What do you get the teachers?
I’ve been racking my brain for the last couple of days on what to give the P’s teachers as an end of the year ‘Thank You’. Especially P2′s preschool teachers….there are 4 of them!
I didn’t want to do a gift card because it just seems so impersonal, and of course I procrastinated (it’s my middle name) and didn’t have time to make or order anything cute and personalized with pictures.
I also didn’t want to do some wall picture or handprint art craft because lets be honest, does a teacher really keep all of those?!
I had remembered seeing on a blog somewhere (don’t ask me where because I honestly don’t know the link) a while ago, a mom had given her child’s teacher a beach towel, magazine, and bottle of sunscreen and tied them together with a ribbon. I thought it was a great idea but I like to get a little more creative with my packaging….it can make even the most simple gifts look so much more thought out. And, since P2 has four teachers it was going to get a little $$$ to buy each of them a beach towel and bottle of sunscreen. So………
I found these adorable buckets in the dollar bin at Target and had an idea! “Summer Survival” gifts for each of them!
In each bucket I included a travel size sun screen ($1), a vaseline lip balm ($1), a plastic water bottle ($1), a candy, a bag of 100 calorie cookie snacks, and a few individual drink mixes from snapple and crystal light. Total I spent around $5 per gift and they were quick and easy to throw together.
We are doing something similar for P1′s Kindergarten teacher, but I’ll have to wait until after we give it to her on Thursday to post
