Top Tips to Consider Before The Tooth Fairies Arrival
When that first tooth falls out it’s an exciting time but chaos can set in if you’re not prepared. Here are 9 things to consider before the tooth fairy arrives.
- Plan in advance what you’re going to do when the tooth fairy makes her first visit.
- Print letters and certificates etc in advance
- Is this their first tooth? Print out one of our first tooth fairy letters written specifically for that first fallen tooth or one of the more general letters if it’s one of the other 19 teeth
- Do you want a super cute miniature letter? Opt for one of the adorable tiny tooth fairy letters and a matching dinky tooth fairy envelope.
- Is the tooth fairy a little bit late – choose one of our specially created tooth fairy apology letters
- How good are they at remembering to clean their teeth? Consider printing one of our tooth brushing record charts as encouragement.
- Do they deserve a little treat? – Why not reward them with one of the tooth fairy colouring pages.
- Do you want to record the day each tooth was lost? Consider printing our beautiful matching tooth fairy certificates or the record sheet so you can keep track of when each tooth fell out
- Don’t give yourself away. If your child recognises your handwriting, especially if they are a little bit sceptical about the magic surrounding amazing childhood traditions and fairytales they might see straight through the letters. That’s where our free printables come in handy. They’re printed in a font that the child will never connect with you unless you leave them hanging around.

Tiny Tooth Fairy Letters And tooth fairy envelope
The tooth fairy letters and certificates above are amazing but tooth fairies are tiny – so a teensy fairy-sized letter and envelope from the tooth fairy are incredibly fitting.
However, I think for most it’s quite difficult to find a pen with such a tiny nib and/or create handwriting so small. So we came up with an excellent idea of creating some for you, using our magic fairy pens.
We’ve created 6 tiny letters which are 4cm x 6cm in size. They are beautifully decorated and each contains a different message.
Choose Your Free Printable Tiny Tooth Fairy Letters Below.

How To Use The Miniature Letter and Envelope
All you’ll need is a pair of scissors and a dab of glue for the tiny envelope flaps.
- Use the scissors to cut the letter and the cutest tooth fairy envelope.
- Fold three sides of the envelope together and secure with a dab of glue.
- Pop the tiny tooth fairy letter inside the envelope
- If you have any fairy dust to hand (biodegradable glitter) you could pop a little inside for some extra magic
- Seal the envelope and place it under the pillow with the coin.
You may also like to include one of the colouring pages below or a certificate from above.
Sometimes the tooth fairy forgets to come and these letters are here for those occasions.
If more than the usual quota of children lost teeth yesterday, the tooth fairy had some other very important tasks to do or she was feeling a little bit under the weather she may have forgotten to visit your little human.
Sadly your small person will be understandably very upset that the tooth fairy forgot to come or got delayed by chattering gnomes or a sticky spider web. The tooth fairy will have quite a lot of explaining to do. One thing that can help get the fairy out of trouble is one of these winning tooth fairy apology letters where she says sorry that she forgot to come.
Simply print one out and hopefully, the tooth fairy will be forgiven – maybe the fairy could leave one of the rewards charts or colouring pages you can find below as an extra gift?

Fun Tooth Fairy Facts And Questions
- How old is the Tooth Fairy? -The tooth fairy is very old – there are records of the tooth fairy leaving her “tooth fee” as early as the 13th century.
- In America, they celebrate National Tooth Fairy day on August 22nd. Some also celebrate it on February 28th.
- How many teeth does the Tooth Fairy collect in a day? – She collects A LOT of teeth. According to Pediatric Dentistry in Long Island, she collects about 300,000 teeth from children all over the world every night.
- What do tooth fairies do with the teeth? – As we just found out she collects A LOT of teeth. The tooth fairy has a fairy castle for her home – it’s made out of pearly white teeth. It’s also thought that some of the teeth are used to help build the fairy community where she lives. She also likes to make jewellery for her friends and family. It’s been reported that any teeth with holes in them are thrown away and become fairy dust.
- How much does the Tooth Fairy pay? The rate that the tooth fairy pays fluctuates. It can depend on the country, the global economy, the size of the tooth, if it’s the first or last tooth to be shed. £1 a tooth seems to be the going rate – far more than the 20p I used to get!
