My friend Kristin Dochterman Carver created the cutest end of year appreciation teachers gifts. She found the idea on Pintrest, but her version is actually cuter than the one in the original photo.
Kristin started by tracing her son’s hand to be used as the gift tag. It says “Hands Down You’re the Best.” Next she filled a clear cellophane bag with hand cream and sanitizer, a packet of tissues and box of Tic Tacs. Finally, she punched a hole in the hand tag and tied a ribbon through it and around the top of the bag to close it. She said that the hardest part was tracing her son’s hand, so you may wish to go online and find an outline of a hand to make things easier.
This is such a thoughtful, simple and inexpensive way to say thank you to teachers who have gone out of their way for your child.
Note: Kristin just messaged me and suggested that this gift bag could also include emery boards and even nail polish.
