This special day is all about caring for those pearly whites and making dental health fun. To celebrate the Tooth Fairy’s favorite day, there are a few ways to make the day extra special for young kids.
- Read a Book About Dental Health: There are many stories about the Tooth Fairy and dental health available at your local library which will make for a fun story time activity. The Tooth Fairy’s favorite book that she recommends is The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist.
- Play a Dental Health Activity: An easy and fun activity that focuses on dental health habits such as brushing your teeth and flossing is a great way to get kids engaged and excited about caring for their smiles. We recommend setting up Play-Doh flossing practice – you can learn more about how to set up this activity with your kids here.
- Make Healthy Snacks: Did you know that there are eight teaspoons of sugar in an eight-ounce serving of chocolate milk? That’s a lot of sugar! Make the day fun and healthy by preparing healthy snacks together by making a hummus dip and vegetable sticks and banana sushi – there are tons of tasty healthy recipes available online.
- Read a Special Letter from the Tooth Fairy: The Tooth Fairy wants to make sure that every child enjoys caring for their smiles, and she’s ready to send them some words of encouragement via snailmail. If your child recently lost their first tooth or visited the dentist, sign up your child to receive their very own letter from the Tooth Fairy here.
- Attend a Tooth Fairy Experience Event: The Tooth Fairy will be making some special visits to libraries and classrooms in the week leading up to National Tooth Fairy Day– check out our calendar to find an event near you.
