Back to School - A is for Apple Card for the Teacher


It's almost time to go back to school!  As someone who spent my whole life in school, either as a student or a teacher, these past couple of years as a stay at home Mum have left me feeling like I was missing something at the beginning of September each year.  Well, now that Ethan's in nursery, (even though he goes throughout the summer), I feel like I can properly embrace 'back to school' season again! 

Something that I've been seeing crop up on Pinterest and Facebook is the idea of teacher gifts at the start of a school year, and I think that it can be a really fun way of getting your little ones excited for school and showing your appreciation for the teacher whom you know has been preparing all summer for the children to have an easy transition from summer to school days. So we've made a little card for Ethan's teacher, just to show her how much we appreciate all that she does for us.  I love the apple theme for 'back to school' so we did some colourful apple printing along with the letter 'a' as we're starting to learn about initial sounds in words.

Ethan loved that we were using a real apple to paint on the card!  We simply cut an apple in half, put out some red and green paint and stamped away on the card.  As it was going so well, I also got out the big roll of paper and we made some wrapping paper too, this we can use to wrap up a special little gift to go along with the card.

I had a look on Pinterest for some ideas of start of the year teacher gifts, and found loads that I really love, basically really simple things with a cute little note to go along with them.  So we'll decide between giving cookies or cupcakes (that we decorate to look like school supplies), antibacterial hand gel, hand cream, chocolate or a coffee voucher in a reusable cup.

  1. Good day friends. The truth is that GREAT MOTHER IS REAL AND UNIQUELY POWERFUL. Contact the Great Mother today and she will help you. when my husband left me for another woman, i thought that was the end but i contacted many spell casters but there was no positive responses and everything seemed not to be working and i was losing my mind until my cousin told me about the GREAT MOTHER who also helped her to bring back her man and also helped her to cure her herpes disease. I gave it a try and i contacted the Great Mother on her Website and i saw various testimonies about her on her good works how she has helped a lot of people. I explained my problems to her. she laughed and told me that, everything will be okay again and that she will help me bring back my man in 3 days time. I actually thought that it was a joke but since i had no other options, i gave it a try and i did what she instructed me do and to my greatest surprise, my man came back to me begging in 3 days time just as she told me.
