My son, who is in 4th grade, was part of a tutor program at his school this year. The program paired a 4th or 5th grade student with a 1st grader to help improve their reading skills. My son really bonded with the boy he was tutoring, it was a great experience for him. The program was run by 3 parent volunteers, who gave up so much time to run this program. The kids had to be at school 30 minutes early every day and there was always a parent volunteer present. Today is the tutor party and I made these for my son to give to the parents who run the program.
This was a ridiculously easy gift to put together. The boxes of Junior Mints were $1 at Target (yes, i'm a big spender). I wrapped them in school themed paper, printed the sentiment on the computer and tied it up with some twine.
I found the sentiment idea on Pinterest when I searched 'teacher appreciation gifts'. There are so many great ideas out there!
Our Target has lots of different candies in these 'movie theater' style boxes, and they are all $1. They make great gifts! Here are a few other ideas:
Whoppers: You are a Whopper of a ____________! (teacher, volunteer, help, friend...)
Reeses Pieces: You are a great teacher, We love you to pieces!
Lifesavers: Thanks for being a Lifesaver!
Skor Bar: We Skored having you for a teacher this year!
100Grand Bar: You are worth more than 100 Grand!
What other ideas can you come up with? With the end of school right around the corner, I will definitely be making more of these. They are super easy and fast to put together, great for when your kid tells you 8 hours before they need it. Ha ha!!
Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today!
