Teacher Appreciation Gifts - From a High Schooler
I hope your holiday weekend is been going good, our it's been great!
While we celebrate this Memorial day with friends and family, let's remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Let's take a moment to honor the past, present and future soldiers and their families!
Today's post is a brag post.
Yep, today I'm showcasing none other than my daughter's work.
I didn't plan on doing a post about teacher's appreciation gifts, now that my kids are older, they're the ones who have to find out what to give to their teachers.
And that's exactly what my daughter was doing when I spotted those pretty boxes she had just painted. There was no way for her to keep me away from taking pictures of them or the little keepsakes she had created.
I think they are so PRETTY!
Out of Polymer clay she created these cute pins/buttons for each of her teachers. Each pin was done reflecting each teacher's likes or specific words they used during the year.
With the designs all finished, each piece was glazed and pins were glued on the back.
The corresponding boxes were beautifully decorated keeping in mind the subject taught by each teacher...
You can notice her ceramics teacher is a southern gal. She loves old rustic tea sets and fancy dresses.
Southern pleasures. ;)
Chapman is all about science... She is my daughter's AP Environmental teacher but she also teaches AP chemistry. This cute cat working with that pink solution definitely is up her alley.
Mr. Youngblood is also a ceramics teacher who is the school track coach. His favorite song of all time is "The eye of the tiger" which, according to my daughter, he plays repetitively before every track meet.
For a big part of the year English was about the SAT and all those weird words the teacher kept on drilling in her students minds. My daughter had Mrs. Jinks for two years and she was always up tight with the kids learning the language and slang. These words here are a few of the most common teen slang today.
Her Math Teacher always had incredible stories to tell of her latest vacations to tropical paradises, sea winds and blazing suns. This sun set paradise was just her language!
Ms. Widrick, a mega fan of the Harry Potter series, for this years spring concert conducted the orchestra and bands to play classical and memorable pieces from the Potter movies, her little present reflects it so well.
There you have them! Beautiful decorated boxes and keepsakes that tell a little bit of what each teacher shared during the year.
I love them! My favorite is the pink. Gotta ask for one! ;) Which one is your favorite?
Thanks for stopping by!
