Losing baby teeth is an exciting and sometimes scary event for kids. Primary teeth fall out, making way for permanent teeth to move in. This process usually begins for your little ones between the age of 6 and 7. In most instances by 12-13, the adult teeth are all there. There is no better time than preadolescence to do something fun and magical that your kids can get excited about. Since losing baby teeth are significant milestones, why not keep them and make them mementos? Something you can look back on when teenage attitude strikes as a helpful reminder of just how tiny and precious your children once were are.
Though common, a small memory box is one way to preserve the occasion. Whether it’s something you and your child construct together or purchase, a small box is a neat and easy solution to storing those little perils. If you’re looking for a more visual reminder, you can always use little glass boxes or old jars to keep the teeth in. Storing the teeth in plastic or Ziploc bags taped to pages in a baby book is another fond way to look back, labeled and dated of course, so it’s easier to recall when the tooth fell out. Some businesses will bronze baby teeth just as you would baby’s first shoes or rattle. Bronzed teeth can be kept just as a keepsake or turned into a funky piece of jewelry. Turning teeth into jewelry is the latest trend for doing something creative, strong stomach pending. Bronzed or not, your baby’s first lost tooth can be placed on a necklace, bracelet, or even turned into a pair of earrings for your wearing pleasure.
Though tooth jewelry creation is presently experiencing a surge in popularity, it was practiced famously in the Victorian era by Queen Victoria herself. When Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Victoria lost her first baby tooth, she had the tooth preserved and placed poignantly in a broach. Today, this broach is included in an exhibition at Buckingham Palace. These little teeth are a sentimental reminder of a time when our kids were tiny and innocent. They represent early smiles and giggles; why not do something creative to preserve them? However you choose to keep them, don’t forget to leave a token under the pillow. The tooth fairy still has a responsibility too!
