Teacher Gifts

Today was the day!  The last day of school for my kiddos!  Sort of a bitter sweet day for me.  I am excited to think about less structured days, fun summer activities, and best of all-a break from the busy morning routine!  But I am also a bit nervous about the long days of summer and trying to keep everyone entertained!   But like it or not, here we go!  And I must say, I am looking forward to not having to make lunches at 6:30 tomorrow morning ;)

We have absolutely amazing teachers for our kids so I of course wanted to do something special for them for the last day.  I like to do something personal but also something I think they will really enjoy.  This year I decided I was going to do Target gift cards (actually, I had a different, more time consuming project I was going to do for them but ran out of time so I had to come up with a plan B...but who doesn't love Target?!  Still a great gift in my eyes!).

I wanted to find a way to make them a little more personalized than just sticking them in a greeting card, so I made up these fun little notes to go along with them.  I saw some other similar ideas on Pinterest, but wasn't totally satisfied with any of them so I took some ideas then made ones to my own liking ;)  Then I just taped the gift card on top!  Easy!  And they were a big hit today!

  6. Teachers work really hard to make students a good human being. They should be acknowledged. these gifts could be the best options to send them, but once you are done with your assignments, this can make them more happy. Try some professional dissertation proposal writing services.
