I have a 6 year old who has been dying for his tooth to come out and it finally did on Sunday! I shared here at Babble/Disney how we got the “worst parents of the year award” from this experience.
Not too long ago, when we were inundated with dentist appointments, and I wrote about Tooth Fairy Tradition ideas here . In our casa, we celebrate the Tooth Fairy and Raton Perez. Raton Perez is the “tooth fairy” for many Latino countries around the world. He’s a mouse, actually a cute little mouse who takes your child’s tooth at night and brings them a coin. If you haven’t heard of Raton Pereze there’s a great book and movie, The Tooth Fairy Meets El Raton Perez by Rene Colato Lainez, that your kids will enjoy reading as they learn about Raton Perez in light of the familiar tooth fairy. It’s a fun read for children, it has inspired me to bridge both of our cultures with the tooth fairy tradition. We shared with our boys that “we” are the tooth fairy just like we did with Santa Claus but in both situations they still want to play along like there is a Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus and we don’t mind playing along with them.
When it finally dawned on me, that not everyone has the tooth fairy (duh), I wanted to make Tooth Fairy Receipt printables in different languages. One for those who have the Tooth Fairy and El Raton Perez (Latin America and Spain celebrate with El Raton Perez), one for those who just believe in the tooth fairy and one for the French who also have a mouse but his name is La Petite Souris. I know many countries just throw their tooth up on the roof or place it in interesting places so hopefully one of these printables will be able to work with your tradition.
