Whether it is your child’s first loose tooth or their tenth, losing a tooth is always an exciting experience for kids. To you, missing teeth is a telltale sign that your precious little baby is growing up. But to your kids, losing a tooth or two is the perfect chance to get a fun little visit from the tooth fairy. Typically, the mommy and daddy tooth fairy process is super simple. A tooth is exchanged for a little money and everyone is happy. If your family’s tooth fairy is looking to get a little more creative, however, these are some pretty great ideas.
