This year we made the same teacher gifts as last year for my son’s teacher and classroom assistant.
For each vase you need
- a straight drinking glass
- about 30 new pencils per vase (more than you think!)
- some blue tac
- a glue gun (I assume most glues would work, but I like to live dangerously!)
- some flowers
- the patience of a saint (if you have an enthusiastic 5 year old helper)
Easy to make, as long as you remain IN CHARGE of the glue gun and I find it works better to attach the pencils to the drinking glass using blue-tac first.
Remove 2 or 3 pencils at a time, dab on
too much some glue and attach the pencils.
Allow glue to dry, add flowers and water, and maybe attach some ribbon.
So another school year is over, and my first year of having all three at school.
Here are my kids way back in September
And now at the end of June
Eldest daughter was delighted to have missed another opportunity to have her photo taken, especially in her beloved school uniform!
Is school finished where you live?
