The Twirling Tooth Fairy- Part 2

A few posts ago I introduced you to the Twirling Tooth fairy. The original idea came from How Does She. We have since lost a total of three teeth. I am going to show you how to make your tooth fairy water sparkle.

What you need:

2 glasses that are exactly the same


Food coloring

Wilton Pearl Dust for cakes (it’s $3 and you can find it at Joann’s in the cake decorating section. I picked up gold)

In case you have never seen the Pearl Dust before I took a picture of mine so you know what to look for. It’s perfect for adding that extra touch to your cup of water. Just like Tink’s fairy dust.

I had this pearl dust on hand to paint Easter eggs with and when Thing 1’s first tooth came out I knew I had to use it to give her water that extra sparkle! If you want to take it as far as I did then use glitter in the same color and sprinkle that all over the window sill, the carpet, the dresser and on your Thing’s bed.

When your Thing looses the tooth you will use one glass of water to put the tooth in for the tooth fairy. You want to use a glass that you have two of because you want to be able to do a switcharoo with the tooth fairy water. My Thing is a light sleeper (which is why the tooth under a pillow thing would never work for us). I like to have my water ready so I can just run in, throw the glitter all around, set out the money and certificates, switch the water and leave. It’s like a sting operation.

Fill your glass with water and add your food coloring. You can add as much or as little as you like.

Stir it to make sure you got the color you want and add some pearl dust. A little goes a long way with the pearl dust. After you add it stir it really well.

Perfecto! You have just made the cutest glass of water ever seen!

After the very first Twirling Tooth Fairy came I was wondering how I was going to find out what color Tooth Fairies she wanted to see most. I started exploring the internet looking for something to help me out. Then I found this:


At some point during the day after the tooth has come out, this note is slid under her pillow for her to find at bedtime. She marks which fairy she wants to visit and I color the water that fairy’s color. Blue was for Amarina and this last time she picked Nute the surfer!

Click on the link to get your  Ultimate Tooth Fairy Print Out . They send it to your email after you enter the child’s name and you can print it from there.

With the money and the foreign coin, Thing 1 also receives tooth fairy certificates.

I found the coupons on here. Just print them, fill it out and sign. I have given one for each tooth after the first tooth came out.

The very first tooth received extra attention and she received a special certificate, a letter from the Tooth Fairy and extra money for that tooth.

Go here to print a letter from the Tooth Fairy for the first tooth lost.

Here is a link to the one that I used: Tooth Fairy Certificate but you can go here to get others with different color robes or dresses.

And that is all the behind the scenes information I have on the Twirling Tooth Fairy and how I make the magic happen. Hope this helps all the Tooth Fairies out there! Remember, it’s over if you wake the Thing 🙂


The Twirling Tooth Fairy

We were sitting at the dinner table last night and Thing 1 was eating her dinner. She looks up and says, “I really don’t want my corn on the cob.” I looked at her plate and looked back at her, “Maybe if you eat it a tooth will fall out.” She has been one of the last of all of her friends to lose a tooth. It’s a weekly topic of conversation. I have told her all along if she eats a lot of apples and carrots it may help loosen her teeth. She has eagerly indulged without any success. She looks at me with these, “I’m starting not to believe you” eyes, takes a huge bite of corn and as she is chewing she says, “That hurt!” While she is talking with a mouth full of corn I notice her bottom tooth looks a little weird. “Your tooth!!! It’s loose!”  That was it. After a few phone calls to her favorite people exclaiming her excitement I told her to go ahead and pull it out if she wanted. She was so determined to lose her first tooth that she just yanked it right out. I was a bit surprised that she did it. Thing 2 at first was horrified that her tooth was coming out of her mouth. When he realized that there was money involved he quickly started trying to yank his teeth out of his mouth. Before bed I quickly googled different types of tooth fairies. I wanted to invite a special tooth fairy to come and visit us. It’s not every day a tooth fairy comes to visit our house. I came across The Twirling Tooth Fairy and knew that this was exactly the one that we would invite.

We wanted a really pretty sparkly tooth fairy so we decided if we put out lots of pretty things maybe we would get a really glittery one.


Her tooth is at the very bottom of the glass (the red dot).


Early this morning around 7am a very excited Thing 1 came bouncing into our room. “She came, she came!”

The man and I walked into her room to see that The Twirling Tooth Fairy had left dust ALL OVER the place. She had a party while Thing 1 was asleep. There was fairy dust on the carpet, the window sill, her dresser and her bed. She was covered head to toe in fairy dust.

There were even little slipper prints left behind revealing that she was small.


She got $2.00 plus a coin from Mexico. Her tooth fairy left her a certificate, a letter, a coloring page and a piece of sugarless gum. It has been a very exciting morning in our house. When Thing 2 woke up he was so amazed by all the dust that her fairy left. Thing 1 was super excited that she wore a pink dress last night. I asked her how many tooth fairies she thought there was. She believes there are probably 80 of them. All of them with a different color dress. It was our first visit from the Twirling Tooth Fairy. We simply can not wait to have many more!
