The end of the school year is coming. For teachers it means it is time to make their classrooms sparkly clean. A school year’s worth of gunk builds up over all the months and can take time and energy to clean. Luckily we live in a time of Magic Erasers. These handy little sponges can be used to clean just about anything and will make glue drops, glue stick strips, pencil marks, and crayons drawings disappear in the classroom. It may seem like a silly teacher surprise, but trust me, it is very appreciated.
It is a great idea to buy melamine sponges in bulk since they are so inexpensive that way! I love getting the 100 piece pack from Amazon. It has lasted our family for YEARS so far. Last night I made a cute printable to give to my girls teachers. Bundle several sponges together and tie with some decorative twine. Tuck the printable behind the sponge and have your kiddos deliver these to their teachers. They will be very thankful for your support.
If you are looking for a great end of the year gift, consider giving the gift of money.
Here is a great tutorial to make a book of dollar bills.
Another fun way to give money is to turn them into dollar bill flowers. I love giving teachers money as a gift, but it can feel a little bit awkward – especially if you are room mom and are giving the teacher a pooled amount of money. But doing something fun and interesting with it makes it a great gift that teachers can use anywhere!
