Can you believe it’s June already? I can’t! It seems like just yesterday I was happily purchasing school supplies and labelling them with my littles’ names in preparation for the first day of school. Now here we are at the end of the school year and it’s time to celebrate the year that was.
Miss A is finishing up first grade and she has learned so much this year – she can read independently, she can do math equations and she knows much more about life under the sea than I do! She has also started to really love Irish Dancing. She competed in her first Feis this year and although she didn’t take home the great big medals, she tried her best and I couldn’t be prouder of my little dancer.
Miss E was in preschool this year and her biggest accomplishment would have to be how many friends she has made! She started the year sitting quietly on the carpet listening to her teacher. Now she shows up in class and half of the kids call out her name and want to play with her. She has another preschool year ahead of her before she’s off to kindergarten, but my baby is definitely growing up!
Alright, enough proud mama-ing! It’s time for the project! Last year the girls and I put together these adorable gifts for their teachers. We filled insulated cups with drink mix and candy and added a thank you card.
For the teachers this year, I’m going with a Summer Fun theme! I found these adorable bright and sunny beach towels at Walmart in the states. Miss A was my helper in putting the gifts together.
To the beach towel I added some candy, sunscreen and some bright summery nail polish for a fun beachy pedicure, and a pair of flip flops. I wrapped it up and added a little card signed by the girls.
I also made some cute cards (if I do say so myself!). The girls will write messages to each of their teachers inside, plus there will be room for a note from me!
We are giving these gifts to their preschool, first grade and dance teachers. I hope they will love them!
