Our children’s teachers give so much of their time, talents, and energy for our children to succeed, so why not give them a little something to show your appreciation for their work?

4. I wanted to make it a tad more fancy and add a ribbon. I used the crop-a-dile and punched a hole in it. Funny thing about that…my daughters were helping me make these clip boards and were in awe that mommy was strong enough to punch a hole through ‘wood’…it’s chip board (I didn’t tell them).

5. Now to choose which ones to give to which teachers! :)
