Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

My husband used to be an elementary school teacher. It was always interesting to see what kinds of gifts his students would bring him. A lot of times, he would end up with loads of candy. Candy is nice, but there is only so much candy one person can take before it gets a little old! When it was time to come up with a gift to give my daughter’s preschool and dance teachers, I knew I wanted to give them something practical and personal. That’s when we came up with this darling handwritten water bottle teacher gift idea!

Back to school! Can you even believe that it is time to think about school again? My husband used to be a classroom teacher and I always loved seeing the different teacher gift ideas that people had and that he would receive.

Most elementary school teachers don’t get a prep hour, so a gift to let them restore energy and get a little rest and relaxation during recess is perfect! [Read more…]

Back to school means something totally different when you have a child who isn’t in school yet. Just because my daughter doesn’t go to school yet, doesn’t mean I don’t want to spend the time teaching her and let her make her own discoveries. That is why I chose to make a magnetic chalkboard and dry erase board that can be used as a learning center for all kinds of learning activities.

Cut the red vinyl into little strips and cut those strips into smaller sections. Put those red pieces in a line in the center of each of the sections. Now my daughter can practice writing on this dry erase board that can easily sit on her lap.

She can also draw on the chalkboard and play with all of her Pre K learning packs that she has. They can easily stick on the cookie sheet because it is magnetic. You can find tons of these Pre K packs on my friends blog, Over the Big Moon.
