Anyone else overwhelmed too??
Well I really do appreciate all the teachers in our busy kid world. I just don't have time to show them in the most creative way possible! I helped our Parent Club deliver donuts on Monday and decorate the teachers' lounge. Tuesday the club gave the teachers fresh fruit. I already forgot what's being delivered today, but Thursday will be lunch and Friday will be cookies. I participate in the Parent Club and helped raised the funds used for this week's gifts. But I still want my boys' teachers to know that I personally appreciate them.
My friend Michele found this "mint" printable and even printed two extra copies for me! She is a school secretary, and she made adorable little gift bags for the teachers at her school. You can attach this printable to anything mint-flavored. I just made it very very easy on myself.
I ran to Walgreens and bought a 3-pack of mint Tic-Tacs for $0.99 and a tin of cinnamon mints (just in case they want an alternate flavor) for $0.99 each. I threw those into treat bags I had leftover from Christmas (I skipped the Rudolph toppers...). I used white ribbon to tie them up and attach the printed card.
The free printable card can be found at Made 2 B Creative. It says:
Thank You for yourThis morning as I watched someone carrying flowers into preschool, I realized that I've spent all my energy on the boys' teachers and forgot about the preschool teachers! So I ran out and bought two boxes of Junior Mints and two bags of Pepperidge Farms Mint Chocolate Milano Minis. I simply tied them together and printed two more cards. Preschool teachers: appreciated!
