The best advice comes from someone who has walked in your shoes before. Even as a “veteran” mom, I love hearing how other parents do things and handle particular situations with their kids. Parent to Parent is where we ask other parents how they handle a situation and share the answers with you. It takes a village, so leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments. Today’s topic is Tooth Fairy Traditions.

Parent to Parent: Tooth Fairy Traditions

Today {February 28th} is National Tooth Fairy Day! In celebration, we asked out writers as well as the fans on our Facebook page to answer the question,

What does the tooth fairy leave at your house?

  • Silver Dollars or Gold Sacagawea Dollar coins – Several Fans and Writer Melissa
  • $1.41 – which is one dollar bill, one quarter, one dime, one nickel, and one penny – Fan Angie
  • $2 bills – Fan Pam
  • $1 a tooth
  • Writer Genevieve says “Each kid sewed their own tooth fairy pillow before they lost their first tooth. When left in their room the tooth fairy leaves them a personalized note with some sort of fun toothpaste, a few quarters, and some sugar-free gum” Her kids also have their own individual fairies they are named: Flossy, Toothena, and Fang.
  • Writer Cheryl mentioned a friend who had a great idea. Before the child loses a tooth she went to a coin shop and got “not so good condition” coins from all over the world. The tooth fairy will leave a $1 plus a coin from the last place they visited before your house. (or you can buy them on Amazon)
  • Writer Melissa is lucky if the tooth fairy remembers to come the first night but when she does she doesn’t worry about trying to find them under the pillow or the top bunk as she has an adorable tooth fairy pillow from MADE in Lake County Artist: Apples and ‘Nana’s.
