Today was Carson's last day of school. I can't believe another year has come and gone and I really can't believe she will be in the 3 year old program next year. My how time really does fly!
Here is a picture of Carson with her daddy and Miss Sara on her first day. I couldn't go because I was in the hospital with baby Clara.
Here is a picture of her last day of school. She wasn't very cooperative. This is what happens when I stick around too long. She really does love her teachers.
Back to the EOY gift. I like to do an End of the Year gift for her teacher's to thank them for all of their hard work during the school year. For the EOY gift I like to do a beach theme. Summer=beach in my mind and I thought it would be nice to get them all geared up for a little R and R.
I put together a bucket full of goodies centered around the beach! Inside the bucket I put a towel (Target $6) I monogrammed with their names. All year long we are reminded to put our child's name on everything that comes to school, so I thought I would personalized their towel so if they lost it everyone would know who it belonged to:) I included this adorable gathered clutch from Noodlehead. I changed it a little. I put a wrist strap and made it beach friendly by sewing vinyl on the inside. Their cell phones and other valuables can stay clean and dry! I also threw in these flip-flops and a gift certificate to get those toes ready for their beach debut! I always like to include a poem that fits the theme of whatever it is I am doing. So I wrote this and placed it with the gift certificate.
Kick up your feet,
And have some fun.
Summer is here,
The school year is done!
Relax with a pedi,
It's calling your name.
So you can debut those feet,
Without and shame!
Carson says, "Thank you!"
For a great year with you.
We can't thank you enough
For all that you do!
Carson and Family
I gave these to the director of the pre-school along with a pedi gift card. I eliminated the bow and just used the decorative button on her flops. I like this version too!
On the outside of the bucket (Target $2.50) I printed their names out on magnetic paper.
If I had another hour I would have thrown in a couple of these, but 1 am rolled around too soon and this momma was tired!!
I hope this helps gives you some ideas with your EOY gift. Happy summer break!!
