Teacher Appreciation Week just happened. I know this because it took all of my might to restrain myself from making these awesome little gifts that involved Chinese take-out containers from the dollar store, a large bag of chop sticks, and home made fortune cookies.
It is with great pride that I can tell you instead, I bought a pretty box of thank you cards, and wrote personal letters. To all 9 of the people I felt were worthy which is everyone A.P. has any sort of contact with. Apparently it made quite a little stir. In a good way.
I’ll admit that the prospect of organizing the gift projects for the teacher’s birthday party (which is next week) probably was what tided me over. It’s just lovely, really, and the children are all involved. I’m all a-flutter thinking about it, but that’s not what I want to blog about today.
I wanted to see what you all were doing for year-end teacher’s gifts, if anything. In A.P.’s preschool, I gave ‘kits’ both years. One year was an ice cream kit, with bowls, sprinkles, chocolate sauce, etc. The next year was a BBQ kit you can read about here.
Do you ‘do’ year end gifts in elementary school? Some time in mid-February, I bought some cute paper BBQ napkins on clearance for real cheap and I am assuming I had planned to whip up a teacher’s gift with them.
So what’s the word? Yay? Nay? Help a sister out.
