The School year is slowing down here. C-man’s last day is today and M goes until June 2nd. C-man’s school has 2 teachers, 2 music teachers, and 2 directors of the program. I try to find something they can use, but I don’t want it to cost me a arm and a leg.
Here is what they received this year
It’s a popcorn container with a bag of popcorn, box of cracker jacks, large chocolate bar, $5 Blockbuster giftcard, and a wooden initial I painted and glued a pretty ribbon to it. The teachers seem thrilled with the gift when we delivered them this morning. The big hit was the wooden letter I had painted. They loved how I had taken the time to make a generic gift more personal.
Here is a breakdown of the costs:
Popcorn containers- 1.00 each- I got these are Target, but I also saw them at Michaels
Wooden Letters- 1.00 each-at Michaels
Ribbon for letters- 1.99 for a spool
Popcorn- 8bags for 2.00
Cracker Jacks- 3 boxes at 98cents
Hershey Chocolate Bar- 1.25 each
Cellophane bags- 3.99 for 24ct. I will now have extras for future projects.
Blockbuster gift card- $5
As you can see, the gift cards were the big expense. Everything else was relatively cheap. I made a total of 6 today for C-man’s school and I have 1 to do for M’s teacher. I didn’t include paint in the price since I have paint in my craft closet. I used a clear sealer for the letters to make them shine.
