Teachers Survival Kit

Yesterday I posted about our first day of school, and pictured is the gifts we made for their teachers.
Here’s where I got the idea/tutorial from eighteen25 – box of teacher goodies
I took the girls to Michael’s and let them pick out the papers and stickers for their boxes.
We got all the items we put inside from Target.
I pretty much followed all of the instructions from the tutorial above, except I used E6000 in 3 spots to hold the ribbon down, let it dry and then used Mod Podge to glue all the sheets of paper on.
I glued the top one on first, then the bottom one and then the middle strip, letting each one dry completely before applying the next.
I had the girls write a little note to their teachers, and then also added a teacher questionnaire printout for them to fill and send back to me so I know a little more about them, which also happens to be from eighteen 25… Teacher Questionnaire
Here’s what ours look like
We filled our with thumb tacks, paper clips, magnets, post its,
a USB drive, hand sanitizer and chocolates 🙂

First Day of School, 1st & 3rd Grade!

My girls started school on Monday… this week has been rough!
Because of Gwen’s treatments we have to do every morning and evening, we have to get up at 5am.
They have actually been doing very well with their new schedule… I haven’t haha
They love their teachers (so far) and are so happy to be back in school!
Here are some photos from their first day 🙂
We made first day of school gifts for their teachers.
I’ll post tomorrow about where I got the tutorial from, and how I did mine.
Breakfast!
(Please ignore the table cloth, they were doing art projects on it the day before 😉 )
With their cute signs I printed from HERE 🙂

In their new classrooms 🙂
 
Their new backpacks are from the Pottery Barn Mackenzie collection.
We had the owl ones last year and they held up so well!
The blue one is currently out of stock, but here’s the pink one.
 
And I bought their bows to match from these Etsy sellers 🙂
Bows For Baby 8 – She was super awesome and overnighted two bows to me when I realized (the Friday before school started) that the ones I had ordered wouldn’t get here in time.
Pixie Pretties – Very quick shipping, and her bows are adorable!
