1. Special Tooth Holder - I wanted to make Big Brother a special tooth pillow, but he was adamant that he wanted to use his turtle pillow that he got from Vacation Bible School. If you want to make your own tooth pillow, here is a great tutorial. There are also some other unique pillow ideas on our Pinterest Board. Some other people chose to put their tooth in a small mason jar of water or a special "Tooth Box". All of these ideas have the added benefit of getting the tooth out from under a child's pillow, making it easier to grab in the middle of the night.
2. Tooth Certificates - I loved this idea and this site for free printable certificates. I chose to make our own, however, using Publisher so I could personalize it (without paying for it) and use a script font for the Tooth Fairy's signature. We put Big Brother's certificate in his Baby Book.
3. Glitter Trails - What's more magical than glitter?! We sprinkled a trail of glitter from Big Brother's window to his dresser and left some on top of his certificate to show that the Tooth Fairy had visited.
4. Gold Coins - Rather than using regular dollars, we used gold coins to make the Tooth Fairy's money extra special. Thanks to Grandma, we have quite the collection started for the boys' Tooth Fund!
Big Brother was so excited to wake up and find his surprises from the Tooth Fairy. He was also relieved to see that she didn't leave him a toothbrush and toothpaste. Apparently, he heard from someone that if you have a cavity, she leaves you a toothbrush instead of money! :)
