Hello! It’s Vanessa of See Vanessa Craft, back with another kid friendly painting idea for you. Losing that first tooth can be a bittersweet milestone for most parents, as we watch our children grow up much too quickly. My son has been counting down the days until that first wiggly tooth, because he knew that the tooth fairy would finally grant him a visit. He recently lost his first couple teeth and before he did, I was so happy that we went to As You Wish to paint a special “tooth box”. Instead of placing the tooth under the pillow, he places it in this special box for the tooth fairy to collect. In our house, the tooth fairy leaves behind glittered dollar bills. I recommend having the tooth fairy pick up a bottle of glitter hairspray, it works great when sprayed on money. She can also leave behind a tooth fairy receipt for each tooth, keep on scrolling for the free tooth receipt printable.
Tooth Box (painted at As You Wish)
Tooth Fairy Receipt
Step 1: Head to As You Wish and have your child paint their own tooth fairy box or you can have it custom painted by one of the artists there, like this one was.
Step 2: Leave the lost tooth in the box.
Step 3: The tooth fairy can print out the free Tooth Fairy Receipt printable. Cut along the lines and fill out a receipt for each tooth lost. Circle the quality of the tooth.
Step 4: The tooth fairy can swap the tooth for the receipt, along with money and a little magical glitter! Use the tooth box for future lost teeth.
