1. Craft a Flying Tooth Fairy Pillow
Hang this flying tooth fairy pillow on a bedpost doorknob to prepare for the "real" tooth fairy's evening visit.
Materials needed: paper, pencil, white felt, additional felt in two different colours of your child's choosing, fibrefill, a ribbon, glitter pen, fabric glue, and thread (if you plan to sew the pillow)
Step One: On a sheet of paper, draw a tooth pattern about 20 centimetres in length. Then, on another piece (or pieces) of paper, draw a fairy wing pattern.
Step Two: Make a tooth by first laying the two white felt pieces on top of each other. Place the tooth pattern on top and cut a tooth out of the felt.
Step Three: Make the wings by first laying two pieces of a colourful felt on top of each other. Place the tooth pattern on top and cut a tooth out of the felt.
Step Four: Tuck a wing between the two layers of the tooth felt on each side. Sew all around the tooth, leaving the top open. If you prefer not to sew, you can use fabric glue.
Step Five: Stuff the tooth shape with fibrefill. Then, insert the ribbon's ends into the tooth opening to make a handle; stitch or glue the tooth opening shut.
Step Six: Make a patch pocket on the tooth pillow by cutting out a square from a colourful piece of felt.
Leaving room for your child's name above the pocket, glue the patch pocket on the outside of the tooth pillow. Ensure leaving the top open with enough space for placement of the tooth and the magical reward.
Step Seven: Use a glitter pen to write your child's name above the patch pocket. You can also cut out your child's name from fabric to glue above the pocket.
When the time comes, place the tooth in the patch pocket and wait for the wonder.
