Ideas for Celebrating National Tooth Fairy Day
Give your kids a few mouth-friendly and kid approved gifts to celebrate Tooth Fairy Day. A few top ideas are a new toothbrush with a character on it, sugar free candy, cavity fighting lollipops or a new toothpaste with a fun new flavor. Or, use this idea when the Tooth Fairy comes to visit. She can leave a gift behind when she stops to pick up those lost teeth.
There are many books, websites and videos featuring the Tooth Fairy that teach kids about good oral hygiene in a fun way. Visit your local library to check out books or do a quick web search to find online options. You can also print out Tooth Fairy coloring pages as well so your kids can make their own Tooth Fairy Art after story time.
Even if your kids don’t lose any teeth on Tooth Fairy Day, the Tooth Fairy can still leave them a note under their pillow about the importance of taking care of their teeth. The Tooth Fairy might mention she leaves extra special presents for very clean and well cared for teeth.
In summary, kids will typically start losing their baby teeth around the age of 6. It is never too early to introduce the Tooth Fairy and instill good oral habits as soon as your child is old enough to brush their own teeth.
