Teacher Appreciation Gift
This year my kids made cute cork boards for their teachers as an appreciation gift.
I found these cork boards at Michael's Craft Store for $2.49 on clearance. IP and SP glued crayons on the border to give it a framed look. (see the third and fourth picture). They both poked their teacher's initials with the jeweled push pins and wrote a thank you note. IP wanted to use a big word instead of 'from' so he tried sincerely.... misspelled it! Good try though. Btw, SP does not like to copy IP. Since IP had both initials of his teacher, SP decided to drop the last name of his teacher and use the rest of the pins to make a line. Because IP made a frame with two crayons, he made it with one. He likes to be different!
Their teacher's were very happy because it was not another mug or lotion or candle. It was something that they could actually use in the classroom.
