How to Write Tooth Fairy Letters

A visit from the Tooth Fairy is one of the most magical moments in our childhood and this week we share how to write tooth fairy letters.

As a parent, we know how special it is when our child loses their first tooth. It’s a milestone that we often treasure and even save in a memory book right next to their first hair clippings.

A child loses 20 teeth as they grow, so that is 20 potential Tooth Fairy Visits. 

One way to add a personal touch when a tooth fairy visits is with Tooth Fairy Letters. But often we are at a loss as to what to say in a letter like this. So, we’d like to share some thoughts on how to write tooth fairy letters which may help when you have a wobbly tooth in your house.

How to Write Tooth Fairy Letters

  1. Personalise It

    It’s always nice to see your own name written down, it’s personal and meaningful. How much more thrilling for a child to see their name on a personal letter from the Tooth Fairy – that the Tooth Fairy actually knows their name.

  2. Include Details that no one Else Would Know

    As well as using your child’s name, also use other details about them that no one else knows. This will encourage and make your child feel special. After all that’s what a visit from the Tooth Fairy is all about.

    For example, compliment the quality of their tooth, say something about how good they have been brushing their teeth, or include how tidy their room is (which makes it easy for the tooth fairy to collect their tooth).

  3. Be Secretive

    Firstly, if you have an inquisitive child who notices everything, make sure they don’t recognise your hand writing.

    You could either type the letter or write it in a style that your child won’t recognise. Try writing with your left hand or ask a friend to write the note for you. 





    To solve this problem and help with the “what do I write” challenge, we have designed some beautiful, printed Tooth Fairy Letters to make your child’s tooth fairy visits something encouraging and special.

    See below for a description of these.

  4. Make the Tooth Collection Place Easy

    Make sure the “Tooth Fairy” is able to collect the tooth easily. Leaving it under a pillow is quite tricky to collect without disturbing sleep and being spotted.

    We believe one of the most perfect places for the Tooth Fairy to visit, is through a fairy door. Tooth Fairy’s are very familiar with a fairy door and know exactly where they are. They can quickly and quietly collect the tooth from the little doorstep, leave a treat or note secretly and fly off again without being noticed.

  5. Keep it Short and Sweet

    Younger children need a little letter that is simple to understand.

    For older kids you can include more details, but still try to keep it short because you don’t want to risk giving too much away! Remember, the older a child gets, the trickier it can be making the note seem authentic.
