Teacher Appreciation Week

Happy Monday, everyone! It's teacher appreciate week at our school. And we just love both our kids teachers this year. They are awesome and I am so grateful for all the time they spend with my kids. I wanted to do something special for both of them. I've seen this tackle box idea in the blog-world and it's always in the back of my mind to try. In fact, I already had a tackle box (covered with dust!) in my closet. My son was excited to help me with this appreciation gift for his teacher.

I decorated the top with some Dutch Mustard Soup papers from Jillibean Soup. My son helped me cut the letters on the Cricut and add the stars.


And we filled it with all sorts of stuff that teachers need. Glue sticks, starbursts, paper clips, hershey kisses, rubber bands...the essentials!!

Because sometimes you need a paper clip...and sometimes you need a sugar fix. Too bad a bottle of wine wouldn't fit inside. So make sure you appreciate all the teachers in your lives this week. They work really hard and I know would love just a note of thanks!!

Have a great Monday, friends!

OMG - you are awesome?!?!? Can I please teach your kids? I am really thankful for the parents and administrators who are being so sweet to teachers this week. I felt totally pampered at school today and it really made me feel that people think I am doing a good job. Everyone should get to feel that way about his/her work:)
