I have discovered that I am a ‘repurposing upcycler’ when it come to my crafty gifts. I love to take ordinary things and make them unique and special.
Unique and special are a the exact words I use to describe the 4 people I made these gifts for recently. The teachers at the preschool that my now kindergartener had for the last 2 years, and her little sister and brother will have for the next few years, have gone above and beyond for us, and I wanted to say ‘Thank You’.
Now, we all know I can’t just say ‘thank you’ and call it a day. Oh no way! I had to get cutesy with it. So I decided to make some “Preschool Teacher First Day Emergency Kits”.
I know, I know, you’re thinking, “What the heck in the world?” is in a kit like that. Here’s a list of the few goodies I was able to fit in the tins I had on hand. (To be honest, I could have filled a container at least 3 times the size of these tins with all the different ideas of things I wanted to include, but you deal with what you have I guess.)
- 1 package of 20 anti-bacterial hand wipes
- 1 ‘package’ of 6 crayons
- 3 pieces of Hershey’s chocolate
- 1 tea bag
- 1 ‘package’ of Band-Aids with Neosporin
These tins were incredibly easy to put together, and yet look so stunning.
I am going to put some more together over the weekend, and I will put a quick tutorial together.
