End of Year Gift Ideas

The end of the school year has always been a big deal to me, especially when I was teaching.  A class gets so close throughout the year which made it hard to say goodbye to my little friends!  Every year I would make a slideshow video with pictures that I took throughout the year.  We would watch it as a class and then I would give each student a copy.  The parent reactions were the best…they loved them!! Even though I am not teaching I still like to give little end of the year gifts to the teachers and classmates of Finley and Zane!  Below is what I made last year and since we are at a different school this year I am going to do the same! I got a bunch of beach balls on sale, printed out a tag, and tied it with mu favorite bakers twine…sweet and simple!


For the office staff, I rounded up cute tumblers, printed a tag, and filled the cups with lemonade and orange instant drink packets!

For the teachers last year, we collected money from the whole class and gave them visa gift cards which was very appreciated.  This year I am going solo on my gift and getting a mani/pedi gift card.  Still putting it together so I’ll report back with the final product!
