Well, I am the teacher in our family since we homeschool :) But, when I was in school and my boys were in daycare/preschool, we gave the "teachers" handmade Yule stars (Scandinavian folded stars) that I made out of fabric. I made them each a set of different sizes and colors. They are something that I make "while watching tv"...they are my keep fingers busy project since I always have to be doing something :)

Thanks for the chance at this great RAK!

PS: I love the lunchpail!!! I think I want to make myself one since I have so many stickers and certificates for the kids but they always get all mixed up in the drawers! What a cool gift!!!

beautiful lunch pails Paula! And I love what you filled them with! I am planning on giving a set of blank notecards to each of our teachers in it's own little "envelope box." And I might throw in one of those hot chocolate cones that Cheryl shared about on the Fiskateers blog!

Debbie

Paula these look super, I'm sure the girls teachers will be very happy to receive them. The both look great and you did 'male' very well!

Lyn Dwyer

Ooh ...these are just gorgeous PAULA......wish I taught your kids.....LOL!Thanks for sharing.....love how you have used the products...

I don't have to make any, but I do know that my mom is always on the lookout for cool stuff. Last year the teacher got a "housecleaning" basket. Took a basket and filled it with all sorts of cleaning stuff and shrink wrapped it to make it look professional and it was a hit. One year we even gave some homemade quilts. i also recall a Christmas where they got some knitted house slippers which got exclamations of excitement as well.

I am covering a tin with M&M (the lollies)scrapbooking paper that I got in a swap ages ago and will put homemade lollies like toffee, coconut ice, fudge etc in it for my daughters preschool teachers.

These are wonderful gifts!!! Beautiful job :=) I think I will recommend this to my GD's mommy.

Your lunch pails are gorgeous & I love how you decorated them inside & out. Fortunately I no longer have to do school stuff or teacher's gifts. My son is now 21 & beyond that now. lol When he was in school I used to do 'tole painting' and made most of the gifts for the teachers. I wish now that I had of taken pictures of some of them. One year in particular, I made the teacher a 'lady' teacher doll all out of wood & it was gorgeous. The one & only I ever made as it took hours. lol TFS

Christine Cleary

I don't have kids so no teachers to make for, but I am making gifts for the ladies I work with, I am going to make a tag album for them to put family and friends birthdays in - I am going to make a tag for each month.
I love the tin idea, working on who I can make a variation for.

great gift idea, Paula!!! my youngest is a junior in high school, so I don't do teacher gifts anymore, but when my 6 children were younger, I always baked applesauce bread for the teachers' gifts at Christmas & pond cake for end of the year gifts!!! the teachers would always say how much they appreciated homemade baked goods because they didn't have the time to bake!

Paula these look fantastic - very lucky teachers.

Wow these look adorable for an elementary teacher! I love the poem too and may have to steal that. This year I am buying the big jumbo chocolate bars and altering the slip-off wrapper for an easy 'sweet treat.'

I usually have to think of something to give our teachers around here, last year, we made a basket of housecleaning stuff,our teachers were very impressed,and the year before we made a basket with washroom stuff,such as soap, towels, hand cleaner,tooth brushes, toothpaste,etc.and 3 years ago we made them a rug with red heart wool,if I;ll find a picture of them , I'll post them on my gallery,

Charity Turner

Paula these are beautiful. Last year my daughter took chooclate bars and printed her own sleeve to slip over the top with her own list of teacher ingrediants (things she loves about her teachers. IE: Loving, Compassionate, Smart, Takes time with students

Cindy

What a fantastic idea !! I LOVE the idea of stickers and rewards and stuff (I loved earning them when I was a kid).

No teacher gifts for me this year as its DS1's first year of high school, and DS2 isn't off to school for another 4 or 5 years LOL.

Beautiful box. What a great gift! My idea is to give a teacher a pack of homemade cards. It's a gift that continues to give and doesn't add to nicknack clutter.

I love those lunchboxes! Great job! I am making our Church teachers little paper totes made from cardstock & printed paper. Included in each tote will be 10 assorted homemade cards with envelopes. I think they will enjoy them!

Dawn Stan

Beautiful Paula. I know when I have decorated tins in the past for the teachers they loved them. I used paint cans a few years ago and filled them with similar items and lots of stickers (you know the well done etc type of ones). One year I decorated a tin for Leah's teacher and put bath stuff in it. Another year I did a paint tin for Kady's male teacher and put liquers, chocolates and a bottle of nice port.

The teachers always love the tins. Not sure what to do for Leah's teacher this year. Will probably do the paint tin once again or something similar.

PS. Please don't add me in the RAK.

These are wonderful! Love them...I still have a teachers gift to make for my Granddaughter's teacher, this is just the inspiration I needed to get finished.
I made large paint tins for my Grandson's to give their teachers. Their Mom filled them homemade cookies and hot cocoa & a mug. They both loved them!

Melanie

I got pictures from the teacher (they get little sheets of individual pics from the school pics of each kid to do projects with) and I made a really simple mini album with a pic of each student on each page. Then let the kids write a note to the teacher. The teacheres loved them. In fact I saw they still had them in their rooms for the other students to look at and that was 2 years ago!
