Teacher Appreciation Gifts and the end of the school year.

I love the teachers that my kids got this year. One of my kids had some real struggles but her teacher was the awesomest in getting her to not only do the work that needed to be done but coach her in a way that got my daughter to do her best. 

As a final teachers appreciation gift I made the glitter zippy bag for the women teachers. They aren't fancy by any means but they are really cute and my girls added a few extra items to each bag that would show their appreciation. My son on the other hand also had glitter zippy bags made but he was just as happy with the Starbucks gift cards that were provided as well. 

 

 I originally found this at Hobby Lobby. It is so sparkly. I need to clean out my machine now though.

Shrinky Dinks to the rescue here. They loved drawing out something really cute and then I heated them with my heat gun and we all watched them shrink down. I then put them on the chains. Each daughter had a different idea of how she wanted it done. Heaven forbid that they should be he same.

They turned out great and from what I understand the teachers loved them as well.
