The loss of a tooth can be a magical time for kids when the tooth fairy takes the old tooth in exchange for a gift or cash. Help make these moments even more memorable by clicking on the image of your favorite tooth fairy letter template template and then personalizing and printing it using the Adobe printables guide for troubleshooting.

Kids learn the existence of the Museum of Teeth and how much their contributions are appreciated. Customize any part of the message to reflect your personal beliefs or rewards.
Creative Delivery Suggestions for Your Tooth Fairy Letter Template
If you're short on time or prefer the traditional method, simply print your letter and stash it under your child's pillow after they fall asleep and you take their tooth. Add some excitement and fantasy to the experience with more creative delivery methods.
Change the font size to the smallest you can get to make a fairy-sized letter. Fold an easy origami envelope in the same size as the letter and hide it with a gift under your child's pillow.
Fairy House Mailbox
When your child's tooth first starts getting loose work together on building a tiny fairy house with a mailbox for the tooth fairy. Explain that she'll need a place to rest after all that flying from house to house collecting teeth. Have your child make a mailbox for herself. Kids can write tiny letters to the tooth fairy and put them in her mailbox when they lose a tooth and you can slip the letter from her in your child's mailbox while she sleeps.
If your kid has a ceiling fan or large light fixture in their room, you can make it look like the tooth fairy used a bit of magic to deliver her letter. Hang the letter from fishing wire by taping the wire to the back of the letter with clear tape. Then tie the wire on the fan or light. Kids won't see the wire and when they pull the paper it should come loose easily if you haven't pressed the tape down too hard. You can cut the wire off the fan later when they're not looking.
For Kids Who Fear the Fairy
Kids who don't love the idea of a fantasy creature entering their room at night might prefer "mailing" their tooth to the tooth fairy and getting their reward via post. Purchase large white document envelopes and decorate the outside to match the pictures and colors on your chosen letter. Use markers and stamps to create the address, return address, and stamp. Have your child "mail" their tooth to the tooth fairy when it falls out. Place the letter in the envelope and put it in your mailbox so your child "receives it in the mail" when they wake up.
Writing Your Own Tooth Fairy Letter
If you want to make the letter to your child extra personal, you can use templates as ideas or a starting point to creating your own letter from the famed fairy. Consider these ideas as you are crafting your letter:
- Make it fun and caring: If you're not overly creative when it comes to wording or delivery strategies, don't stress. Children are typically excited about the magic of the tooth fairy and won't notice if your prose or poetry isn't award-winning. Just make it fun, caring and special for your child.
- Include brushing tips and strategies: Often young kids have a difficult time brushing properly or long enough. If you are concerned about cavities or your child has shown poor teeth hygiene, you could include some gentle tips in your tooth fairy letter on taking care of all the teeth your child has. You could even include a small gift like fun flossers in bright colors or a small timer so he brushes for the right amount of time.
- Add in some personal and unique details: Your child might be thrilled to learn the tooth fairy has sent a letter on paper in her favorite color, or knows the name of his favorite stuffed toy. Adding in a couple details that show the tooth fairy 'knows' your child can make the letter extra exciting.
- Make a clue hunt from the fairy to find the reward: If your child is really excited about the tooth fairy, you may want to draw out the fun by creating a clue hunt for him or her to do, with clues going from place to place throughout the house, and ending with the letter in a special spot, such as under your child's favorite chair.
- Become your kid's tooth fairy pen pal: For kids who are really fascinated with the fairy, having an ongoing letter relationship (beyond when he or she looses a tooth) can have a lot of appeal. If your child expresses this kind of interest, you can help him or her write letters to the tooth fairy and leave them in a designated spot, such as under the pillow. Write back with fun messages and you may just see a whole other side to your child. This pen pal scenario will help with reading and writing skills, too.
Make Magical Memories
Give your child an experience he or she will never forget after losing that first tooth or any other tooth with mail from the tooth fairy herself. Kids will have a fun memory and a keepsake they can save to remind them forever of that special day.