- How old are children when the tooth fairy stops coming? The tooth fairy stops visiting when a child is between the age of 9 and 12. It corresponds with when their 20th tooth falls out.
- How many times does the tooth fairy come? The tooth fairy visits a child up to 20 times. That’s the number of deciduous teeth that children usually have. However, some people retain one or two of their teeth into adulthood. It would be unusual for the tooth fairy to visit if these teeth are removed in later years.
- What does the tooth fairy wear? – In many countries, the tooth fairy appears in a pretty and sparkly dress. However, in some countries, she’s a mouse.
What Tooth Fairy Tradition Will Your House Use
It’s nice to develop a personal tradition for when your children lose their teeth, but children have a lot of baby teeth, so whatever tradition you start you need to be able to replicate it 20 times – which can be hard to do over a long period.
Don’t make the tradition too complicated or elaborate or the children will start to question it. Especially as they get a little older, and realise some things are just not possible.
Printing Tooth Fairy Letters in Advance
Print your free printable tooth fairy letters, certificates, tiny letters and envelopes, and record charts in advance. See our free printable letters and certificates above – our record chart can be found below.
Printing our free tooth fairy printables before the tooth unexpectedly falls out is one of the most important tips – that way you don’t have to stress about the printer being out of ink or there not being the right sort of paper. Store them somewhere safe away from little humans – but not so safe that the tooth fairy can’t remember where she put them.
Although simple, they make a great celebration of the tooth fairy coming, making some great memories and a cute record of when they lost their teeth. Preparation is often key to surprises!
Where Do You Leave The Tooth Fairies Gift?!
The classic tradition says the tooth fairy leaves the coin under the pillow, but sometimes it can be a little too tricky to sneak in, find the tooth and replace it with a coin, letter etc.
The tooth fairy may be small but is she dinky enough to squeeze under a sleeping child’s head? The tooth doesn’t have to be left under the pillow, why not suggest your child leaves it in a small pot next to the bed – somewhere easy for the tooth fairy to find. It will be dark after all.
Tips For Being The Tooth Fairy
Playing a stand-in for the tooth fairy is pretty scary stuff, it’s like trying to sneak a stocking into a child’s bedroom on Christmas Eve – your child’s radar will be set to full power and they could wake up at any moment.
Here are a few handy tips for when you swap the tooth for coins, notes for the tooth fairy etc.
- Pop the tooth in a Ziploc bag – It will make finding the tooth if it’s kept under the pillow much easier.
- If you’re caught making the switch here are some explanations you can use
- in the morning – “Look! The tooth fairy has let you keep your tooth! And she’s given you a nice shiny coin” whilst holding the coin up. (I had to use this once, amazingly it works!)
- at night – play the caring card! Tell them you were just checking that the tooth hadn’t fallen on the floor, stolen by the dog or misplaced. Encourage them to go back to sleep.
- Keep coins specifically for the Tooth Fairy with your pre-printed letters. It’s Murphy’s Law that you will have no coins of any value in the house, not even down the back of the sofa the day your child magically loses that tooth.
- SET AN ALARM – watch, phone, the oven – or all three if you like to cancel alarm calls! This will hopefully prevent you from forgetting to make the switch.
What Does The Tooth Fairy Leave As A Gift?
When I was little we received a small coin, far less than the going rate given today, I must add. However, many families go that extra mile, making the tooth fairy’s visit extra special. Tooth fairy traditions can include leaving one or more of the following items under the pillow.
- A few coins
- A note
- A tooth fairy note and /or certificate
- A tiny tooth fairy letter and envelope
- An “I brushed my teeth reward chart”
- A printable Tooth Loss Chart
- A non-sugary treat
- A tooth fairy-inspired colouring page
- A small toy or gift
- Book – many feature the Tooth Fairy as the main character including
- The Night Before The Tooth Fairy, Natasha Wing
- How To Catch the Tooth Fairy, Adam Wallace
- What Does The Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth, Denise Barry
- A fun new toothbrush or a miniature trial tube of toothpaste
- Something from nature: a pressed flower, a special rock
What to Do With Those Tooth Fairy Letters?
Many mums and dads choose to save these lovely notes from the Tooth Fairy. You can keep them in a memory box or book. If your child leaves a note for the tooth fairy you could also keep these too!
