    We follow the Seed Bunny tradition, but with so many friends being visited by the Tooth Fairy, we’ve had to amend our myth: Seed Bunny and Tooth Fairy are friends, cousins even!
    The Seed Bunny takes the tooth and leaves a packet of carrot seeds. The child plants the seeds. By the time the carrots are ready to eat, the tooth is grown in ready to bite and chew!
    This is a story derived from the Scholastic book, The Seed Bunny.

  4. cool ideas, .in my country of origin Puerto Rico we have the tradition that Lil’ mouse comes gets your tooth and leave a dollar. crazy tradition a mouse! But my daughters believe in fairies like I do!
