TEACHER'S GIFTS - Explore, Silhouette

Hi Everyone - This week at my son's school the students are taking what in my day of schooling was called "achievement tests."  The tests that Jacob will be taking this week are called "Georgia Milestones."  Jacob's teachers have worked really hard to try and make sure he and all their students are ready for the tests.  Believe me, Jacob has been stressed out in preparation for these tests.  

I personally think that teachers are underpaid and unappreciated for all that they do and have to put up with at school.  I try to show my appreciation for them at least once a month by sending little gifts to brighten their days. The gifts are inexpensive but they seem to appreciate them.  

With that in mind, I thought I would send the teachers a little pick me up this week.  I don't know about you, but I love the $1.00 bins at Michael's - especially when the items that I want to buy are on sale for half price.  So let's just say, I hit the jackpot getting a nice pick me up for little money.  I also bought gift bags at Hobby Lobby for half price.  I used my Explore to print my saying for the front of the bags and cut the frame out.

The saying says:  For you --- because you have gone the extra "mile" to make sure your students succeed on the "milestones."

I then used my Silhouette to cut out the carrier for the nail polish and file. Here is a picture of the cards, pencils, nail polish, and nail files that I included in the bags.

I hope they will enjoy this little treat.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  We appreciate your visits and comments.  Until another day, God Bless You!  Donna

  1. What a nice thing to do for all the teachers. My niece is a 4th grade teacher and she would love a gift like the one you made. Our local area is also having test that the whole state gets to take at the same time.



I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
