Write the Tooth Fairy a personalized note with these teeny tiny printables. And instead of leaving a dollar or a couple of coins in the pocket from the Tooth Fairy, leave some stickers or a coupon for a fun activity.

Safe Keeping

Safe Keeping

Keep all of those lost teeth safe and sound inside a special bag. This is a fun project to make with your kids as they await the magical fairy. They can hang their bag from their doorknob or tuck it safely under their pillow. Instead of giving traditional currency, try leaving coins from a different country. It will become a special treasure.
