We have already started back to school here and it sure has been rough getting adjusted to new times and flow of life. One thing I like to do at the beginning of the year is to make a Back to School Teacher Gift. One that says hello and gives them something for their classroom. Since we are all just getting to know each other, school supplies are a great idea to start with and then add in some other treats.
Crayola sent me some of their Take Note! products and they are a perfect start to my Back to School Teacher Gift. I often see on teacher wish lists dry erase markers, permanent markers, pens, and more. Crayola Take Note! products have all those bases covered. One of the coolest ones they have is the dry erase markers with ink level indicators. When you are in the middle of teaching the last thing you want is a dried out marker, then having to search for a new one that works. The ink level indicator helps you know when it is getting close to drying out.
To make the Back to School Teacher Gift:
- Start with some sort of container or bag that can be re-used. Make every part of the gift useful. If your container is really deep, fill the bottom with some small packets of tissues, then layer the other items on top.
- Layer in items such as the Take Note! products, most of which are useful for any grade that is being taught. I am excited to use some of the Highlighter pens for some projects in my preschool class. Some other ideas are sticky notes, clips, hand sanitizer, mints, personalized coffee cup, etc. Speaking of coffee cups, I get ones from the dollar store and personalize them with vinyl for a quick and cost efficient gift.
- Wrap up the back to school teacher gift with a bow or ribbon and a sweet note to just say hello and wish them a great year.
Back to School Teacher gifts don’t have to be extravagant. Just a way to give a little appreciation at the beginning of the year and help stock their supply closets. Simple gestures go a long way to letting teachers know you care.
