EASY TO MAKE TOOTH FAIRY MONEY!
I had seen this really cute idea making glitter Tooth Fairy money - using hair spray and glitter. So when my dear daughter lost her top front right tooth with the left tooth wiggling to freedom with each new bite, I immediately scrambled to work!
Imagine the following sequence if you will:
I walk to the bathroom as soon as Gabi is asleep to look for hair spray. (Being the mother of a 6-year old girl, I always know where to find glitter, but not hairspray.)
"SHOOT! I don't have any hair spray! Is there anything under this cabinehh... wait, what's this? Halloween GLITTER Hair spray??"
"Aren't I just gonna sprinkle glitter on this thing anyway?"
"WELL WHADDAYA KNOW - AN ALL IN ONE SOLUTION!"
TO MAKE YOU'LL NEED:
1. A Dollar Bill (or whatever denomination your personal Tooth Fairy deems appropriate)
2. Glitter Hairspray (found readily available around Halloween Time)
1. Lay down a newspaper or cardboard, so you don't glitter up your workspace.
2. Spray lightly one side of the dollar bill, then flip over and repeat.
3. Hang dollar(s) to dry
4. Once dry, fold up to distribute.
5. Patiently wait for them to wake up, then watch their eyes sparkle at the sight of
Tooth Fairy money!
PS - Works well as "North Pole/Santa Claus money, too!"
I find myself telling my daughter "It's Mommy Magic" when I do a crafty little fix or creation that she usually is in awe of. (which I honestly LOVE) Sometimes they're simple little fixes like hot-gluing a headband back together or using nail-polish remover to clean up white patent-leather shoes.
Often times it's more complicated, like whipping up an 11th-hour Halloween costume because of a cold-front coming in.
And just sometimes, I even compliment myself with a little "Mommy Magic" nod of approval after I've done something I'm particularly proud of.
I love being a Mom!
