Lost Tooth Traditions & Histories Across The World

Tooth Fairy Kids Activities

Tooth Fairies & Animals:

As tradition goes in America, Canada, and in the UK (and other places in the world) the Tooth Fairy comes and takes baby teeth from under children's pillows. Then they leave a payment in the tooth's place.

Australia, South Africa, Spain and countless other countries celebrate the Tooth Mouse (or The Rat of Teeth) who comes to take teeth from children.

In El Salvador, a Tooth Bunny takes children's teeth and leaves them money, just like the Tooth Mouse and Tooth Fairy.

Throwing Teeth:

In other countries children throw their teeth in certain places.

In Dominican Republic, India, Bulgaria, Jamaica, and in Greece children throw their teeth on the roof. Some hope that either a mouse or a sparrow will bring them a new one.

Guess some form of small animal is always involved with lost teeth in tooth traditions around the world.


Fear of Witches:

A long time ago in England, mothers feared witches getting control of their baby through their lost teeth. They thought that if a witch did, they'd be able to control their child forever. Some parents burned the tooth or hid them in nests where rats and snakes could be found (because they believed witches were afraid of them).
