Shhhhhhh. This post is only for parents (and Tooth Fairies)
I didn’t grow up with the Tooth Fairy. No, I didn’t had a “bad” childhood, but in my language we had the Tande Muis (Tooth Mouse). Since we moved to Australia, I’m thinking it is a good time to introduce the Tooth Fairy to my kids. (I will tell them the Tooth Mouse is from Africa).
To loose a milk tooth is a very special moment in a child’s life. My son has special memories of putting the tooth in a shoe with a piece of cheese (and sometimes a milk bottle top with water) for the Tooth Mouse. The next morning he will wake up very early to see what the mouse has left him. Then he ran to our room with his money and a letter. And for the next few days he is only talking about the Tooth Mouse (and the money of course).
Here are lots of tutorials and free printables to make the Tooth Fairy memory so special to your child.
What is your Tooth Fairy tradition in your house?
