A Teacher Gift


Here is a little something we made for our teacher (super easy).  The boys loved collecting sticks for it, my mom gave me the idea...

What a super cute idea, I may have to copy that one for sure. Who doesn't love the wisdom of Winnie the Pooh!

I used to give books to teachers - now it is so great with gift cards, you don't have to worry about whether they already have the book or not. They can get whichever one they want.

That is such a great idea! :)

I would buy some cereal.

Very cute teacher gift, I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm a Box Tops mama, too. With $25 I could buy some Klutz books and some of those melty beads... always great for hours of entertainment!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE the framed quote. My search for this year's teacher gift is over...Thanks!!

Those little box tops are pretty amazing things! I know my son's school has earned a lot of money through them. I would buy something to entertain my kids during summer vacation, arts and crafts, pool toys...

Loooove that quote! What a great idea! I could even see doing some monogrammed frames with the sticks. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love it! If I won, I would use it to buy stuff for my preschool class! :) They love art and boy supplies get expensive!

I love the quote, Winnie and of course the sticks... nice way to incorporate a walk in the woods (to find sticks of course) into this gift.

I love this! My husband is an elementary teacher and it's so hard to find decorations and gifts that are "manly" enough. This fits the bill perfectly! Thanks!

This is brilliant - we will definitely do this for a teacher's gift. We love Winnie the Pooh and can't quote chunks of it around here.

Thanks for sharing this! I just made one for my daughter's first kindergarten teacher. We'll heading to orientation in about an hour. Thanks again!
