{ Teacher Thank You Gifts }

EDITED 5.17.12: Link for the printable tag is at the 
bottom of this post! 


 I realized yesterday that I had NO gifts for my kids teachers at school. 
So after the kids awards assembly this morning I ran to Wal-Mart and did a little thank you shopping. 


I have thoroughly loved all of my kids teachers and this year was no exception. All of the kids' teacher's are so great & they all genuinely love each of their kids in class. LOVE THAT. Anyway I was a total slacker & procrastinator and had to use last years idea (which I got from Heidi Swapp). Hey my brain is goo but at least I did something, then I waited for the kids to get home off the bus (only because I was still putting them together) then we ran off to the school in hopes that the teacher's would still be there. 
We were in luck and they all LOVED this gift.
It always seem to be a big hit.
 I used a beach towel, sunscreen, magazine, and a snack. 
Top it all off with a little note and some ribbon. 
I love it when things come together quickly. 


The last day of school is tomorrow so should be busy. 
Maybe now that my kids will be home & I don't have to run around so much I can get some crafts done, heaven knows its been awhile.

EDITED: HERE IS THE LINK TO THE PRINTABLE TEACHER SUMMER TAG

    So-are those only for teachers or do new friends that live in utah that are now on the favorite friend list get one of those too? i was just wondering??
    Since you woulnd't participate in my swap-I think that just me and you should do a swap. I love getting this whole fun mail thing and I think that you really need a fun box from me. Let me know. I really am serious about this. So-let me know

  18. This was a HUGE hit at the preschool today. All the other teachers were jealous! Thanks for posting this and all your great ideas and printables. I switched it up a bit with Swedish fish instead of the rings. I added a mini glow stick set and a mini notebook shaped like a flip flop :-) I found both at Target in the dollar bins :-) Thanks again! Found you thru Pinterest :-)
