Being a teacher is a hard job. The countless hours spent in the classroom and at home preparing lessons, grading papers, mentoring kids and more. And they make such an impact on our kids’ lives. There are two teachers I remember in particular that really helped me through some tough times and I don’t know if I would be the same person I am today if it wasn’t for them.
As much as I’d like to be able to give every teacher spa vacation getaways, it’s just not possible (and definitely isn’t in the budget). But when I was at Target the other day picking up a few things, and by a few I mean I went in for two things and walked out with a cart full of stuff, I saw these little flower planting kits in the Dollar Spot. It’s actually called Bullseye’s Playground now but I’m so used to calling it the Dollar Spot I don’t know if I’ll ever change.
I picked up three flowers , they also had peppers and herbs, and was off to explore the rest of the store. When I got home I got out some bakers’ twine (which I also got at the Dollar Spot on a previous trip) and made these cute little labels. Then I used a hole punch to make a hole to put the twine through in the tag and tied it to the little plant. Target also has a ton of other cute garden accessories like gloves, shovels and even little garden gnomes in Bullseye’s Playground too!Print your tags here.
These little gifts are a great way to tell your kids’ teachers thanks for all they do without spending a fortune. Give them to them now or wait until the end of the year. How do you like telling your kids’ teachers thanks?
