The end of the school year is fast approaching and before you come to that last day—the day you’re supposed to have a gift for the teacher and haven’t even thought about it yet… I have an idea for you!
My son was in Pre-K this year, so it’s just your luck that we had to do the teacher gifts already. We made two for each teacher—a crayon name plaque and a flower pot with marigold. Here’s how we made the crayon picture:
- Gather all your supplies. You will need a box of new crayons, a picture frame, glue, and a permanent marker.
- Arrange the crayons on the picture frame so you know how many you’ll need and how they need to be cut.
- Glue the crayons onto the glass frame, leaving room at the bottom for the teacher’s name.
- Write the teacher’s name on the bottom in permanent marker and you’re set! If you have the time, then ann alternative would be to print out the teacher’s name on a piece of paper and place it in the frame to show up beneath the crayons.
P.S. A trick I learned, after spelling a name wrong, is that if you rub a dry erase marker over a sharpie and then wipe it—it will erase the permanent marker. For real. It’s amazing.
