Teacher-Emergency-Kit-01

Year after year, I struggle with finding the perfect gifts for Bunbun’s teachers. Everyone always seems to give the same gifts time and time again and I try my best to be unique and give gifts they have not have received in the past.

This year, I decided to create a fun (but easy) teacher emergency kit, which I am excited to share with you today. It’s an excellent gift for your child’s teacher; whether it be for teacher appreciation week, a birthday or just because. It’s also great for the older kids that may have a locker at school.

The Future is so Bright: End of Year Teacher Gift

 

Seriously, when I saw this idea somewhere online….a part of me wanted to get up and dance! It was the perfect gift for a perfect teacher. I was more than excited to take on this challenge and while it did take time, the end result was totally worth it. Tears of happiness!

I took photos of all the children against a solid colored background and asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. I then imported all of my images into photo editing software and carefully cut the backgrounds out. I then added their names and future professions, I printed the image on 11″ x 14″ photo paper at Costco for only $3.99. (Total SCORE!)

I found a frame on Amazon and once it arrived, I couldn’t wait to put the image inside. The end result was nothing short of amazing! Bunbun’s teacher absolutely loved her gift and said it was one of the most creative gifts she had ever received. Sometimes, a little effort can go a long way. She will always remember her Kindergarten class of 2015!

Interested in making one of these for your child’s teacher? Leave a comment or shoot me an email. If there is enough interest, maybe I can upload the artwork I created for these professions…

Spring Classroom Door > Teacher Appreciation

It was so much fun turning Bunbun’s Kindergarten class into little flowers this Spring! I made a chain link rainbow out of construction paper scraps and drew my little watering can with the projector. The grass was a single strip of bulletin paper and I used the Martha Stewart Fringe Scissor to create the blades of grass. I then cut the letters in our teachers lounge and added them to the pink poster board for an extra pop of color. The students loved looking for each other on their flowers and her teacher really appreciated the wording on the door.

What fun Spring decorations and/or themes have you used?

The Lorax Bulletin Board > Spring > Earth Day

I personally wasn’t so welcoming of Spring this year. I love the winter months here in South Florida and never want them to end! I swear, the weather is just perfect…and so is my hair. Bunbun’s teacher loves Dr. Seuss, so for Earth Day, we just had to do a Lorax Themed board. I again took to her amazing projector with my poster board and went to town. The grass was triple folded bulletin paper and I used the Martha Stewart Fringe Scissor to create the blades of grass. Once the board was up, we were finally able get some work up there for everyone to enjoy.

The Giving Tree Bulletin Board

When Bunbun’s Kindergarten Teacher mentioned that she wanted to do a board for “Random Acts of Kindness,” I immediately thought of The Giving Tree. It was one of my favorite books as a child and I had to jump at the opportunity! I searched on Google for the book cover and used her teachers projector to project the image of the boy. I drew it on poster board and thickened the lines with a sharpie. I colored him in, cut him out and up he went! She absolutely LOVED this board and plans to leave it up until she retires in a few years.
