Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Ideas

Post to Twitter .

The first day of teacher appreciation week the kids were supposed to write letters/cards to their teacher. Each class also “adopted” a specials teacher or a faculty member.

Ryan’s letter started like this…

I told him that he probably shouldn’t write about his teacher being irate. So he erased it and this is what the letter ended up saying.

Sigh

I let it go. She knows Ryan and hopefully she knows he means well.

Side note: both Ryan and I LOVE his teacher. She is an amazing person with tons of patience and a sweet personality. I asked her to loop up with her class so we could have her again. That’s how much we love her.

Regardless, I figured I better step it up tomorrow though with a fun little gift.

I bought the Sharpie markers at Costco, the baskets at Dollar Tree, the floral arrangement foam thingys (that’s the technical term) from Walmart. I cut the flowers with my Silhouette Portrait using a design from the Silhouette shop.

It took some trial and error to get the flowers the right size and to get the hole the right size to fit on the Sharpie markets. But I got it and cut them out in no time.

I then placed each sharpie in the floral foam stuff at the height I wanted for each one. They are sturdy and it was easy to put them in.

I personalized each bucket with the teacher names and added a vinyl flower to match the flower tops. I wrapped some green tissue around the base to hide the floral foam stuff and it was done.

If Mother Nature won’t bring spring to us, I’m just going to have to spread a little Spring myself.

Btw – snow and wintry mix is predicted for Atlanta in the overnight hours tonight.

I.AM.DONE with winter.
