Here you will find the latest news, articles and whatever else we’ve got to tell you about the Tooth Fairy.
To give you the lowdown on what the Tooth Fairy does with all the teeth, we use ideas first written down during twentieth century in stories and letters by Leone Annabella Betts – the concept that the Tooth Fairy is the builder of Fairyland and uses the teeth to construct beautiful white fairy castles in the clouds. We like this idea because we think it appeals to boys as well as girls.
When she has time, Leone still helps the Tooth Fairy write and illustrate many of the notes and letters you will find here on the Rooftop Post site.
For little ones who love fairies, these easy-to-make garlands are a great way to make a fairy party look magical. They also look great in bedrooms… where the fairies can watch over you all night long.
To make this decoration, you will need:
How to Make Your Summer Sky Fairy Garland:
Decide how many fairies you need for your garland, then print them by clicking the fairy pictures below. (Each one will take you to a pdf file of that fairy pendant – three per page.)
Cut around the oval cloudscapes containing the fairies, so that you can fold each one to make a double sided paper pendant. Tip: You might find it easier to fold each pendant over the string/wool before you glue the two halves together, so that you don’t have to thread it through.
Stick the two halves of each pendant together but only glue about half or two thirds of the blank side, leaving a nice wide unglued bit at the top for your string/wool to go through. This makes it much easier to rethread if you want to rearrange anything – you won’t have to fiddle about trying to force your string through a very small space! Finally, you might like to know that when we made ours, we found wool much better than string – it just seemed better at holding each fairy in place.
Hang your magical string of fairies anywhere in your home or garden. Well done! If they’ve turned out anything like ours it was worth the effort – and we hope your children enjoy them. A final tip: once the glue was dry we trimmed each oval to make sure there were no bits of white paper from the other side showing around the edges.
There are many beautiful Tooth Fairy letters out there in the cloud and some of the loveliest ones are very small. Fairy-sized in fact. However, it can be rather fiddly to find a tiny pen (and perhaps your strongest reading glasses!) to write one yourself, so we thought we’d post a couple that are ready-written and free to print out. All you’ll need to make yours is a pair of scissors a dab of glue for the tiny envelope flaps.
So far, we’ve got two letters for a general tooth pick-up and one for a first tooth. Each comes with a matching envelope for a girl or a boy – whichever you want. (They’re all below.) If you’d rather print a normal-sized letter instead, you can still find a range of them on our Tooth Fairy notes page. We’ll be tracking how busy this page is and if it proves popular, we’ll make more miniature letters in the not-to-distant future.
Choose Your Printable Miniature Letter Below:
Just click on the picture of the Tooth Fairy letter you want and you’ll be taken to a PDF file to print and/or download. It’s all free but if you like these and want to support us, come back and see us soon, join our mailing list, or let a friend know. Happy crafting!
If you’re a bit of a fairy crafting fiend, dipping your tiny Tooth Fairy letter in ultra fine glitter before you put it in the envelope will make it sparkle beautifully when your child takes it out. The glitter won’t stick unless it’s the very fine kind though, like the glitter you see people using for nail art. The best place to find some is probably ebay. Also, beware, it can get everywhere and if you spill it on the carpet you’ll spot the occasional sparkle for months, in spite of your best efforts to vacuum it away. We recommend using it on a tray.
Don’t forget we also have a range of Tooth Fairy certificates you can print out – although they are human rather than fairy-sized!
Hello dear visitors! First of all a big thank you to all of you who have dropped us a line since the new year with your fairy requests and ideas. We LOVE to hear your thoughts. As you know, we don’t always have time to make everything we would want to, but we do try to answer everyone and create the printables that seem the most popular.
This month, the Tooth Fairy has been much in demand, so as you’ll see further down this page, we’ve done what we can. We’ve had a couple of people asking for other magical bits and pieces too, and they’re also below. We hope you enjoy them!

Remember that if your little one is fairy mad, we’ve got lots of other free resources too.
If you have a particular fairy printable you’d like to see on this site, you can always get in touch and tell us about it. Sometimes people use our Facebook page but we’re always happy for you to drop us a line directly on:
We can’t always create everything we’re asked to but we try to please as many people as possible, so ideas which we think would be useful to a large number of parents are likely to get priority. A big thanks once more to all who have already got in touch. x
Hello visitor! If you’re a regular looking for the latest kids’ printables we’ve created, they’re listed below.
1. Last Tooth Collection Notes
When it’s time for that very last tooth to be collected, these notes are the ones to use. There’s a version for a boy and one for a girl – they’re lovely way to let the Tooth Fairy say goodbye and wish your child well on the path to growing up completely.
2. Dragon Bravery Certificates
These are a bit of magic for any child who has been brave recently, for example by going to a new school, going to the dentist or achieving anything about which they were nervous. There’s one for a boy and one for a girl.
3. Lost Tooth Found Certificates
It’s so easy to lose a tooth when it first falls out and the last thing you want is a disappointed child worrying that the Tooth Fairy won’t find it! This certificate is a good way to set your child’s mind at ease. There’s one you can add a name and date to and a version you can print without personalisation (just in case you’re in a rush!)
