It is Teacher Appreciation Week and your child’s teacher deserves some goodies! (I speak as a former teacher. Trust me.)
Things were a bit crazy last weekend, so I thought of two simple last minute gifts for E’s Pre-K teachers.
The first is this candy bar. E chose the bar and I wrote “Thanks for being so SWEET!” on a punched-out circle of paper. I then tied it around the bar with a piece of garden twine. Simple. Cute. Tasty.
Second was today’s little gift. I let E choose three geraniums at Wal-Mart for $3.30 each. I then used a glue stick to glue a little note to the back of a pack of seeds (I already had several…I let E choose from those as well). Just put a little stripe of glue along the top of the note. I wrote “Thank you for growing young minds!” Cheesy, but they are Pre-K teachers, they’re used to cheese! Then slip the pack into a plastic fork and stick the fork in the plant. I used some cellophane I had in the house, but I was really searching for brown craft paper. That would be even cuter tied around the flower pot with some more of that handy garden twine!
Two simple gifts for a total of $4.30 plus tax per teacher (a little more if you have to purchase flower seeds, but you could always leave those out too!).
