Memorial Day has come and gone, which means we are officially into summer. I can hardly believe it! I distinctly remember slogging through January, dreaming of sweaty glasses of lemonade and prime real estate at the pool, while I was shoveling mounds and mounds of snow. June is all but here, peeking it’s head around the last vestiges of May. Here we are — summer, summer, summertime.
The beginning of summer means the end of school. This year was V’s first year of preschool and it was stellar year for her. She thoroughly enjoyed her two-day-two program. In addition to making friends, learning her numbers and color, and just being an all around superstar on the playground, V was a stand-out student with her teachers. I wanted to thank them for making V’s year such a success. I dug through my craft board on Pinterest and found this super cute and super easy teacher appreciation gift.
You’ll need a cute oven mitt, a spatula, and a bag of cookie mix for each of the intended recipients.
Tuck the cookie mix and the spatula into the oven mitt and set aside.
Print out the template found on eighteen25.com, attach it to some cardstock and punch a hole in the top. Wrap some nice grosgrain ribbon around the mitt and through the hole of the cardstock.
Tie it with a bow and you’re all done!
The original set of mitts I made were blue and red gingham mitts with black spatulas and chocolate chip cookie mix. I like affixing the note to some cardstock for a little extra punch, but it’s not required. Also, if cookies aren’t your jam, you could substitute it for any other type of packaged baked good. You can make this jazzy or as simple. Put your own signature on it and make it was awesome as you like. Whatever you choose to do, no doubt, it’ll be pretty sweet!
