This Year's Teacher Gifts

I will be honest. I completely forgot about teacher gifts until yesterday when I was dropping one of my daughter's off at school and saw a little boy with a gift for his teacher. Um, oops? I am new at this. So I did what any respectable mom would do...ran to the nearest store and brainstormed, remembering all that I have ever read about what teachers REALLY want for Christmas in Parents Magazine. Here's what I came up with:


Hand Sanitizer

A candy cane full of Hershey Kisses.

Then I put all of them in a cute bag with a little poem:

We really love our teachers,
We miss them when they’re sick,
So we thought you could use some things
To make the germs not stick!

First some sanitizer,
To make your hands all clean,
Because we know that sometimes kids
Leak stuff that is green.

Next up are some tissues,
Just in case you catch a cold,
They even have lotion on them!
They’re soft when out they’re pulled.

Finally, to show our love
We’re giving you some kisses,
But this kind won’t make you sick
The chocolate kind, this is!

Thank you for your work,
You make our school so fun!
We wish you Happy Holidays
And now our poem is done!

Feel free to use this idea and poem for your favorite teachers!
