5 Tooth Fairy Traditions You’ll Love

We all remember the first time we lost a tooth. Such a victory! And then, there’s the sweet anticipation of putting it under your pillow to wake up in the morning to whatever the Tooth Fairy has brought you that night. It’s an exciting time in every child’s life. In celebration of National Tooth Fairy Day, we’ve collected some unique and fun Tooth Fairy traditions that will make that first experience with the Tooth Fairy or tenth extra special.

Make it really official with these Tooth Fairy Invoices.  Have your child fill out and then slip it in the envelope with the missing tooth. Free printable kits can be found on How Does She.

If you’re teaching your little one to save those Tooth Fairy earnings, this Tooth Fairy bank is a must have. It has 20 individual slots for each tooth lost. (zulily.com)

This nifty DIY Tooth Fairy pocket from Craft, Interrupted uses a jean pocket to stash the goodies. How clever!

 

Is the Tooth Fairy sometimes forgetful? Let your little one rest easy that this time, the Tooth Fairy will not forget to leave money with this Tooth Fairy Spray that signals the Tooth Fairy to come right away. (zulily.com)

#Throwback(toschool)Thursday

It may have been a while since we here at zulily have had the joyful experience of getting on our brand new outfit for the first day back to school, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relish in it just the same. In the spirit of all the kiddos getting ready to go back to school, we’re celebrating #TBT with our own version, #ThrowbackToSchool. Join in by posting your throwback photos from your first day back to school and tag #ThrowbackToSchool and #zulily. We’ll share our favorites!

Back to School Shots #yayfirstday

 

We all know how important that first day of school is to your kids. They’ve styled their favorite outfit, decorated their binders in preparation, and have probably put in a special request for a first day dessert in their lunch. 

But, before they hop on that school bus, you’ve got to snap the perfect first day picture to add to your collection. Share these fabulous first-day photos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #yayfirstday and #zulily. Every few weeks we will select a few of our favorites as “star student of the day” and share these photos on Facebook and Instagram. We will also choose a photo every week to include in our Facebook cover photo!
