Has your son or daughter recently lost a tooth? Folding money into shapes makes for a cute surprise for the tooth fairy to leave a lucky child. A tiny box or basket is an obvious choice, but you could choose a different figure to represent your child's interests if you want a more personal touch. You could also leave a sheet of instructions and a note from the tooth fairy encouraging your child to have fun practicing origami as he or she waits for the next visit from the tooth fairy.
