Why Write Tooth Fairy Letters

For busy moms, it might appear that a letter for the tooth fairy is an additional task. But when you think about it, you are actually helping your child celebrate an important event.

How to Write a Tooth Fairy Letters?

Prepare the materials

You cannot write a letter from the tooth fairy using a plain bond paper. Remember, the key word here is “fairy.” There has to be some flair in the letter that you are writing – from the paper that you are using down to the ink that you are using.

Choose papers that are pastel in colors – light blue, lilac, powder blue, and of course, pink – in every shade. As for the ink, try a number of combinations with the paper – lilac paper with pink ink, blue paper pink ink, or pink paper with blue ink.

Don’t forget that fairies “bedazzle” their letters. Add some more colors and razzle-dazzle. You can sprinkle glitters or even put some drawings on the sides of the letters. You can use markers, colored pens, and even stickers. Creativity is key.


In composing the letter, you need to release your inner fairy. This usually means the letter needs to be in a friendly and fun tone.

If you lack certain flare in letter writing, you can search the internet for the most appropriate letter for your child.

Mind Your Handwritingletters to the tooth fairy

Needless to say, you need to change your handwriting because your child might recognize it. Ask someone else to write it or add some curls and curves to some of the characters in the letters that you are writing. Just make sure that it’s appearance is the farthest from your handwriting.

Make It Personal

It is best to make the letter more relatable. Include his experiences on how the tooth got lost such as his experience on the dentist chair or having to pull out their own teeth.

You can also use the letter to remind your child about how to properly take care of their teeth. Just be careful not to oversell it because you don’t want the tooth fairy to sound like a nagging fairy.
