Happy Teachers’ Day 2014!

I hesitated a bit about whether to document our teachers’ day gifts this year, since they didn’t quite turn out as I had imagined them to! But ah well, it’s not about having a Pinterest perfect life, is it?

So here’s what we made, as inspired by what the youths made for all the mothers in church for Mother’s Day earlier this year! ๐Ÿ™‚

It turned out less gorgeous, mostly because I used fabric markers instead of fabric paint, I think. But it was good to be able to get the girls involved, and in inking the centres and stamping…

I figured totes would be a very practical gift, since teachers need to transport worksheets and craft materials, etc, from home to school very often. A canvas tote is both hardy and environmentally-friendly so why not? We personalised it further with their names stamped on the internal top seam too. ๐Ÿ™‚

K is now old enough to pen her own message, and decorate the insides with her favourite drawings. I think it is such personal touches that mean the most to teachers! Even B was able to participate by tracing over the penciled lines I wrote and ‘write’ her chinese teacher’s name. She had fun randomly sticking butterflies on pop dots all around too!

We also used some of my scrapbooking stash to make a variety of cards for all the teachers they have. We are grateful for the genuinely caring teachers (and principal) K&B have got, and how they go the extra mile to educate them. It’s certainly not easy!

Wishing all teachers a very blessed Teachers’ Day!

p.s. If you’re interested, this was what we made last year

    That’s a practical and useful gift idea. This year we got the teachers cups since they are always talking and reminding and nagging at the kids ๐Ÿ™‚ The cards for the teachers were all done by Sophie and she’s looking forward to give them to her teachers tomorrow.

    It’s a lovely idea! And at least it’s handmade. I didn’t even document my gifts cos I bought them (although there was some name writing and sticker customization involved) :p
