Magical Tooth Fairy Door

Before my daughter lost her first tooth I knew that I wanted to do something to make this experience magical.  I wasn’t quite sure what I would do until I was browsing instagram and saw Molly Moo’s darling little Fairy Door. It was childhood magic at it’s finest and I knew it was the perfect entrance for our fairy friend.

I ran to Hobby Lobby and found a dollhouse door. After painting it white I put it in an envelope along with a special note from the tooth fairy. I debated having the door just magically show up the night she lost her tooth- but then I decided it was more fun to set up the door together and build up the anticipation of her visit. We decided to set the door on the molding of Boo’s closet. This way, if she happened to change bedrooms, we could easily move the door. And it was out of reach of two mischevious dogs who have been known to be a bit destructive. 🙂 And then, after weeks of hanging loosely in her mouth, the tooth came out. I should mention that Boo actually pulled it out with a little support from her cousin via FaceTime. That night- after reading books from our Tooth Fairy bag and putting the tooth in a special pocket of a tooth pillow I made- the tooth fairy came to visit. When Boo woke up- she was surprised not only by the golden coin left in her tooth pillow but that the Tooth Fairy (lovingly named Sugar Plum) had sparkled her door with fairy glitter. Just part of the magic my friends. Hope this inspires the magic in being a mom!


We love our pink fairy door!

Mommy & Me Book: "I Can Do Many Things"

I have been HORRIBLE about blogging. Just busy being a mom :). I thought I would share a quick and easy Mommy & Me homemade book that we did a while ago. It showcases some simple things that my daughter can do to keep up her sweet little confident self. It would be fun to take pics of your kiddo doing different activities, like “I can play soccer”, or “I can swim”, etc… I just thought it would be fun to make it more an activity/learning scrapbook this time- next we will try it with photos! I want my Boo to know how amazing I think she is!

Happy Teaching!

my I CAN DO book

Like all parents, I want my daughter to have confidence in herself. I want her to go through life with the attitude that anything is possible and that she can do anything! Unfortunately I have already seen the beginnings of frustration when my Boo realizes that there are things that she can’t do (yet!). Dr. Michele Borba- an author, parenting expert, and educator- has outlined eight tips to cultivate that can-do attitude in our children. Two of those tips- Celebrate the special achievements and efforts and Accentuate the positive tie in directly to that confident attitude I want my three year old to develop…. as well as our latest Mommy & Me made book: My I Can Do Book! And the book is shaped like a can! 🙂
I just finished the template today and would love to share it with you all! Just right click on the image and save to your desktop. Or for larger files, click here for the cover and here for the blank pages. You will only need to print one cover, but print several of the blank pages. I plan on cutting out the can and binding the book on the side.
I hope this book will not only help my kiddo, but your little ones as well!
Happy Teaching!!
