Losing a tooth for the first time will be a confusing event for your child; however, the anticipation of a visit from a tooth fairy can also make it an exciting experience they would look forward too. Like all kids, they need to get a letter to feel special on the day they lose their tooth. So if your child is about to lose one, have a fun tooth fairy note first tooth on hand ready to start a tradition for your child. Here are some ideas on how to write a tooth fairy letter for your child.
Who Is a Tooth Fairy?
A tooth fairy is a fantasy figure for children mainly in the western and western-influenced cultures. The folklore surrounding the tooth fairy is that when children lose their baby teeth, the tooth fairy visits them in the night while they’re asleep to exchange the tooth they’ve tucked under their pillow for a small payment, gift or letters.
You can create your own story about what the tooth fairy looks like and what they do with all the teeth they collect. You could also create different personas for the fairies so one leaves behind money, the other leave behind personalized letters with a treat and one special tooth fairy who likes your child more than all the others.
How to Write a Beautiful Tooth Fairy Letter to Your Child?
You can write a wonderful tooth fairy letter that your child will cherish for years if you put some thought and effort into it. Here are some tips for a letter from the tooth fairy for a lost tooth:
- The first step is to ensure your child doesn’t suspect the letter is from you. Children are naturally curious and sceptical at the same time. While they want to believe it is true, your letters should look genuine enough to convince them. Therefore avoid writing it in your handwriting on paper they can find at home. Instead pick a colored paper, craft or cardboard from an art store and write the note in small letters. You could get help from a friend and even add a fancy ribbon to it.
- Make the letter personal so it sounds real and closer to them. Address it to them and add a private detail they wouldn’t expect to make it extra special. If they pulled it out too soon, add an advice to not do that the next time.
- Now is a good time to drop some advice on dental care. Weave a story like where their tooth goes after it falls and the fairy queen doesn’t like dirty teeth. The clean teeth would go to building the castle and the dirty ones will make up the pavement on the streets. This should be a good motivator to keep their teeth clean.
- Add something humorous or funny notes, maybe a joke or how the tooth fairy witnessed a funny incident in their life.
- Mention all the times the tooth fairy has been happy with how your child maintained good oral hygiene or has been good at home. Occasionally drop a surprise letter encouraging good behaviors with a small gift.
