Thank you guys so much for the kind and encouraging comments yesterday! I think the shoot went well and I'm excited to see my kid's room through the lens of a professional!
I can't believe another school year is coming to an end. This means that not only do I now have a Fifth Grader...but my Babygirl will be a Kindergartner! *gulp* Of course there are multiple occasions throughout the school year to spoil their teachers, but I like to show our gratitude at the end of the year also.
I made this little project for our favorite babysitter, who is now a bonafide college graduate and a future rockstar-teacher!
Super easy, and fun to do with the kids.
First hot glue pencils around the perimeter of the can, making sure they are flush with the bottom so the can will sit evenly. Cover craft letters in the teacher's monogram with craft paper (or simply paint them), then affix them to the side of the can with a dot of hot glue. I added a band of ribbon for a little more polished look.
Depending on the size of the can, it can be used as a pencil cup (pun intended, har), or a small vase for flowers and plants.
Another gift I whipped up is courtesy of the super cute outdoor party supplies at Target.
Stripey paper lanterns, plates, napkins and bucket...all $2 or less!
Arranged together with tissue paper and windmills, it's the perfect start to a teacher's favorite season...Summer!
What is your favorite way to thank teachers?
