[Teacher Appreciation] Alphabet Gifts
I thought this was such a fun idea for a preschool or kindergarten teacher. I received a letter from my daughter's room mother. She sent a white lunch sack home with each student with a letter of the alphabet on it. Our assignment was to put some small gifts for the teacher in the bag. The gifts needed to be items that start with that letter of the alphabet. They could be homemade, store bought, or whatever. And they needed to be able to fit inside of the bag. We've been out of town, so I only had one afternoon to put mine together. I probably could have been a little more creative if I had known earlier. Oh well.
We were actually one of the lucky ones. We were given two bags to fill. We were assigned the letters N and Y. "N" was fairly easy. We decided to get some nail care products (nail polish, nail files, etc), a notepad, and some Hershey Nuggets. Some other ideas we were considering...a necklace, Nutter Butters, Newtons, and Nerds. The letter "Y" was a little harder. We went with YooHoo drink packets, yogurt covered pretzels, York peppermint patties, and a gift card for frozen yogurt. Some other ideas we thought of were Yahtzee, a yo-yo, and anything yellow.
My daughter loves her kindergarten teacher--and so do I! She does such a fantastic job. I'm sure that you feel the same way about the teachers in your life. Take a minute to do something nice to thank them for all they do.
I've got a few other "appreciation" tricks up my sleeve...so be sure to stick around!
