As parents, we truly appreciate the time and effort teachers spend with our children, so how do we show our thanks at the holidays?
I've been a teacher for over 20 years and here is one of my FAVORITE gifts that I received in 2016 from one of my preschoolers.
Smells of the Season Potpourri.
Inside a wide-mouth Ball canning jar place 2 Clementines, 2 Cinnamon Sticks, 6 Cloves, and a half cup of Fresh Cranberries.
Tie a ribbon around it with a note similar to the one in the picture and you're done.
By the time my tea was ready, I could smell the wonderful scents from my gifted potpourri---instant relaxation!
Today is Day Four of my potpourri simmering on the stove. I've added water each day and enjoyed a wonderful scented kitchen, despite the growing pile of dirty dishes.
Don't have time to assemble Potpourri Jars???
Teachers LOVE handmade cards from students, no matter what the age or ability or media. No time to draw a picture? Tuck a small gift card in with your child's or family photo. Gift cards enjoyed by teachers include Starbucks, Amazon, Book Stores, Local Restaurants, and Nail Salons.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
