Reversible Children's Apron

 We made some chocolate chip cookies last week and my daughter wore the apron I made her.  We had a fun photo shoot in the apron.
 My daughter just got bangs!

 My favorite photo.  So happy, holding a bunch of dandelions!
 The apron is reversible and I adore both sides.
 This side is from a sheet I tie dyed.
 Chevron heart pocket.
 Green ruffle trim.
Really love this fun apron.

Wooden Frame Gifts

 I love these little wooden frames from Michaels.  They're only $1.  My kids made these for their grandmothers for Mother's Day.  I think they are so sweet.  The kids really enjoyed making them.  They used markers then we add some glue and GLITTER!  They could be nice gifts for teachers too.
 For their grandmother that loves monkeys.
 Baseball theme!

Teacher Thank You Note

We gave this adorable card to my son's teacher with his gift.  I found it on Lil Blue Boo.  You can get the free printable there.  My son filled it out below.
 I think it's really sweet.  School's out here and we're already enjoying every day of summer fun!

Crayola Face Paint

 I painted my daughter's face last week and it was so EASY!  She wanted to be a kitten.
It was with this fun product by Crayola.  We found it on clearance for $2.98 (orig $9.99) and they had a ton of different ones.  I am so bummed I didn't buy more.  All you do is peel the design and stick it on the face.  NO MESS!  It was really easy to do and my daughter loved it.  It came off pretty easily when she touched it, but I would rather that than messy and hard to get off later.  Would be a great and unique gift for a birthday boy or girl.

Teacher Appreciation Gift: Countdown Frame

I made this countdown for my son's teacher after I found it on eighteen25.  I love it!  You just use a dry erase marker and can count the days until holiday breaks, summer break or a field trip.  She has a printable in blue or in orange.
I found a great frame from Michael's for only $3 this week!!!!!

Teacher Appreciation Gift Lemonade Cup

 Here are gifts for my son's kindergarten teacher and aide.  I found this wonderful idea at Lisa Storms.  Who can't use a great reusable cup for the summer?
 The tags are SO cute and can be found here to print.  They say "thank you for being a great "ade" for our class" and "thank you for quenching my thirst for knowledge".  I got the cups at JoAnn's (after a long search for decent ones) and they are filled with Crystal Lite Strawberry Lemonade and Strawberry Kiwi drink mixes.
My son drew a picture for each teacher that said "I had fun at school."  We wrapped it up and stuck it in the middle of the cups.  You can also stick a Starbucks drink card also!  It's a cute and useful gift for teachers that I think they will love.
