Funny story. I had my 4 1/2 year old help me make the presents for her preschool teachers. She helped me pick out the paper and ribbons, and then I put them together. So we had two gifts, and Jilly looked at me and said "Mommy, I have four teachers...remember?!?" (And she said that with a teenager like attitude complete with one hand on her hip!) What I was able to get from talking with her more, is that she wanted to give her two teachers from last year (that she still gets to see and play with) presents as well. So we went back to my CTMH stash, picked out more paper and put together some more gifts. It was great getting to craft with my daughter, and yes I did actually let her help, even if it was just putting the pop dots on the paper and choosing which papers to use, she did have a hand (or two) in these special gifts.
We made 4 signs covering wood with CTMH papers, painted then stamped wood letters, and added a few embellishments. We used some old beads to decorate the wire handle, and it took about a half an hour to do start to finish.
Her two current teachers were given little jars filled and topped with candy. We punched out a bit of paper, and stuck a sentiment to it, added some ribbon, and boom!
Her previous teachers we put some bath salts into a little vase and used the same design of paper and sentiment, more ribbon and a decorative straight pin with a bead on it and topped it off with a cork.
