I can see doing a few of these in advance at the beginning of the year as thank you's for presenters and field trips :) already ready to go! :) Or a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Card - using a thumbprint from each child to make the balloons!
Yesterday I shared the teacher gifts my children handed out, today I have the cards that accompanied the gifts. The kids wrote "thank you" in their own hand writing for a personal touch. The card pictured features my 8 year.
Mothers Day or Teacher's Appreciation handprint flower card. At Montessori they are with their teachers for three years. I'd like to try to remember to do a handprint each year, then give this as a gift at the end of the third year.
