When a tooth fairy doesn't have cash on hand or forgot to pick up a present in exchange for a tooth, he or she can use this printable letter to offer the child an IOU for a later date.
Text of the letter:
Oops! I flew all the way to your house from my fairy castle (it was a fun and very beautiful trip, but it takes a long time!), and I realized when I arrived that I forgot to bring my present for you!
I'm very sorry! I know you must be disappointed not to have a prize in exchange for your beautiful tooth. I completely understand. I have left your tooth so you can hold onto it for another day while I go back and get the special gift I had laid out for you. Please place your tooth and this letter under your pillow when you're ready for me to visit again. I'll make sure I double-check my belongings before I leave this time!
Thanks for being such an amazing and patient kid. I can't wait to come back for that excellent tooth!
