Interesting questions and answers about the storage of milk teeth and the milk tooth canister chain in advance

On the one hand, milk teeth are a beautiful childhood memory. On the other hand, it is worth keeping the former loose teeth because stem cells can be obtained from them later if they are stored correctly. These may help in the healing of diseases.

A milk tooth canister can be a very special gift to a child. Thanks to a home-made milk tooth canister chain, you can turn it into a personalised name gift:

  • You can use letter cubes to represent the child's name.
  • Motif beads can represent pretty symbols like hearts and stars or hobbies like football or favourite animals like dogs and cats.
  • You can also choose the child's favourite colours.

Handicraft Material for Milk Tooth Canister Chains:

Step 1: Experimenting With Beads

step-by-step instructions milk tooth can chain: arranging beads

Let your creativity run wild: play with your beads and create two bead strand designs. In our example, one bead strand shows the child's name and a second one includes a pretty motif bead.

It is recommended using a safety bead at each bead strand's end so that the knot can disappear into it.

Step 2: Tying the Cord Around the Milk Tooth Canister

Tie the cord tightly around the milk tooth can by making a double knot, so that the cord lies in the provided notch.

Step 3: Stringing the Beads

With a lighter, melt the cord end and press it with your fingers as flat as possible. Doing this makes stringing the beads easier. Now string the first bead strand, except for the safety bead.

Step 4: Finishing the Bead Strand

Make a simple knot behind the last bead. It should be as close as possible to the last bead. You can use a large needle, thin stick or skewer to help. Insert this tool into the loop of the still loose knot and push the knot very close to the bead.

Then string the safety bead with its larger opening pointing outward. Pull the safety bead with it smaller opening over the simple knot.

Now make a double knot as close as possible to the safety bead's larger opening. Carefully shorten the cord end with scissors. Fuse the double knot with the lighter and push or press it into the safety bead's larger opening by using tweezers.

Interesting questions and answers about gifts for fallen out milk teeth and the tooth fairy

A cute milk tooth canister is a practical gift for the very first, fallen out milk tooth. Like a little treasure chest, it preserves the little teeth and thus the precious childhood memories.
The tooth fairy can give other small gifts in exchange for the milk teeth that will fall out later. Ask yourself what your child particularly likes. For example, you can give a radio play, a lunch box, play figures, a puzzle or a colouring book. Vouchers for shared family experiences are also particularly nice as a tooth fairy gift.

After the first fallen out former wiggly tooth, it's a nice idea for the tooth fairy to leave a letter for the child.
In it, the tooth fairy can write the following, for example:

  • congratulate on the first tooth gap
  • say that the parents and, if applicable, siblings were certainly amazed when they saw the gap between the teeth
  • say thank you for the beautiful white milk tooth
  • emphasise how great it is that the milk tooth has been cleaned so well
  • wish that the child will also brush the permanent teeth as well
  • say that the child is now one of the big ones and emphasise how proud she is of the child

Important Notes for Using Milk Tooth Can Chains

Caution should always be exercised with memory gifts for children. Therefore, please observe the following notes regarding the use of your self-made milk tooth canister chain:

  • Give the milk tooth can chain only to older children who you can leave alone with it without hesitation.
  • Check the milk tooth can chain regularly to ensure that it is undamaged.
  • Clean the milk tooth canister chain carefully with a cloth. Strong detergents or disinfectants are not suitable for cleaning.

Advantages of Using a Milk Tooth Canister Chain

You have used these handicraft instructions to make your very own milk teeth can chain? Awesome! Schnullerkettenladen's wooden cans as such have many advantages: They are made of robust solid wood and have a screw cap. Thus they protect your little treasures very well. All edges are rounded. You can choose your favourites from different colours and prints.

However, the wooden can only become a real highlight with an attached self-made name chain. Thanks to a narrow notch below the canister's edge, you can easily attach a cord. Use it to string letter cubes and colourful wooden beads. This way you can create a nice gift for children or proud parents to remind them of the kid's childhood.
