The Tooth Fairy has been an EXTREMELY busy lady around our neighborhood these past few weeks! Our oldest was SO EXCITED to lose his top two teeth last week within days of each other and within days of his best friend losing two of his teeth too and then another one of their great buddies lost one of his too, both while at school! Which of course makes it even more exciting!
Our littlest one, has her bottom two teeth on the verge of coming out any day now, a first for her! So not only is the tooth fairy incredibly busy, and going a little bit broke, but also getting a bit sleep deprived, waiting to make the tooth-for-cash swap!
I happen to have an AMAZING mother in law who has made each of our kids really adorable Tooth Fairy Pillows and I can not thank her enough for these nifty inventions! They have made the tooth fairy’s job so much easier and my kids LOVE their pillows!!
When each of my kids got their first wiggly tooth, Grandma started sewing (so thankful Grandma can sew since I have STILL not mastered that!) and then sent them a special package with their very own tooth fairy pillow. So once the teeth come out, I place it in a small plastic bag, slip it in the pillow, and then they put it right under their pillow for the tooth fairy to find! Much easier for the tooth fairy to find a pillow than a small bag or envelope underneath a pillow! Kaylee, my youngest, is still waiting for that first tooth to come out so she can officially use her pillow for the first time!
I did end up adding a piece of ribbon to each pillow so that now each pillow hangs on the kid’s bedframe instead of going under their pillows! I have some light sleepers and the tooth fairy was having some issues with the older one waking up a lot!
Here are pictures of our Tooth Fairy Pillows!
If you don’t have a fabulous grandma in your life who can sew them for you, I have seen them all over Etsy or if you can sew yourself, I have seen tons of pictures and patterns all over Pinterest! It would be a fun project you could do with your kids too!
