As mentioned last week, I wanted to wrap up my purchased (Yeah!) Teacher Gifts with something simple. To have this almost complete a couple weeks before school is out is a major accomplishment around here. (Remember our holiday gift) So when I considered chalkboard cookies or making a key, for our tag, one of my two daughters had to remind me that we were going with a ready to go gift in order not to have a stress during exams.
Okay, all right, but I couldn't help making them a little extra special and when we found this chalkboard style quote from Balancing Home, we knew we had a theme.
After a download(following their directions), print and mount on black construction paper, we added a name tag, chalkboard style with a white watercolour pencil. On the box there is one picture showing our water bottle with an infusion of cucumber. I found some recipes from NancyCreative. Yumm . I've been trying them the last few days to perk up my filtered water at home. I love the citrus and fresh mint (centre) We wrapped up the print-out of recipes with twine and we will place it in the bottle, for ideas on how to use the water bottle.
I hope it comes in handy for all our teachers, office staff and bus driver. I really respect the work that our teachers do and I can truly say that,
A Teacher takes a hand, opens a mind & touches a heart
ps. sorry wrap it up Thursday is on Friday - it's been a busy week
