It’s been a little while since I last posted. A long while, really. I went back to teaching this year. It’s been great…and hectic…and my little blog has been the most neglected. But it’s Teacher Appreciation Week and I just couldn’t let myself miss this opportunity to share some new ideas I’ve been thinking about. I asked my daughter this year if she wanted to do one big TAW gift or a little gift each day. She decided on a little treat each day. Personally, I think that’s the best way to go. Teachers are not a picky people. A candy bar or some new post-it notes always excites Plus, she’s in 5th grade this year and I know this is pretty much it.
First up…the updated tea-riffic tag. These water bottle covers were the original tea-riffic idea. It’s a cute, easy, and inexpensive idea. This year I wanted to do something just a little different.
I bought individual sweet tea bottles (found them at Target) for her teachers, tied them up with a cute paper straw and added a tag. I think they turned out adorable. Still a cute, easy, and inexpensive idea. And although I’m a little late getting these up, you can still make these and send them to school this week. I’ve set up two downloads…one has 3 ‘for my tea-riffic teacher’ and 3 ‘for a tea-riffic teacher’ tags, the other download is ‘for a tea-riffic person.’ I get so many requests to change wording that I thought I would try and make something a bit more generic for some of you. Hope that helps. I, of course, signed Lauren’s name to the tag, but the download is blank for your little cutie to sign for themselves.
p.s. my teacher teammates are getting a tag on some sweet tea tomorrow, too!
