Well, the kids are definitely back in school.  We are starting to get into a bit of a routine.  I like to start the year off with a gift for my kids’ teachers.  It’s simple math: Happy Teacher = Happy Students!  Last year I made fresh Apple Scones for the teachers, and the year before I made reuseable coffee cup sleeves.  This year I thought a flower bouquet would brighten their day.  These we easy to make and really didn’t cost too much.

Supplies:
Pencils (about 32)
Crayons (about 25)
An empty baby food jar
An empty Starbucks Frappacino Bottle
2 rubber bands
Ribbon
Flowers

For the pencil vase, I wrapped an empty frappacino bottle with an elastic band and the inserted the pencils all the same direction.  And for the crayon vase I just used an empty baby food jar.  Then I simply tied a cute ribbon around the rubber band to hide it and filled them with flowers.


Are your back into a routine with the start of school?  Is that routine welcomed or are you longing for more summer?
