An EXTRA special thank you!

I like to always remember my son's special area teachers.  For the end of the year gifts I wrapped a pack of Extra gum and put them in a clear bag added some paper strips and attached a cute label.  The paper strips I found at the Dollar Tree and the clear bags at

I attached a label and ribbon and they came out cute. 

I made labels for art, library, music, Spanish, gym, principal, secretary, bus driver and a teacher.

Thank you for Helping Us Bloom

The end of the year is quickly approaching.  I was so envious of one of my gilfriend's gift from her amazing parents last year.  I couldn't wait to make this gift for my son's teacher.  I found the pot at the Christmas Tree Shop for $3.99.  The flowers are from the Dollar Tree they cam in bunches of 8 so I needed 3=$3.00.  They also had the foam green block to stick the flowers in at the Dollar Tree, so far the gift is up to 8 bucks.  I then needed a picture of each child to hot glue on the center of the flowers.  I am his class Mom so myself and another Mom are collecting to make a giftcard plant.  There's nothing better than getting giftcards:) 

After placing the flowers in the floral styrofoam I punched out the faces to hot glue them in the center of each flower.

Here it is with the pictures glued on and a sign that says Thank you for helping us bloom in Kindergarten.  I also stopped by a local flower shop and to get the picks to hold the gift cards.

I Hope You "Dig" Your Summer!

I LOVE the Dollar Tree and spend way too much money there.  The parents at my son's preschool usually do goddie bags or a small gift at the end of the year.  I thought instead of putting together a goodie bag I would give each child a shovel with a cute label on it.  These can be given to your students as an end of the year gift or switch it up for a birthday party.  I made these LABELS to attach to the shovel.  Enjoy =)

Happy Mother's Day

I know Mother's Day is over and I hope everyone had a great day.  I sure did with my boys.  We spent the day at the boardwalk.  The weather was beautiful!!  My son was super excited to give me his gift that he made for me in school.  It was so cute I had to share.  I am definitely going to use this idea next year.  It is a low cost gift and practical because everyone uses bags.  You can pick these up at your foodstore for $1.00.  Their school mascot is the Bee, so the bees are my son's finger prints. Then attached to it is a coupon booklet.  Check it out....isn't this adorable?!

I would love to do this next year with my class.  I would like to attach a tag with some sort of poem.  Any ideas?
