Christmas Gifts for Teachers


As a teacher (currently stay at home Mom) I am very excited to be on the other side, and to get to give my first teacher gifts as a parent.  I know how hard they all work, and how much they've done to help Ethan settle into his first term at nursery, so I'm really happy to be able to show my appreciation.  It's also a great way to teach Ethan about gratitude and giving a little something special to people who are important to us.  

We wanted to make something a bit personal, but as there are so many teachers at Ethan's nursery I knew that he would lose interest if he had to create something for each of them.  So we went for 'drink and biscuits' theme gifts, choosing these cute red and white mugs, then filling them with treats (a candy cane, a chocolate spoon, cookies and a Starbucks gift card for Ethan's main teacher).

Ethan loved making the chocolate spoons, melting milk and white chocolate, dipping the spoons in the chocolate and then decorating them with sprinkles, chocolate stars and mini marshmallows.  Of course his favourite part was snacking along the way!  We also made them some yummy Snickerdoodle cookies (recipe from without definite reason) and pin wheel cookies (recipe from Tasty Kitchen).
