National Tooth Fairy Day Activity and Craft for Kids

It’s National Tooth Fairy Day! It’s a great day to celebrate your child’s healthy smile with these fun activities!

  1. Happy Food for Healthy Teeth – Talk to your child about healthy eating and the special foods that the Tooth Fairy eats – vegetables, fruit, milk, etc. Sugar takes a bit of sparkle away from the tooth fairy! Make the Tooth Fairy sparkle by eating only happy food for healthy teeth today!
  2. Color a Happy Smile – Print out these Tooth Fairy coloring pages and talk about healthy smiles while you color the Tooth Fairy!
  3. Sing and Brush – Sing a brushing song while your child brushes his teeth. We like these easy-to-sing brushing songs.
  4.  Keep Yourself in the Know – Most toothpaste brands have tips on their sites about caring for your child’s teeth. Be sure you are in the know!
  5. Think Outside the Bank – Some people think the Tooth Fairy needs to leave behind a small dowry. The excitement is not in the amount of money left in the pillow, but in the celebration of hitting another milestone. Other ideas besides leaving money are: leave a congratulatory certificate, a letter from the Tooth Fairy, a shiny penny from the year your child was born, a gift certificate to do one of your child’s favorite activities with her or a scavenger hunt to find the gift left from the Tooth Fairy.

Use your imagination, celebrate your child’s healthy smile and enjoy National Tooth Fairy Day!

    excellent tips as I prepare to take my 2 yr old to his 1st dentist appointment and brushing is always a challenge!

  2. Becky F says:

    Thanks for the tips! Will keep in mind for the future. My baby girl just cut her first tooth.

  6. Shar says:

    Great tips!

  7. Shanda J. says:

    I especially like number 5. We often forget that money should not always be the goal especially when they get older and already have an allowance.

  8. Mary says:

    great ideas! my son loves brushing his teeth :)

  9. Jenny Sims says:

    We’ve been having a tough time getting my son to brush lately, maybe it’s time to introduce the tooth fairy as incentive. Thank you for the tips, will give it a shot!

  10. Bekah Kuczenski says:

    Great ideas! My 16 month old loves to brush her teeth as well as her baby doll’s teeth :)

  11. Randi says:

    I love the idea of using something besides money as a tooth fairy reward. It seems that as kids get older the amount left per tooth gets higher and higher!

  12. Cassandra Eastman says:

    How cute! I had no idea there was a national tooth fairy day! What great ways to get kids excited about brushing there teeth!

  13. Carrie Phelps says:

    I love the idea of keeping tooth brushing fun, I plan to try the song idea!

  14. brooke t says:

    awesome – my husband is an orthodontist and would love this

  15. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    Thanks for the great tips. I like the tip about singing a song during teeth brushing.

  16. Marianna says:

    I love the toothbrushing songs! Getting teeth brushed is always a fight in our house – not sure why!!!

  17. shirley fin says:

    sing and brush is a cute idea

  18. Debra S says:

    I have found a little two minute sand “timer” to be very nice- to get them to brush long enough! They LOVE the little thing. They fight over who gets to turn it over. I keep using the “trainer” toothpaste a bit longer than “they” SAY to do so- because I notice that even the four year old doesn’t actually spit out the paste. AND they complain about “too hot” with majority of the “bigger” kid pastes with flouride. They are getting enough flouride in their city water, I do think.
    So, with the combo of the timer and paste they LOVE to use- they have NO cavities to date! Their check ups are good.

  19. Kelly Andrus says:

  30. Wendy says:

    I didn’t know there was a tooth fairy day! Our tooth fairy does some magic… we put the tooth in a clear glass of water and set it on the dresser. The tooth fairy comes, takes the tooth and magically changes the color of the water! ;)

  31. Katherine says:

This latest loose tooth is stressing her out. Needs to come out. Gonna try all these ideas to make the whole tooth experience fun again.
