It’s that time of year again, the summer vacation is upon us and end of terms events are coming thick and fast! In amongst all that, teacher gifts are required…
This year, group gifts were organised, but the 5yo wanted to give each of his teachers a small gift and a card. So, we put together gift boxes containing some Lindor chocolates (one of my favourites, but mainly chosen as they come individually wrapped!) and a homemade card. The 5yo chose a photo of himself (in case they forget him) and wrote the cards himself. We also made gift tags for each box.
I bought the chocolates and boxes, along with some blank gift tags and some twine. I made up a little ‘thank you’ label (I do love PicMonkey!) and laid everything out for the 5yo.
First he wrote his name on each of the tags and then we stuck the labels on. We then filled each box with yummy chocolates.
The next day the 5yo got to work on making cards. He chose some red card stock and a photo of him climbing! He stuck the pictures on the front of the cards and carefully wrote each of his teachers names in their cards. He dictated a little note to each of them, which I duly wrote in the cards. We popped them in the boxes, and then he wrote another label for each, to stick on the front of the box. Lastly, he helped me tie the gift tags on.
He finished for the year last Thursday and he was thrilled to hand out his homemade gifts to each of his teachers on his last day of school. He’s going to miss them all, but he is very excited to be starting Kindergarten after the summer :)
