Our house is keeping the Tooth Fairy busy these days! Annika is missing 3 of her top teeth and a couple on the bottom. Bree and Kaleb both have wiggly teeth. There is nothing cuter than a toothless grin for school pictures! Since the tooth fairy has been frequenting our house, we decided to create oil pastel fairies.
I am not very sentimental, and I have brought very few of my childhood things into our home. However, this sweet little Tooth Fairy was a must. It was hand made my by Aunt, and I loved using it. It has a special tiny lace pocket that holds your tooth or the Tooth Fairies gift. I’m sure when my Aunt was making these special Tooth Fairies, she never thought that my kids would be using them too. Love it!
We seem to be having lots of funny discussions about the Tooth Fairy recently. I decided to have the kids draw what they thought the Tooth Fairy looked like. I was immediately asked “Should we just draw Dad wearing a tutu?” Ha, I love my kids! They know that the Tooth Fairy is not real, but they love the tradition…OK maybe the money that she brings! After a bit of discussion, we decided that they would draw their ideal Tooth Fairy. We used textured black card stock and oil pastels to create these unique Tooth Fairies.
Bree’s oil pastel Tooth Fairy: My Tooth Fairy is beautiful. She wears a tooth necklace around her neck to collect the children’s teeth in. My Fairy has large wings like a butterfly to help her fly to everyone’s house. Her favorite color purple and carries a special wand that has a crown on top.
Kaleb’s oil pastel Tooth Fairy: My fairy no longer needs wings to get around. He flies through the air with the latest style of rocket boots,. He prides himself on being faster than any Fairy around. He wears a silver Olympic medal around his neck and carries a toothbrush wand.
Annika’s oil pastel Tooth Fairy: My Tooth Fairy loves to be colorful. She wears a green striped dress, blue sparkly high-heel shoes and a purple bow in her hair. Her wings are just as colorful as she is. She carries a sparkly tooth wand and is always smiling.
I love kids imaginations. These turned out so cute. If you know my kids, these fairies totally represent them. Bree loves butterflies, organization and wants to always be matching. Kaleb likes inventing things, he enjoys sports and loves competition. Annika loves everything colorful, she almost never matches (unless I make her go change) and high-heels and accessories are very important to her. I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my kids and their unique personalities.
