We have hit the end of another school year. That means this fall I’ll have an 8th grader, 6th grader, 4th grader, 2nd grader, 1st grader, preschooler and 1 little princess left at home with me. When did I get so old?
A LONG while back I saw a really cute Teacher Gift. It is from back in 2010 so who knows when exactly I saw it and thought it was adorable (according to pinterest it was at least 15 weeks ago).
I knew it was what I wanted to do for our end of the year Teacher Gifts. We participate all throughout the year with gifts for the teachers because I 100% believe they deserve them (beginning of the year, Christmas, Valentine’s, Teacher Appreciation Week and if I can happen to find out birthdays). With a whole herd of kiddos in school I am always looking for something thoughtful that won’t break the bank.
This one fit the bill.
I found these really cute bright flower pots for $0.96 (I bought 4). The flowers each came in a pack of 6 for $2.28 (I bought 4). I then printed off the cute printable but I left the name area blank. To make it a little more personal I had each of the kids in their own handwriting write *me* so it reads “Thank you for helping ME bloom* and then they signed their name. Another thing I did to make it a little more personal was to add a picture of the child to the pot as well. Obviously I know that probably won’t stay there forever but I know my children wanted their teachers to remember them and this helps them think they will.
It was all very simple and easy to put together. I put a little dirt in the bottom of each pot and then added 4 of the flowers. I added more dirt to fill the pot and keep the flowers all in place and then I glued the picture and the printable to the flat little wooden stake thing and stuck them in the dirt.
I think my grand total per pot went something like this:
pot – $0.96
flowers – ($2.28/6×4) $1.52
picture – (printed 4×6 at walgreens) $0.19
everything else I had on hand
grand total = $2.67
Not to shabby I don’t think and something I hope the teachers will all appreciate (yay for having all female teachers – makes giving flowers pretty easy).
I hope you’ve already started your summer and have fun things planned. I plan to enjoy every minute of the summer but will be on the look-out for beginning of the year gifts so I can maybe, hopefully be ahead of the game for once!
(sorry, apparently when this saved to post automatically it saved the one without the pictures)
