Teacher Appreciation PhotoStory 2011

I do a PhotoStory DVD every year for our teachers.  Below is the one we made for my preschool child's teachers this year.  I usually insert a lot about the teacher and some quotes but I felt this was more appropriate for a preschooler.   This is a fabulous sentimental project that has little cost with a HUGE impact (in other words it makes them cry, it means a lot and you still have money left over to buy them a Starbucks gift card;).  You can click here to read more about PhotoStory and how to download it.
NOTE: You could instead have the children say wonderful things or their favorite memories or activities with family members and it makes a FABULOUS Mother's Day, Father's Day or more importantly Grandparent's gift.  They LOVE it:)

Teacher Appreciation Week 2011

I'll be chronicling what I'm giving my teachers all week here.  SO check back and see as the week goes!

Day One - Flowers (her favorite color and flower;)
Day Two - I brought her lunch from Zaxby's (one of her favorite places to eat).  Teachers LOVE when you bring them lunch - it's a treat they rarely get!!

Day Three - With a little help, I took her favorite Starbucks drink, this super cute reusable tote from the Target Dollar section and her favorite candy.

Day Four - I took her a cookie cake (because it's her favorite) to share with her friends.

Day Five - I took her a PhotoStory DVD and a gift card tree I make with blooming branches stuck in a container I filled with foam.  She LOVED it!!
