If your kid is like mine, they’ve got a lot of “professionals” in their life. As a baby, Charlie had four therapists that came to the house. Now, his classroom at school has one main teacher and three aides–all of whom could carry the title “substitute mommy.”
A lot of people struggle with good ideas on what you can buy your children’s teacher. You want to show that your appreciative, but man oh man, that Christmas budget is already pretty tight.
Soooo. . . I put together a little video blog about the gifts I made for Charlie’s teachers this year. My favorite part is that you are completely in control of the amount of money spent–it’s up to you completely and this can be done at almost any price point.
A word about my video blog:
no makeup? check
wild and crazy hair? check
slouching? sadly, check
Charlie making noise in the background? again, check
If you were hoping for a professional video, this isn’t it.
For those of you who can’t/don’t do videos–the concept is simple. Take a cute holiday container and fill it with the sorts of snack that you really wish you had at about three o’clock on a week day. Schools have heaps of legislation that prevent them from offering yummy snacks and even if they do, they’re usually expensive. Fill a container with small sized trail mix, granola bars, etc. and most teachers will be thrilled.
