I spent part of my morning today making gifts for my sons' teachers. It is Teacher Appreciation Week, after all!
As a teacher myself, I always like the simple, heartfelt gestures the best. A thank-you card written by a student just melts my heart. I actually keep them all in a file in my desk so that I can take them out for inspiration on a hard day.
So for my boys' teachers, I started with these paint can containers that I picked up at Michael's for about $2 each. I tied on some ribbon and a name tag.
Then I filled them with homemade cookies that my boys helped me make yesterday. I wanted them to cool overnight so that the containers didn't get all steamy from warm cookies.
And voila, a simple, homemade gift that I hope will brighten my boys' teachers' day!
