teacher gifts

Only 2 days of school left.  What am I going to do all summer, stuck in the house because of the heat, with two active little boys?  Wish me luck, or even better, send some ideas my way!

We just finished E’s teacher gifts. He has one teacher and an assistant which helps out in his montesorri classroom.  They are both awesome and we are so lucky to have spent time with them this year.

We painted little clay pots with chalkboard paint and inside we put a packet of basil seeds with a special note stuck onto it that reads, “Thanks for helping me grow”. Then we put in a felt flower and felt leaf topped pen, a couple more pens, some chalk (to write on the pot with), a painted rock bug and a chocolate bar.

Once these next two days are over, that means my guy will be a 4th grader!! Can you believe it? I sure can’t.

  1. Such a cute gift. I didn’t even know about teacher gifts for the end of the year! We still have another month of school here and then I will be in the same boat… two kids to entertain all summer long.

    so sweet!
    we must be right on the same page, regina — just seconds before i clicked over here, i was thinking to myself, “we need to start getting teacher gifts together soon.” (we still have 2 weeks to go…)
    and yesterday, i reminded myself to make a list of summer activities for me and the kiddos to do.

    great, crafty minds i guess 😉

    Have you seen today’s groupon? It’s for 2 months at the racquet club for only 29 dollars. You could buy them as “gifts” for E and I and Ryan…For the whole family it would be about 120, then you guys could go swimming, play tennis, etc for a whole two months. Plus you could sneak off with me and take yoga classes… heh heh heh, all part of my evil plot! Here is the link in case you are interested: http://www.groupon.com/tucson/deals/tucson-racquet-and-fitness-club?utm_campaign=UserReferral&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=uu1830397
    Hope you are having a good week!
