May is crazy isn’t it? There are so many things all jammed into one little month – testing and final projects, sports, field trips, recitals, graduations, weddings, parties, Mother’s Day. Plus my anniversary! It can be a little intense. I’ve been trying to grab some time to get ahead when I can find it and one of the things I really want to get a jump on is all the gifts for this month. I had the kids with me out shopping on Saturday and with Teacher Appreciation week about to start and teachers on the brain, we went ahead and picked up supplies for a simple gift for the last day of school for their teachers.
Teachers are a big part of our kids’ lives for an entire year and while I never have a lot of money to spend on them, I do like to give them a little parting gift. I figure teachers are looking forward to summer just as much as the rest of us are – maybe even more so! 😉 So we put together a little Summer Kit in a Cup, inspired by this tag
Wish I could give credit for the saying on the tag, but frankly I’ve seen it in quite a few different forms on Pinterest lately and I’m not sure which is the original. To whomever came up with it – great job! 😉
I wanted to dress the cup up a bit so I added a vinyl monogram.
Then we filled it with goodies related to summer
Inside the cup: lemonade drink mixes, sunscreen, Chapstick with SPF, and Italian Ices.
They are now ready and waiting for the last day of school. When the time comes, I just have to remember to send them! 😉
