End of the school year - Teacher Gift

My sister has 2 girls that are in school (pre-school and 2nd grade). She asked me to help her come up with an idea for a crafty idea for them. I wasn't feeling too original that day, so I blog stalked . . . and wound up at Tip Junkie and found this Teacher Gift that was made by Dawn.

I just printed the name and the giant letter on cardstock and observed while my sister and niece cut and glued on the crayons. So I didn't make this craft myself . . . just participated a bit and found the idea. But I instantly fell in love with it.

I've always had an addiction to Crayola. I have a box full of Crayola stuff (books, crayons, umbrella, and other random things. I think when my kids are grown I'm going to have a hard time sharing my crayons. I like them to stay pretty, so I'll probably have to keep my set separate. OCD I guess :) I don't like using highlighters or those red pencils to mark my scriptures, so since I was a teenager, I've used crayons. My bible is colorful!


  1. That is SO cute and such a great idea! I'll have to bookmark it for when Sienna gets into school!

  2. Wow! That is SUPER cute :) Did you take a picture of the pencil holder you made me for my classroom? I looooove it! I wish I could make that crayola craft for my classroom, but it's probably too elementary. Do you have any ideas for junior high/high school classrooms? I wish we lived next to each other and could make stuff together :(

  3. Oh my goodness! I absolutely love this. Is it 'kissing up' to my child's teacher if I make one of these at the START of the school year? ;-)

  4. I made one of these for my 1st graders teacher for her birthday last week it was a huge hit! Now I am thinking of making them for all the teachers at the preschool I work at for outside their doors!
