  • $2, and a cute little thing for the first tooth ( I do this on all the teeth) take your dollar and spray it with hairspray then sprinkle glitter on the dollar and it stick to the hair spray. Fairy Dust! My sons tooth fairy leaves green dust. When he fell on the stairs and knocked his teeth funky the Dentist removed them so he got $5 for them. My friends daughter get $20 plus hair clips or other accessories. My sons Fairy is cheap.

  • We did a dollar. Now I saw on pinterest that you can make 'fairy money' using glitter and hair spray! ::sigh:: If only I had seen it 4 years ago...

  • i would do a dollar. some people go nuts and leave 20s and stuff.. thats a pretty rich tooth fairy in my opinion. I think change is a little too small these days. they cant buy anything for a quarter... and my kids have piggy banks where they stick spare change they find around the house.. so to me a whole dollar is cool and different from the normal coins.. PLUS they can use it at the dollar store on a little toy of their choice...

  • $1.25 because Grandpa opened his mouth during the first wiggly tooth and mentioned it should be more than what I used to get due to inflation.

  • $5.00 for first tooth & $2.00 for each tooth after.

    My daughter recently just lost a tooth--except she swallowed it. So, we left a note for the tooth fairy letting her know the situation & my daughter got $1.00 because there was no actual tooth. :)
