As the final half term of the school year approaches I am getting my head around what we’ll need to be doing to make sure we’re ready to say ‘thank you’ and get some crafts ready for the little people to make in our week off.
These were our cards from last year, Pinterest inspired, really simple and I hope very effective.
We tend each year to make themed hampers for teachers, incorporating handmade and shop-bought trinkets. This year we are doing garden based hampers, and in my mind I am trying to recall whom we gave these cards to last year as they will make the perfect accompaniment!
I started by setting up the text on a word document and printing onto A4 card, with two per page.
For two of the three cards we added handprints.
With handprints in place we started adding fingerprints, later adding the grass and trunk. The flower card just required fingers.
The flower cards had the added benefit of glitter glue to create the stem and leaves, and a gem at the centre.
Lots of fun for the children, with the benefit of being able to talk to them about why teachers, learning support assistants, and all the people bringing their time to education are appreciated.
