My brain is completely fried! Literally these past weeks my glue gun has been on non-stop. Seeing this was our first year having kids in school I was unfamiliar with the ways of Teacher's Appreciation Week. I remember when Mason was in Kindergarten there was a note that said what to bring on each day. For example Monday was flower, Tuesday was a treat, Wednesday was a paper, etc, etc. So naive me I thought I was getting a letter as well. NOPE!.......So I started gathering things. Mason and Hailey helped make some crafts ahead of time since I knew that this week was approaching. But like I said my brain has been completely fried. So Tuesday night; 2 days into Teachers week: I realized that my kids have gone to school empty handed. I doubt that teachers expect much but I wasn't going to get lazy now. So during that night I pulled together those gifts we started on and add those finishing touches.
1- Hailey picked out 2 pink water bottles (Mason was in school when we went to the store so Hailey picked it out for him) with some lemonade packets and a special note from the kids
2- a magnet board thing that I found at Dollar Tree with this sign I made and glued onto it. The kids colored the flowers and signed their name on it. It turned out really cute :-)
3. a cosmetic bag with some goodies. All those free travel sized items from coupons make a great gift. Body spray, body wash, lotion, etc.
4. a package of flower seeds that the kids picked out with the note " Teachers plant the seeds of knowledge that will grow forever". Mason and Hailey made these cute flower bookmarks from felt and paperclips. Plus Mason made several of these seed packets for all his resource teachers so that's an extra 3 teachers. And Hailey gave one to her PE teacher. Thank goodness for gardening sales! :-)
Sunshine Box. Plus our family sent out some cards and gifts in the mail. Plus I had to gather and prepare some things for our wards Relief Society activity.
