When a child loses a baby tooth, whether it’s the first one or the last one, it’s a sign that our baby is no longer a baby; they are growing up.
Both kids and parents treasure this stage, following traditions to mark the loss of a baby tooth.
After recently writing about Mighty Twenty’s fabulous book Where Do Baby Teeth Go? I thought about the different ways we can remember losing those baby teeth.

Getting Kids Excited About Loose Teeth!
Growing up with a little magic is just what kids need to spread their creative wings and explore their imaginations.
Yes, we all know how easy it is for kids to believe in Santa, but can they ever be just as excited about the Tooth Fairy and all those loose teeth?
With so many Tooth Fairy craft ideas that we have listed above, you are sure to find something your child will love to do. It is just one way you can get them pumped up and excited about the impending arrival of the Tooth Fairy.
Here are a few more Tooth Fairy ideas you can implement.
Instead of your little one just receiving plain old money for their teeth, what about adding a bit of magic and fantasy by giving them glitter money?
All you need is a little hairspray and a little glitter, and you can completely transform those dollar bills into something your child will remember.
The Tooth Fairy’s Wand
Uh oh, it looks like the Tooth Fairy might have left her wand behind! Let your child discover the tiny wand the next morning.
You can purchase your own tiny Tooth Fairy wand online, or you can even make your own however you want. Tell your child to keep the wand safe until they lose their next tooth!
What’s that? Tiny footsteps on the windowsill? Many children often ask where the Tooth Fairy lives, how she gets into their rooms, and what do they do with the teeth.
Well, you can answer the question of how she gets in by placing a small bit of fairy dust (glitter) on the windowsill of your child’s room and then make tiny footprints in the glitter with your hand.
If your child is a light sleeper and you are afraid they will wake up if they leave the tooth under their pillow, you can convince them to leave it somewhere else just as exciting. Before they go to bed, have them drop their tooth at the bottom of a glass of water.
When they wake up in the morning, they can run to the glass to see if the Tooth Fairy had been there, and they will find that the water is now colored (easily done with a little food dye).
You can say when the Tooth Fairy dove in to grab the tooth, her dress colored the water.
Has the tooth fairy visited your home yet? How do you celebrate when your child loses a baby tooth?
