Summer vacation and End of Year Teacher Gift {idea}

Life is keeping me in, barely staying afloat. I'm embarrassed to see how long it's been since I've posted anything (meanwhile I pay money to keep this blog up) so I really do intend on being better about sharing and writing. So much happens every day!

My oldest children are on Summer Vacation!

I have a couple things that I'm trying and figure other moms might appreciate...but before I get to that, I wanted to share my end of year gift:

As the homeroom mom, I pulled together a questionnaire about the teacher that ended up being REALLY sweet. I've included my son's responses (he does not share his mother's love of penmanship, but you get the idea...and I'm so impressed that he's using THREE colors in his picture!)

I really struggled with how to best contain all 24 letters for the teacher. I wasn't sure if this was a keepsake she'd want to hold on to forever, but I also wanted it to be contained and nicely presented. I only had a limited time to pull it together (so probably would've pulled together a Shutterfly book if I had more time!) This fun clip is from the stamping aisle in Hobby Lobby.

I was able to purchase copies of Mo Willems "The Thank You Book" for both my Pre-K son + my 1st grade son's teachers. This book is the 25th (and final) Elephant and Piggy book--and I felt like for these ages, it is a perfect book to gift teacher's for their classroom library.

I used my silhouette machine to create a sticker to put inside the book, and as part of the wrapping.

The stickers are freebies from
