Super Simple Tooth Holder for the Tooth Fairy

My oldest has started losing baby teeth. He has lost 4 so far, and there are more to come. Teeth, once removed from a mouth, are gross. I don’t want to touch them if I can help it. So I came up with these little tooth-shaped felt pockets. I can whip up a bunch of them quick and easy. My son can slip the latest casualty of growing up into one, and slip it under his pillow. The tooth fairy can remove it, toss it in the garbage (one that he won’t see), and replace it with a fresh tooth pouch that has a golden dollar coin tucked into it (though a folded dollar would work just as well… so would a quarter if your tooth fairy hasn’t given in to inflation.
