Friday Focus: Back to School Gift

Today I am getting ready for school to start.  My son will start Kindergarten in two weeks.  I have already started working on the yearbook for this year and getting ready for Meet the Teacher night.  I thought I would put together a "Teacher Survival Kit" to give to his new teacher on the first day of school.

I saw this very cute pencil container at Glue Sticks and Tape.  She made her container out of a Pringles can, but we don't eat Pringles.  Also, I wanted to make something a little larger to hold more goodies.  I found a tall, round papermache container at my local craft store to make my "pencil."

I followed her basic directions, just on a larger scale.  I have not found out who the teacher will be yet, but I will add her name to the pencil once I know.

One of the things I intend to include in the kit is a stack of these notecards.  She will have cards on hand to write Thank Yous to parents, children, or colleagues.  I will also be including other little gifts, which I will show in a future post (once it is complete).  Check back soon!
