    Thanks for the wonderful ideas. I used the "Thanks a Latte" printable for 7 teachers this year! They turned out so cute and I know my kids' teachers will love them!

    As a long time teacher, the greatest gift is a note of sincere appreciation for the bond established between a child and teacher and recognition of the love and effort to help a child grow and learn. Flowers fade, foods and scented products may cause allergies, but the notes received are treasured for years to come. All mine are in my "special treasures" box, with a picture/s of the child and the class and addresses to keep in touch.

    I used the "helping me bloom" printable a few years ago, found the baskets at Walmart and bought the daisies at the local supermarket...I had six teachers to do this for...well, they really came out wonderfully and my son's teachers loved them! Thank so much for sharing this and all the other wonderful ideas, I'm sure I'll find something awesome to do this year as well!
