Tooth fairy jar

Just found this great idea from Lost Button Studio today and think it’s so smart! I’m far from having kids, so I never thought about the difficulty in finding a tooth in the middle of the night, replacing it with money all while not waking up your kid. Mom, how the heck did you do it??

You can click to the link for her instructions, but basically you fill a jar with water and drop the tooth in with your child. During the night you drop in a few drops of food coloring, maybe some glitter and take the tooth. When your kid wakes up,  there’s their cue that the tooth fairy has come!

I’ll definitely be using this idea instead of the old school method

p.s. Now that I think of it, what the heck do you do with all of the baby teeth once you collect them? I have a lot of questions to be answered before I’m ready for little ones 🙂

    that’s really cute. my sister & i used to leave “sign here” notes for the tooth fairy. i remember jill (my dad) and glenda (my mom). they did a good job at disguising their handwriting though!! haha. but still–i love the food coloring/glitter idea.

    our kindergarten teacher made us little pillows (about 5″ x 5″) with a tooth-shaped pocket on the front for our tooth. Mom actually saved all our teeth. She taped them to an index card for each of us and put the date beneath each tooth. Kind of creepy, but also nostalgic, I guess. She finally showed them to us long after we’d outgrown the idea of the toothfairy.
