If the Tooth Fairy has no cash on hand, they can always use this printable letter to explain that the child is getting a special gift instead.
Text of the letter:
Oh my, what a beautiful tooth! Thank you for leaving it under your pillow for me. Now, normally I like to leave money in exchange for teeth, but today I thought I would do something a little different because you’re such a great kid.
Instead of money, I’ve left you a very special gift! I really hope you like it. We keep these at the fairy castle, and I thought it would be fun for you to have a little fairy magic at home, too! I hope you think of me whenever you look at it.
Thanks again for the wonderful tooth, and remember to brush and floss every day!
