Tooth Fairy Gift Ideas

We are continuing with Tooth Fairy week here as the National Tooth Fairy Day approaches! (it's Saturday!)  Today I am sharing lots of fun ideas for things the Tooth Fairy might leave in exchange for a sparkly white tooth!  Of course the going rate varies, and has gone up dramatically since I was a kid but with ideas like this, your child is sure to love the magic of the Tooth Fairy!

There are so many cute ways to fold $1 origami!  Even if your child is just getting $1 for their tooth, wouldn't it be even more awesome if it was shaped like an elephant?!  Or you could make the little money box and put a few coins in it too!  Such a cute way to give money. Check out these cute Origami ideas from Origami Resource Center.

The Tooth Fairy could also leave these adorable tooth receipts by A-manda Creation when she picks up a tooth!  There's space to write in the child's name, age and date and it's signed by the Tooth Fairy herself!


The Tooth Fairy might also leave money with some "fairy dust" still on it!  Just a little bit of glue and glitter and it's magical. You could also use glitter hair spray for this effect. This dust idea by TenKidsandaDog is too cute!

There may be times when the Tooth Fairy wants to leave a note for your child.  Perhaps it's to congratulate them on not having any cavities. Or maybe she needs to encourage better brushing.  Well she can leave her note on her own personal stationary by A-manda Creation!  It's blank so she can change the message each time.  I even saw a tooth fairy who once left a note that the room was so messy she couldn't get to the tooth and she would come back when it was cleaned up! (Genius if you ask me!)


Some other fun items the Tooth Fairy could leave:
Gold Dollars, these are a favorite in our house, they are GOLD coins!  My boys go crazy for those!
A new tooth brush, maybe a fun spinny one they don't usually get
A new book about brushing teeth, or another book they would like
Stickers!

Speaking of stickers, I still remember one particular Tooth Fairy visit from my childhood.  The Tooth Fairy left me stickers, but not just any stickers.  They were fancy stickers.  They were scratch and sniff!  The theme of the sticker pack?  Fish.  Yeah apparently the Tooth Fairy just thought they were cute and didn't realize that when you scratched them they were actually going to small like dead fish.  They were so disgusting. To this day I still remember those gross stickers.  And that makes me think, maybe they weren't so bad if they were something I am still able to remmber 25-30 years later right?

So that got me thinking, my crazy gross boys would probably LOVE smelly stickers, so I did a quick search and what do you know! Amazon carries them! They sell stinky scratch and sniff stickers!  Now I am not saying the Tooth Fairy should leave these, but ours just might in an effort to be remembered forever!!!

Tooth Fairy Holder Ideas

Did you know that Saturday, August 22nd is National Tooth Fairy Day?  This week we will be sharing all sorts of fun Tooth Fairy inspiration to help you celebrate losing teeth!  When children lose their teeth it is such a fun and exciting time for them.  This week I will share with your ways to make it more special, and more magical. They are only little once let's make the most of it!

Today I have some fun ideas for ways to hold those teeth once they are lost and they are waiting for the tooth fairy to come and collect them.  Take a look!
Here's a fun project you can create together with your child. A tooth tin.  Simply print out the pieces, cut them out and glue them to an altoid tin. It's a fun activity you and your child can do together to make losing a tooth even more special!

You could try your hand at making this adorable felt tooth pillow by red roof patterns to hold lost teeth ready for collection.



Here in our house we have a purple fangdangle. The boys love to get this out and hang it on their bed post when they lose a tooth!

I love this simple pocket by SometimesHomemade.com for holding lost teeth. Those things are SO tiny and easy to lose, this is a great way to keep them safe until the tooth fairy arrives!

There are SO many fun ideas for holding teeth!  Stop by my pinterest board to see even more ideas for Tooth Fairy week!

Fun S'more Recipes

This week we have been celebrating S'mores! That ooey, gooey goodness is sure to make any party a hit. Today I have found a few of my favorite S'more Flavors and want to share the recipes with you. Who is ready for some yummy S'mores??
Check out this amazing recipe for S'mores Crescent Rolls byLemon Tree Dwelling...so yummy yet hearty and perfect when you aren't fireside!
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls (8 count)
¼ c. Nutella
64 mini marshmallows
40 chocolate chips
2 graham crackers

Instructions
Unroll crescent dough into triangles.
Top each with 1 tsp. Nutella, 8 mini marshmallows, 5 chocolate chips, and ¼ graham cracker (broken into pieces).
Carefully roll dough into crescent shape, starting at the wide end and working your way to the point.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Drizzle with remaining Nutella (you may have to heat it slightly to make it the right consistency).

How about this recipe for Chocolate S'mores Cookie Bars by the Baker Upstairs. A wonderful way to combine the crunch of graham cracker and the gooeyness of marshmallows into an easy to eat cookie bar.
1 sleeve graham crackers, more or less as needed
1 stick butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (I did mine in the microwave at 50% power)
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cake flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup miniature marshmallows

for topping:
2 graham crackers, broken up into small pieces
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 Hershey's candy bars, broken into squares

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x 13 pan with tin foil or parchment paper. Make a single layer of graham crackers covering the bottom of the pan, breaking the crackers as needed to make them fit. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars. Mix in melted chocolate, then mix in egg and egg yolk until just combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, then add to wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in remaining chocolate chips and 1/3 cup mini marshmallows. Spread cookie dough over the graham crackers. (To be honest, this part was a little frustrating... I think the best way to do it is to scoop cookie dough evenly over the crackers, and then use your hands to pat the dough into an even layer.)

Place in the oven and bake six minutes. Remove and sprinkle the dough evenly with graham cracker pieces, marshmallows, and candy bar squares. Use your hands to gently press the toppings into the dough slightly. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes, or until marshmallows are lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool 30 minutes before removing from the pan. I cut mine into 18 squares, and they were the perfect size for me.

And last but not least, check out these Vegan and Gluten Free S'mores Cupcakes by Pickels and Honey. How cool is that? Not only can you enjoy the taste of S'mores but you do it in a fairly healthy way for those families that may need Vegan and Gluten Free!
For the Vegan Buttermilk:
½ cup + 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk (I used homemade unsweetened almond milk)
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
For the Cupcakes:
½ cup sorghum flour
½ cup brown rice flour
⅓ cup coconut sugar
¼ cup freshly ground flax seeds
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted, plus additional for greasing the pan
½ teaspoon vanilla bean powder
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon almond extract
For the Topping:
½ cup vegan chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coconut oil
For the Garnish:
1 vegan marshmallow per cupcake

Instructions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease a cupcake pan.
Prepare the vegan buttermilk by combining the non-dairy milk with the apple cider vinegar. Whisk well and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to curdle.
In a large bowl, mix together the sorghum and brown rice flours, coconut sugar, ground flax, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
Mix in the applesauce, coconut oil, vanilla bean powder, cinnamon, and almond extract, then stir in the buttermilk mixture.
Let the batter sit for 5 minutes to allow the coconut flour and flax to absorb the wet ingredients. The mixture should be very thick.
Using an ice cream scoop, evenly distribute the batter into the prepared baking pan.
Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the cupcakes cool in the pan before topping.
While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate topping by microwaving the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a shallow microwave-safe dish for 30 second intervals, making sure to stir them well (I did two 30 second intervals to melt mine completely).
Take the completely cooled cupcakes and dip each into the melted chocolate. Using a shallow dish will make this easier and keep the cupcakes intact.
Toast the vegan marshmallows over an open flame (I used my stovetop) and top each of the cupcakes with a marshmallow.
Enjoy immediately for a messy, gooey marshmallow, melted chocolate s'mores experience!
