The early years of elementary school are all about loosing baby teeth.  My own daughter has lost a couple while at school – never to be found again.  She was devastated and worried that the tooth fairy would not visit her without a tooth to trade.  I convinced her that the tooth fairy is very clever and never makes a mistake.  None-the-less, I am also kind of disappointed when a tooth goes missing, so I decided to create a tooth saver bag to give to teachers.  Entirely hand sewn, the brightly hued bags are made from recycled t-shirts, felt, and ribbon.  Kids proudly wear them during the day at school, keeping their tooth safe until they can bring it home and deposit it under their pillow.
