If you've already read my Mother's Day post then you know how on top of things I am right now.
You guessed it, I haven't started Teacher Appreciation gifts either.
I know, I'm terrible.
Luckily I still have a couple weeks before our school celebrates.
Wish me luck!
No really, wish me luck.
Now if you're like me (and you're probably not) and need some ideas, I'm willing to share.
Last year we gave water bottles and Crystal Lite packets.
This is such a simple gift but the teachers just loved it!
I got the idea at Frills, Fluff and Trucks.
She's got other great teacher ideas there, as well.
A couple years ago we painted pots with chalkboard paint and the kids wrote,
"Thank you for helping me GROW" with chalk.
We included chalk and foam handprint "flowers."
When Daisey was in kindergarten I crocheted her teacher a pretty bookmark and gave her a book.
When Daisey was in first grade she insisted on giving her teacher flowers in a vase made of pencils.
I've seen lots of them around since but at the time I didn't have a tutorial.
So, I hot glued pencils to a plastic vase.
It looks cute, but I think I like this idea better.
Bethany at The Paper Pony used a Crystal Lite container and a rubber band, so you can still use the pencils later.
A few years ago we made their teachers some upcycled clipboards with scrapbook paper, mod podge and ribbon.
They were a hit!
This year two of my kids' teachers are men.
So....I'm thinking food?
What's the funnest teacher gift you've ever given?
