This school year I had INCREDIBLE volunteers and we really wanted them to know how much we appreciated their TIME…
I found these adorable tiny vases and bought air plants that perfectly fit inside.
The nursery that I bought the air plants from gave me a nutrient that you mix with water in a spray bottle to get the most life from your air plants. (I think ordinary water will do also). I included the nutrient inside a small kraft bag and printed these Air Plant Instructions on scrapbook paper.
My favorite part of the gift though, was from the kids! I had each student water color a piece of white card stock paper. I mixed my bright paint colors with white to soften them up.
The next day I cut their painted paper into 4 in. by 4 in. squares. This way we could make a card for each of our 4 volunteers.
Using a black felt tip pen, the kids drew pictures on their cards and I wrote their dictated thank you notes on the back.
I used a cute clothespin to clip all of their notes behind the top card. Download this free printable: Children Spell Love…Time.
The kids loved how they turned out and I think our volunteers will too!
What gifts have you given your classroom volunteers? I’d love to hear about it in the comments section!
