Folklore from many parts of the world tells us that when children lose a baby tooth, they should place it underneath their pillow and the Tooth Fairy will visit while they are asleep, to take that lost tooth and leave a small payment, especially if those teeth have been kept very clean and shiny.
So what might the Tooth Fairy do with these teeth?
- Send them up into the night sky to become stars
- Use as bricks for their white Tooth Fairy Castle
- They grind the teeth to make magical fairy dust for all the fairies
- Make necklaces for all the other fairies
Or perhaps it’s a secret so that the Tooth Fairy cannot tell us?
