It's that time of year again! I love fall, and always loved shopping for back to school supplies. While my son goes to "school" (daycare) year round, he will be moving up to a new room on the first day of school next week. So we will be giving the 2 teachers he will be leaving a thank you gifts and giving his 2 new teachers "happy school year" gifts.
This year, we are giving the teachers school supply boxes full of some essentials! I originally saw the idea here. I'm going to add gift cards to the boxes for the 2 teachers he is leaving, but not to the boxes for his new teachers. (they will get gift cards and a little something when he leaves their room)
I got the boxes and all the items to go in the boxes for 4 teachers for under $30 at Michael's. I found all Laura Ashley stuff (pencils, paper clips, pens, erasers, etc) for 50% off. (everything was like 60 cents!) And, I got the boxes in the scrapbook organization area --2 boxes per pack for $6.99 and they were 40% off!
I used my craft stash for all the supplies to decorate the tops of the boxes. I think they turned out really cute, and I hope all of the teachers enjoy them!
(Note: You can click on the pics to see them larger. I need to get around to redesigning the blog so I can post bigger pics!)
Do you give gifts to teachers on the last day/first day of school? Share your ideas!
