I know so many parents are waiting for the day when their little ones start school. Or maybe your kids are a bit older and you just can’t wait to send them off after a fun filled summer. Don’t get me wrong, summer is great and we all love our kids dearly, but sometimes school is the only break that we get from our kiddos.
So you probably already have the supplies list and the class schedule. Maybe you’re super mom and already went shopping for the supplies. I know in some places they have already started school and others will be starting next week. These moments are usually all about your kids. They need new clothes, shoes, folders, notebooks, and that super cool backpack that they have to get. While it is definitely an awesome time for your kids and they are excited to get back to the swing of things, we usually forget about one very important person- The Teacher.
I shouldn’t even have to mention it but we all know they do so much for our kids. If you ask me, I think they are not given the praise they deserve. We tend to just drop off the kids at school and forget what goes on throughout their day. If your kids need help, they run to their teacher. This person spends more time with your kids throughout the week than you do. Yes, I know that sucks but it’s the reality.
So what exactly could we do give them an extra shout out? A small gift to say thank you! Usually, we send out a thank you note or a small gift at the end of the year or throughout the holidays. Why not give them a gift when school starts? It will give them an extra boost and help them feel appreciated by the parents and students.
This DIY flower bouquet is PERFECT for teachers! You can choose different colors or a different kind of candy to make it fit your teacher’s taste.
Before we begin, here are a few items you will need:
Foam stickers (flowers)
- Begin by getting out 30 flower foam stickers in different sizes. Punch a hole through the center of each flower.
- Next, push the hole through the eraser of each pencil. Once all the pencils are completed, put them in the vase and start putting in the Hershey kisses.
- The Hershey kisses should fill up the vase and none of the pencils should be showing through the vase.
- Finally, cut out some ribbon and tie a bow around the vase to finish the look.
- Last but not least, give it to the teacher and watch their eyes gleam in excitement!
Have an awesome school year!!!