What Do You Do With the Teeth?
This is a bit like marmite, you either love the idea of keeping a box full of baby teeth or you hate it. I’ve kept my daughter’s – mainly because I was offended when I discovered that my mum had disposed of my teeth and the worst thing was that she couldn’t even remember what she had done with them.
However, not everyone is a scientist/medic at heart like me and you may not share the same view on keeping the teeth and that is fine. It’s good that everyone is different.
If you do want to keep them as a keepsake – here are a few ideas of how to store them for your child.
- Put them in a tiny box
- Save them for a science project
- Buy a special baby tooth save box – readily available on Amazon or similar online stores – these boxes are great as they have 20 spaces, so you can put the teeth into the correct location in the mouth
- Make jewellery
If you don’t fancy keeping them, just toss them out with the trash.
What To Do When The Tooth Fairy Doesn't Come?
This happens more often than you would think. Sometimes for one reason or another, the Tooth Fairy doesn’t manage to get to your house before sunrise. Maybe you simply forgot, were out of cash or just trying to juggle a million jobs. Whatever the reason when your child wakes up you’re going to have to come up with an excuse.
Tooth Fairy Excuses
- She was busy—so many kids have been losing teeth lately!
- The sun was about to come up and she had to fly quickly back to the fairy community.
- The Weather prevented her from coming—the wind blew her off course
- Maybe she’s on vacation—everyone needs a vacation sometimes!
- Maybe she ran out of Fairy Dust and couldn’t fly.
- The child’s bedroom was so messy she could get in the room.
- Maybe the household pet saw her and she flew away.
- She ran out of coins.
- The child wasn’t sleeping, she couldn’t risk being seen, so she couldn’t come in to get the tooth.
If the Tooth Fairy doesn’t come, don’t worry about it. It happens to the best of us. To help get you and the tooth fairy out of trouble we’ve created some tooth fairy apology letters – scroll up the page a little and you can print them out and leave them the night after.
Some Useful Teeth Charts For The Kids
Charts are wonderful tools to encourage positive behaviour and keep records of events whilst having fun at the same time.
We’ve two interactive charts below that can help encourage children to get into a good habit of cleaning their teeth and one for you to record when they lost their baby teeth.
I Brushed My Teeth Chart
Everyone knows that poor oral hygiene can result in dental cavities (holes) and gum disease. But did you know it has also been linked with cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes?
One of the most important ways to prevent oral health conditions and systemic diseases is by disrupting the plaque twice a day forever! It’s a lifelong commitment. Developing good oral hygiene at a young age can prevent tooth loss and diseases in the future.
However, It’s always difficult to get children to do something they don’t want to do, even if it’s for their benefit. But they love a challenge.
Our free printable tooth brushing chart is a great way to incentivise them to brush twice a day and develop a healthy habit. Every time they brush their teeth they can colour in one of the circles to make toothbrushing fun! You can incentivise it and say they can have a non-sugary treat like a sticker at the end of the two weeks.
Why not pop Hey Duggee’s “The Toothbrush Song” on at the same time to make it a little bit more fun or create a little song of your own. In our house, we have one about dinosaurs knowing what a good idea it is to clean their teeth.
Printable Tooth Loss Chart
Keep a record of when your small human lost their baby teeth with one of these insanely cute printable tooth loss charts.
Print your chart of choice, and write down the dates each tooth was lost. You have the option of colouring the corresponding tooth on the chart.
There’s also a colour-coded list showing when baby teeth fall out. This is a general guide, the age teeth are shed can vary from child to child.
Long after the primary teeth have been shed, you’ll have a smile-inducing keepsake that you and your child will treasure.
Whatever your tradition is for the tooth fairies visit, we’re sure you will agree that it’s supposed to be fun. That look of pure excitement and joy on their face when the Tooth Fairy has visited is wonderful, delightful and a pure joy to watch.
The magic of being a child doesn’t last forever, if you’re looking to help your child have the best memories of the tooth fairy then our complete Tooth Fairy letter Template Package is the perfect resource.
You don’t have to be the most amazing tooth fairy that ever lived, remember nothing elaborate, and simple is best – your child will love the tooth fairy in whatever form you choose.
