Tooth Taxis {out of old film canisters}

Here's an easy and inexpensive idea I got my from sister {who teaches Grade One} -- a "Tooth Taxi" made out of an old film canister. 


My oldest son has just started loosing teeth, and it is serious business to a six year old.  A lost tooth could be a total catastrophe!

So... why not use a cute sticker to turn a regular film canister into a tooth taxi?  This is a perfect way to get a tiny tooth home safely.  :-)

I even made a bunch and sent them to my son's First Grade Teacher to have "on hand" for her students.


So clever.  Thanks for the idea, little sister!

  3. How cute is that? We just went through the trauma of losing a tooth while in a hotel room ... and then losing the tooth somewhere in the room ... thankfully, I have the tooth fairy's email address ;-) and was able to write and explain. Whew! This tooth taxi would have saved the day!

    1. I hear ya! We lost our first tooth in the van when we were on vacation. Luckily my sister had given us a tooth taxi.

      Sure glad you had the tooth fairy's email address. ;-)

  11. Dear Gina

    This idea is soo cool! I live in Switzerland and because I really love your Tooth Taxi I designed a similar German version of the Tooth Taxi (which is the Milchzahn-Taxi) and linked back to your blog.
    My beautiful first graders absolutely love the taxi and I just wanted to thank you!
    Greetings from Switzerland!
