Here it is already day 4 of this great week. Although I have only received one handmade sign from a student, I still love this week. I love being able to make and do things for other people.
On the questionnaire I sent to Jaxxon's teachers, I asked them what their favorite snack food was.
Three teachers said popcorn! For that, we bought a box of popcorn and divided up the pouches. We tied a bow on it, and the gift was born.
One teacher likes trail mix, so we got a bag and tied a bow on it.
One likes caramel popcorn, so we got a bag and tied a bow on it.
The last teacher likes peanut butter crackers, so you guessed it! We bought some peanut butter crackers and we tied a bow on it.
I used my cricut to make little personalized name tags.
I wanted to add a little something extra for Jaxxon's main teacher. I found this cute sign at the Skip to My Lou site. She provides the download! I printed out the sign in the two colors. I bought two frames from Dollar Store. After putting the sign in the frame, I wrote the number and the event with a dry erase marker. This will be perfect to sit on her desk. It can be used for any type of countdown! I also made one for my very close teacher friend at my school!
In case you haven't noticed, I love tulle bows! Tulle just adds a little something extra to a gift! I buy it at Hobby Lobby when they have their Christmas supplies on sale for 50% off. They start putting the Christmas stuff out during July, so you have plenty of time to get it! During Christmas, they have the big spools of tulle for $9.99! I use it all year!!
The teachers liked the goodies, and Jaxxon and I liked providing the smile!
