Are your kids at the age where they will begin loosing teeth and you need to prepare for their first visit from the Tooth Fairy?

 

We have created a guide with information about when children typically loose each tooth and Tooth Fairy ideas your kids will love!

 

DIY Tooth Fairy Bags:

tooth-bags

What you need:

1 piece wool felt in a bright color of your choice

1 piece wool felt in ecru

Embroidery thread in ivory

Embroidery thread to match your bright colored felt

At least 28-inches of a white cotton yarn

Tooth template (you can find online) printed, and cut out.

 

How to make it:

Trace the tooth template on the ecru felt and cut it out.

Cut the bright felt into a 3-inch x 8-inch rectangle.

Cut the yarn into two 14-inch pieces.

Fold and pin each short side in 1/2 an inch towards the wrong side.

Using the bright embroidery thread, sew these folds down with a small running stitch. You will later thread the drawstring through the small tube created by these hems, so make sure not to sew them closed.

Fold the piece in half right side facing, so the two hems meet up at the top.

Place the tooth shape in the center of the folded piece and pin it down to the top layer of felt.

Using the ivory embroidery thread sew the tooth in place keeping the top open to create a little pocket as shown above.

Fold the piece in half again with the right side facing out and the top hems matching.

Pin the sides closed.

Using the bright embroidery thread sew both of the sides closed with a small running stitch and stop at the top hem. Do not sew all the way to the top; leave the tubes created by the top hems open.

Thread a large, dull needlepoint needle with one of the 14-inch pieces of yarn and pull it through one of the top hem tubes.

Then turn around and thread the same length through the opposite tube.

Tie a knot at the end of the length of yarn.

Repeat this on the opposite side of the top hem with the other 14-inch length of yarn.

Trim both of the ends of the yarn drawstrings. You are finished!

 

DIY Tooth Boxes

 

What you need:

1 large empty matchbox

Several sheets of colored felt — enough to wrap the box and line the inner tray

Tacky glue

Ribbon

Thin red pen or marker

White, pink, and blue felt for decoration

Scissors

 

How to make it:

Pull the inner tray out of the box and line the inside with glue and felt as shown. Wrap the outside of the box with felt and glue it in place.

Glue a 20-inch ribbon to the outside of the box to make a hanging loop. Fold a 4-inch ribbon in half and glue it to the bottom of the inner tray to create a handle for sliding it in and out.

Draw a tooth shape on paper, cut it out, and trace it onto the white felt twice. Cut out the teeth and face details.

Decorate the teeth with the eyes and cheeks and draw on a mouth. Glue one tooth to the outside of the box.

Create a tooth pocket by applying glue to the sides and bottom of the remaining tooth as shown, leaving an opening at the top. Glue the pocket to the inside tray. Once the glue dries, the box is Tooth Fairy-ready. Have your child put his tooth inside the inner pocket and hang it outside his door before he goes to bed!

DIY Fairy Dust:

 

What you need:

1 tablespoon glycerin

1 cup Aloe Vera gel or a 6.8 fluid ounce bottle of Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh

Fine Glitter in as many colors as you would like

Small screw top Jewelry Designer Bead Storage System

Stickers (optional)

Wooden skewer

 

How to make it:

In a glass jar or bowl add 1 cup of Aloe Vera gel or the entire container of Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh.

Add 1 tablespoon of glycerin and mix well.

Add a few drops of Lavender essential oil and stir.

Set aside overnight if cloudy. If you used aloe gel and it did not cloud up continue to the next step.

Take the lids off all the bead storage containers but leave the individual containers in the plastic case they came in.

Using a small spoon fill each tiny container with the gel. Do not fill them to the brim or they will overflow when you are mixing the glitter in. Just below the lip of the container is good.

Snip a corner a bag of glitter. Work with one color of glitter at a time so they don’t get mixed together. Remove the number of containers for the color you are working with from the case and tap a pile of glitter on top of each one. Stir well with a wooden skewer. Add more glitter if it looks pale in color. The more glitter the bolder the color of glitter gel you will get.

Twist the lid on each container as you’re done adding the glitter and replace it in the storage container.

Snap the lid on the container to store and add stickers!
