Today I just want to share with you what we decided to do for Christopher’s teachers. The class mom had put out a note to all of the parents that she was taking up a collection to get a gift certificate for the teachers. I was going to do it but then decided instead of taking the easy way out, I would make them a gift. This was his last year at the school and one of his current teacher’s he has had before. So, I wanted to do something special.
Good old reliable Pinterest helped me out with a few cute ideas. This was my inspiration….
I thought this was perfect since this year the kids really focused on handwriting and letters. What better way to showcase what he has learned?? The bags needed some color in my opinion so I changed them up a bit.
It was a simple, inexpensive project but it was a tiny bit time consuming. I just took a plain white tote and used some Sharpies to draw the lines to make it look like a sheet of paper. Next, Christopher used a pencil to draw a picture of the teacher and write her name. I then used embroidery floss to go over his work. Instead of black I used colored thread.
Here is what we ended up with…
I filled the bags with some goodies and we were good to go!! The teachers loved them!!
Have a great Monday….
