When you least expect it a child will lose one of his/her baby teeth at school. What do you do with the tooth? First, you praise the child because he/she has lost a baby tooth and now a permanent tooth will grow in its place. You reassure the child they are growing up and this is normal. Next, you have the child rinse out his/her mouth with water to clean the tooth area. You look at the child holding the tooth in his/her hand and say, “Now it’s time for the I Lost a Tooth! keepsake envelope.”
On the backside of the envelope the child, teacher, or a parent can write how the tooth was lost. Place the tooth inside the envelope and seal it up. The child can read or share in front of the class how he/she lost the tooth. Classmates can ask questions about how it happened, how it felt, what’s going to happen to the tooth when it gets home, etc. Then the child can take the keepsake envelope home.
Also, I Lost a Tooth! wristbands are included. The child who lost a tooth can also be given a wristband to wear to show that he/she has lost a tooth.
The keepsake envelope and wristband come in 7 different colors, plus the black and white master and direction pages. There are 18 pages in this download plus the cover.
