Welcome Creative Crafters!
I scoured the web (Are they even calling it that any more?) for teacher appreciation ideas. There a lot of good ones out there, but nothing I wanted to do personally. So, as usual, I made up my own thing. I have boys that are not exactly the easiest of children and I'm sure their teachers have to put forth an extra effort on them. So, I wanted to do something a little special. I'm fortunate enough to have my oldest child attend a small, neighborhood school. I made a plate full of cookies for all of the teachers in his school. I put them in the teachers lounge for all to enjoy. Chocolate chip cookies are kind of a delicacy, here in Belgium. Especially, home made ones, and I made his teacher one of those french fry boxes with her own, extra large cookies in it. Below, is the tag I used on my delivery basket. (Up-cycled clothing tag)
Too bad the day I chose to bake was one of summer's hottest. Man, my kitchen was hot!
The chocolate actually started to melt in the car on the way to both schools. I never saw that coming.
Awe! I dropped one of the cookies. I guess I'll have to just throw it away. As if?! Hehehe...
These lucky teachers actually received cookies that were still a little warm.
Here are the french fry boxes. The template can be found on www.tipjunkie.com. My staple for creative inspiration. As you can see, I used some very old scrapbooking paper that has been sitting around for over a decade. The embellishments definitely made a difference. Bright and fun and calm and cool. Excellent for Elementary Ed.
My youngest son has Autism. He goes to a special school where he has at least 6 different, specialty teachers. That's a lot of gifts to make! That's also why I chose something like this.
A basket full of goodies for some well deserving teachers. I made two plates full with about 50 cookies on each plate and then the super large cookies for 8 teachers. It took me all morning to bake the cookies and make the boxes and I probably spent around $10. Not bad for the buck, eh?!
