For the teacher appreciation gifts this year, I ended up doing the following smaller gifts. It seemed like due to after school which sort of is during the school day and then several changes during the year, I had several to do so I tried to keep them simple. Plus I have an upcoming engagement which meant I did not want too much to do in order to prep beforehand. I must add that the sucker bouquet was the biggest pain to make. I don't know how most people do it and I don't think mine were the cutest by far. I had to wrap it with tape to keep them all together and look right. They still didn't seem to look quite right. If I had a third hand, I think I could have made them cuter.
|Monday: "You are EXTRA special" on some Extra gum, dressed like a gift.|
|Tuesday: "Ms. Teacher, Student is a sucker for you!" around a sucker bouquet.|
|Wednesday: "We need some S'MORE teachers like you!" around a bag of the stuff needed to make some.|
|Thursday: "You are SIMPLY the best!" around a "simply" drink, all different.|
There is also a swim teacher now that I decided to deserved a gift. We have gone from not even enjoying time in the bath to working on swimming across the pool in 6 short months so I am just amazed at how they do it at this place. It is a "fish bowl" which was a small vase filled with Swedish fish. I put three bags of them in there. The bowl has written on it, "Mr. Teacher, you are O-fish-ally the best swim teacher!" The "fish" is a sad picture of a fish, but at least the point can be made ;)
