Teacher Gift

Today was my 3 year old's, last day of school. I wanted to do something nice for her teacher because I know how much time it takes to prepare lessons for young kids. Teachers put in a lot of extra hours and I wanted to show Miss Emily our appreciation for being such a fantastic teacher. We need more of those! This is what I did for her:

I got a bucket from Target and put her name on the front with some apples. I used my Silhouette to cut the vinyl. I love that thing! She gives her students a gumball every day as they leave if they followed directions for that day. So I decided to use gumballs for the filler. I put some tissue paper in the very bottom and filled it a little with gumballs. Then I bought a circle shaped piece of floral styrofoam to hold some apple-shaped cake pops I made. And I covered that with wax paper so it wouldn't get any little styrofoam flakes on the gumballs. I put another piece of tissue paper around that so when I put it in the bucket, the tissue paper would stick up out of the bucket.

Then I stuck all my little apple cake pops in the holes I pre-made in the styrofoam circle. I had previously covered each one with a little bag and tied a red bow around the bottom. So they are all individually wrapped. Once my cake pops were in, I filled around them with the rest of the little gumballs and nestled a Target gift card in the center with a little thank you note from me and my little girl.

Here is a close up of the apple cake pops. They have cute, smiling faces. A fun gift for an awesome teacher!

My little girl loved giving her gift to Miss Emily.

Here they are together on her last day of school.

They had a fun carnival party.

We love Miss Emily!
