Did you know that February 28 is National Tooth Fairy Day? The national observance — which happens to fall at the very end of National Children’s Dental Health Month — aims to help kids feel less confused about and afraid of losing their baby teeth.
Here’s how to celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day in your home:
1. Grab a tooth-friendly snack and get the family together to watch “The Tooth Fairy,” a family-friendly film starring Dwayne Johnson, Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews. They’ll love this modern story about everyone’s favorite tooth-collector!
2. Break out the arts and crafts! There are so many fun tooth-related projects and activities you and your children can enjoy. We love this easy activity, which involves yarn, paper, glue and cotton balls. If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can even make a Tooth Fairy pillow.
3. Read an oral health-themed bedtime story. There are so many great ones available! Here are a few we recommend: Dear Tooth Fairy, The Night Before the Tooth Fairy and Loose Tooth (My First I Can Read). Which is your favorite?
No matter how you choose to celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day, the important thing is that you talk openly with your child about his or her oral health. After all, healthy habits start young!
