End of the Year Teacher Gifts

As you may have read yesterday my son just finished his first year of nursery school - I wanted to create something great for his teachers and for his classmates.

One of the moms in the class suggested a gift card flower bouquet.  She took the link garland I made (post here) and made flowers out of them.  Each parent brought in a picture of their kid to go in the center.  We taped the gift cards to a 'petal' and placed all 7 into a vase, overcrowded but adorable.  I found a cute printable here - that said "Thanks for Helping US Bloom."  
The Teachers loved this and everyone kept walking down the hall admiring it.


I also wanted to give the teacher something a little special so I put together a little flower pot of succulents.  They come back every year and very easy to care for.  I found a printable here - that said "Thank you for helping me Grow".  Perfect for this.  I attached to a #2 pencil and voila.



Now for the kids in the class - I am working on favors for my daughters birthday and thought of giving sidewalk chalk.  I didn't want to do a lot for my sons classmates/friends and who doesn't love sidewalk chalk???  A big box was on sale at ACMoore.  I put 2 together and added a napkin or water bottle wrap Printable found here-.  So cute huh?


I also found these cute ideas on pinterest and thought I would share:


What creative things are you giving to your teachers or classmates?  would love to hear!
