With D's first year of play school came another first, his first teacher's gift. I couldn't think of anything cuter than something made by him. So we cut out a pair of trees and a pair of stars out of cardboard and brought out the paints.
I glued the two pieces together with some yellow pipe cleaner for the loop. Next came the card. We put away the paints and brought out some markers. We made two.
While playing with some food coloring and a paper napkin I thought strips of the napkin would be perfect to get the cards a more finished look. Don't they look pretty?
I placed the card and ornament in a clear organza bag along with a candy cane. :) What do your kids make gifts for their teachers? Or do you buy a present? At what age does handmade stop being cute?
