Since it is customary to give teachers flowers for Teacher Appreciation week, I thought “How can we do something that won’t die in a week?”. One of my CTMH team mates Michelle Auten (our resident paper princess) shared some fantastic paper flowers with us at the last team meeting.
I decided to go with small painted terracotta pots instead, I like to have the kids have their hands in on gifts that are to be from them. This project was perfect in my mind for the teachers because now they keep their flowers forever with no digging, planting, or watering to worry about.
I have to say that the one thing I did forget was to put the year and my daughters name on them…oops! And just like at Christmas time, Jilly reminded me “Mommy I have four teachers. I may not see Mrs. Cohrs and Mrs. Monarch everyday, but I do still see them.” So again we made them for her current teachers and her teachers from last year.
