Has the tooth fairy been to your house yet? We decided to make a special place for the tooth fairy to come visit since Big Brother has been worried that she wouldn’t be able to get his tooth out from below his pillow. I wanted something that was small, sturdy, and could easily be stored without getting wrecked easily. So they each made a tooth fairy box craft!
I ordered the kids a Melissa & Doug wooden flower chest craft kit. Looking back now, I wish that I would have ordered one of the flower ones and one of the heart craft kits – it would have been fun to have them each make a different one.

Paint the flower chest with the paints provided. Don’t forget to cover your work area first! Then, my kids used the glitter pens to paint glitter everywhere so that the whole thing sparkled. You will want to let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Once dry, Big Brother added the words ‘Tooth Fairy’ to the side of his flower chest using the letter stickers.
From the Fairy Garden Stamp Set, we used the moon, stars, flower, and fairy stamps to decorate the inside. When it was dried, I coated the whole thing with Mod Podge to give it a nice finished look. It also sealed on the stickers. This part is optional.
The kit came with flower gems and a mini glue pen which the kids used to finish decorating their tooth fairy chests. I love the little glue pen since it’s so easy for them to squirt.
Big Brother can’t wait to use it the next time a tooth falls out!
Do you do the traditional ‘under the pillow’ way or do your kids have a fun place for the tooth fairy to look for the teeth and leave a little surprise?
