I think I did ok!

  • I managed to navigate through the toys on the floor, without stepping on anything or losing my balance.
  • I managed to find the tooth (it was thoughtfully placed in a little pot, with the word ‘Tooth’ on it, on the bedside table)
  • Without waking the sleeping child, I skilfully removed the tiny tooth from the pot.
  • I placed the note from the tooth fairy with the gift of £2 on the bedside table
  • Then I exited the room like a ninja, without dropping the tiny tooth

Job done and first tooth fairy mission a success!

24 hours ago, I was woken at about a minute past six, by a very excited Monroe, who had finally lost his first tooth. I was a bit surprised, because I didn’t realise it was that wobbly!

For the last few months, when I’ve picked him up from school, various children have been coming out clutching an envelope containing a tooth. Or, with mouths wide open, aggressively tugging on a little tooth that is dangling by a thread!

Monroe had become increasingly concerned that he hadn’t lost any. He’d told us a few of his were wobbly, but when we checked, it seemed more like wishful thinking.

So yesterday morning was a bit of a surprise. We think he’s been forcing his little tooth to wobble and been studiously wiggling it out, at every opportunity!

At a friends, Childs birthday party yesterday afternoon, I was buzzing around like a fairy in training, asking what the going rate is for a tooth these days.

Has the tooth fairy been effected by Brexit? Has the value of a tooth dropped? So much has changed since I was a child. Are the terms still the same?

I was a bit concerned that things may have progressed and become more technical. A quick Google search revealed that, these days some fairys arrive via their own little door. Some have a postbox and their own toadstool!

Some leave very cute, tiny footprints over pillows. I personally know of one tooth fairy that was a bit heavy handed with her glitter distribution, which resulted in a nightmare clean up process and a very sparkly child!


I had limited time to gather resources and limited crafting ability.

But here is what I came up with!

A personalised little note from the tooth fairy, with a cute envelope to pop it in & his coins. I saw the original version on Pinterest and then created my own twist.

I edited my note, to encourage more brushing of teeth and eating of vegetables, post fairy visit! Doubt it’ll work, but worth a try! Feel free to use my wording or another version, which I found and tweaked! Tooth-Fairy-Letter.


All you need is a printer, some card, scissors and glue. Easy!




If you want to prepare in advance, then take a look on Etsy and Not on the high street, for some cute ideas!
