Your teacher has worked hard all year! Give them the perfect summer relaxation kit! Heather is here to tell you exactly how to make one. She is a teacher so she knows exactly what teachers want!

Hello there Skip to My Lou Readers. I’m Heather Freeman from The Lovely Cupboard, and I’m so excited to be a part of the Teacher Appreciation Series this year. Being a 5th grade teacher myself, I personally know how much a token of thanks means at the end of a long school year. The kids may not realize it, but teachers are counting down the days until June just like our students!

The gift I’m sharing today is a bag filled with items that will come in handy poolside or at the beach. Start with a cute tote and fill it with all sorts of goodies. The fun part is that your child can help pick out the things for their teacher.

I purchased all the items at Wal Mart, and it took less than 15 minutes to put this bag together. I started with the tote and then picked the beach towel. I tried to pull from the colors in the beach towel for the other items.

I printed up this little note on the computer, but you could have your child write the gift tag.
If you run out of time and just can’t get a bag together, don’t feel bad about snagging a gift card in the check out line. Teachers love them…really we do! Here’s to sleeping in, days by the pool, and no homework…(sigh). I can’t wait!
This is such a great idea that we created a printable gift tag for you!
