Today's theme is all about the Tooth Fairy!  The mysterious creature who comes at night to take our baby teeth and leaves money in it's place. 

Loosing a tooth is an important passage that every child goes through.  It seems every family has a different tradition concerning what and how much the tooth fairy leaves behind.  But every child gets excited about the arrival of the tooth fairy.

There aren't many simple songs about the tooth fairy so I wrote and performed one that everyone can learn and sing.

Carolyn, from Wise Owl Factory has written a delightful review of the book, April and Esme:  Tooth Fairies by Bob Graham and has made a great tooth fairy power point and free tooth display pdf for classrooms.

 
 
 



Do You Know the Tooth Fairy?

Words by Tonya Dirksen

Tune:  The Muffin Man

 

Oh, do you know the Tooth Fairy?

The Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy

Oh, do you know the Tooth Fairy

Who takes your tooth at night?

 

Every tooth pops out,

When it’s too small

It pops out.

Every tooth pops out

When it gets too small.

 

It’s time to hide your popped out tooth,

Your popped out tooth,

Your popped out tooth,

It’s time to hide your popped out tooth

Underneath your pillow

 

Oh, do you know the Tooth Fairy?

The Tooth Fairy,

The Tooth Fairy,

Oh, do you know the Tooth Fairy

Who takes your tooth at night?

 

 

She’ll leave some money in its place,

In its place,

In its place,

She’ll leave some money in its place

When she takes your tooth at night.

 

No one knows what she does with teeth,

With all those teeth,

With all those teeth,

No one knows what she does with teeth,

It’s such a mystery.

 

Oh, do you know the Tooth Fairy?

The Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy

Oh ,do you know the Tooth Fairy

Who takes your tooth at night?

Enjoy!

  2. I love your singing voice! There aren't any tooth fairy songs that I know of, so people will appreciate this song. I will fix the link to the post when my computer behaves, soon, I hope. Darling song! Carolyn
