School Bell: Teacher Gifts?
••Cookies or Breads the children can make with your help.
••Make a mini book that tells what the child likes about that teacher --even just a single word per page [ex: patient, funny, fair] with the pages colored and decorated. Bind and wrap.
••Make a bunch of whisks assembly line if you have several kids. The one pictured is for a Christmas theme but it is easily adjusted. Put any Thanksgiving or autumn candy in a small bag, stick in the whisk, wrap in plastic wrap and tie with ribbon. Add sentiment signed by the child. "We whisk you a Happy Thanksgiving!"
••School supplies that the teacher otherwise spends their own money to buy. Examples: A "Mid-Year Survival Kit with fresh new pencils, a couple of rulers, glue sticks, box of tissues, hand sanitizer, sticky notes, etc. They can use them at home or at school.
••Gift Card to a local bookstore, coffee shop, movie theater [maybe even an ice cream shoppe?!]