4. Tooth Fairy Certificates for a Swallowed Tooth
You’d be surprised how often this happens. We created these certificates because we had a number of requests from parents whose children had accidentally swallowed a baby tooth. One is ready to personalise but if you’re in a rush and don’t want to bother, there’s also a version which doesn’t need you to add a name. You can just print it as is and pop it straight under your little one’s pillow.
5. Dolphin Chore Chart
A summery addition to our chore charts, great for children who like dolphins.
6. Cute Dragon Envelopes
These cute little dragon envelopes are ready to print and fold.
7. Mermaid Party Invitations
Lots of fun if you’re planning an under the sea party.
8. One Tooth Left to Lose Certificates
These certificates are a bit unusual in that they’re not to say thank you for a tooth. Instead, they are notes to leave before your child loses his or her last tooth. There’s one for a boy and one for a girl. The idea is that the Tooth Fairy wants to let your child know that he or she has one tooth left and that she is looking forward to a final visit one day soon, to pick it up. It’s a nice way to begin rounding off the visits from the Tooth Fairy, now that your little one is growing up.
Ah, the magic of fairies! Whether it’s a snow fairy flying in and out of the snowflakes on a dark winter’s night or a summer fairy sleeping the afternoon away in the shady petals of a rose, every season has these magical creatures wound up within the stories we tell.
There’s the Tooth Fairy, of course, a fairy of all seasons. Then there’s the Dummy Fairy, who makes just one brief visit in a lifetime. (Or at least that’s the idea… unless there’s a dummy addiction lapse!) Beyond that, most of us have heard of Cicely Mary Barker’s Flower Fairies – here at Rooftop Post we particularly love those – and in the midst of our modern times the Birthday Fairy seems to be becoming more and more popular.
Fairies these days come in all shapes and sizes and styles too. Some fairies are funny and some are beautiful. Some are tubby, some are so delicate they look as though the smallest breath of wind would blow them away. We like them all and try to represent as many different types as we can within our resources. So, without further ado, for those of you looking for free printables which encapsulate the magic of fairies, our favourites from this site are below.
We’ve been updating our Tooth Fairy and Birthday Fairy notes this week and we thought you might find it useful to see a quick list of which notes are brand new.
We’ll continue adding notes from both these magical characters whenever we can. If you enjoy a particular note, please consider liking it using the social media buttons (Facebook, Twitter etc) at the bottom of the relevant page. This helps us work out what’s popular and what to make more of. Thanks. x
We’ve called this one “Building a Fairy Path” and it is all about how the Tooth Fairy uses the tooth she has just collected (from your child) to help make a white path into a magical forest. The path is much-needed because the trees of the forest have a habit of moving around a lot which makes it very easy for travellers to get lost.
We think this letter is delightful – it’s packed with the usual magic and cute illustrations. Another thumbs up from us to the creator of our letters, Leone Annabella Betts. Like all our letters from the Tooth Fairy, “Building a Fairy Path” is suitable for any child who has lost a tooth and is due a visit. As many of you already know, we ask that you share a link to the letter on Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn before downloading it. Thank you in advance to all those who do this – spreading the word is what keeps our little website going.
People often wonder which of our Tooth Fairy resources are the most popular… and of course, so do we.
Well, we’ve consulted our stats and here they are, our top ten most popular Tooth fairy printables of all time (or at least for as long as they’ve been around). They’re in reverse order. Enjoy.
10. At number ten is this lovely little Tooth Fairy note, “Thanks for Being Asleep!” We can see why it’s popular, it has a charming turn of phrase and obviously, it’s always good to reinforce the importance of being asleep when the Tooth fairy comes round.
8. It turns out our Tiny Tooth Envelopes are at number eight, which we’re quite surprised about as they are a brand new resource. The idea here is that you print and make two tiny envelopes, one for a tooth and one for a coin. You give the first to your little one for his or her tooth, then you secretly replace it with a matching envelope containing a coin. In our house, it produces squeals of glee!
6. Our sixth most popular Tooth Fairy printable is this Tooth Fairy Note Envelope. We love this resource, but those Tooth Fairies among you who have taken the trouble to read through this list might like to know a secret. The illustrator who donated it has just designed another one – and you can find it free here. (Shhhh!)
5. Another Tooth Fairy note comes in at number five: “Thank You for Another Tooth“. An obvious choice perhaps, but from our point of view we’re always happy to see we’ve got it right and created something useful.
4. Our “Award for Losing Your Second Tooth” is at number four, perhaps unsurprisingly considering number three. (We’re glad you’re coming back to us for more!) Tooth Fairy certificates are always something we’re looking for more ideas for, so we may well now do a couple more for fourth and fifth teeth.
3. At number three is our “Award for Losing Your Very First Tooth“. This little certificate has long been popular and is a lovely way to commemorate that special first tooth losing moment. If you’re using this certificate, don’t forget that there’s also an editable pdf version of it, which you can type your child’s name straight onto.
2. This one was a bit of a surprise: “Sorry I Forgot to Pick Up Your Tooth!” It’s another Tooth Fairy note of course, and we only created it as a just in case resource. Goes to show you never can tell what Tooth Fairies may need. (And if you’re a Tooth Fairy who has forgotten to pick up a tooth, take heart, you’re definitely not alone!)
1. And finally, at number one is the all time favourite – our plain old “Thank You for Your Tooth” note. As far as most Tooth Fairies go, it seems simple is best.
