The next night she left this letter and her teensy tooth for the tooth fairy...
So, I forged another letter from Sparkle Fangs and left it with her $1.02 (an amount suggested by one of my friend's children as a fair price for a baby tooth) If you click on the image you should be able to see it large enough to read...
The dollar bill I folded into a little basket to hold the note, the two cents and some glitter. I used this really nice and easy to follow video instruction I found on Youtube.
I'm looking forward to trying more dollar bill origami as more of the kid's baby teeth gradually fall out. This one to make a ring looks cool.
Maybe they could each have their own tooth fairy from Tooth Traders Inc assigned to them. Not sure how I'm going to top Sparkle Fangs though. Ffion will want a girly named fairy for sure. Enamelina? Flouridella?
Both the older girls (who are now six and seven) are quite excited by it all and are keen to lose more teeth so they can write to the tooth fairy again. They did almost bust me though. Carys said "I think maybe you wrote the letter mum", but then when I showed her my smallest hand writing, she was all "Wow, you can't write that tiny at all, so it couldn't be you". Mwah haha haaa! Also, the tooth fairy can only seem to write upper case letter Rs. (and can't spell the word ballast). I wonder if she finished fairy high school? Maybe she just needs a good night's sleep ;)
In other news, the littlest poppet is now nine months old and still no teeth! We were wondering if her first one would make it's appearance as soon as her biggest sister lost her first one, just like Junie B Jones and her brother Ollie had happen, but nope, she's still all gummy and yummy.
