I know what you were all thinking.
Hmm, Meghan hasn't really been blogging.
She hasn't been feeling well.
Oh a post from Meghan beginning with Better Late than...
Get it far from your minds people.
There is no womb in the inn.
Know what I mean.
I mean it's nothing like this post being late.
Most schools are starting in the next week or so.
We start two days after Labor Day. So I have time.
I never ever showed you what I made Cheeks' first grade teacher & his guidance counselor as an end of the year gift.
I got the idea from Lil Luna
She's LDS & you know those LDS girls are some crafty biatches.
Altho, I think I was passed over for the creative gene although I am LDS.
Anyway I wanted to do something fun that didn't cost much but got the point of thank you across.
So I made the "Now that the strain of school is over gift"
I bought two strainers at the Dollar Spot at Target.
Bought a big ole honkin bag of Mars candy.
Then I bought two $10 gift cards to Target (because who doesn't love Target).
I found tissue paper & name tags on clearance.
First I filled the strainer:
I wrote on the outside of the gift card "Now that the strain of the school year is over, relax & enjoy your summer".
I then wrapped it:
I had Cheeks take them to school & give them out.
His teacher loved hers.
I haven't heard from the counselor but she may have been on maternity leave at that point.
Anyway, I think it turned out super cute and I have Lil Luna to thank for you.
Do you do anything special for the teachers, etc at the end of school year? Or even at the beginning?
