30 “Thanks for Helping Me Grow” Teacher Appreciation Gifts

I gifted bamboo plants to Charlie and Olive’s teachers last year because I loved the sentiment behind the “thanks for helping me grow” tag, as well as giving them something that lasts.

Before we had kids I never had any huge feelings toward the activity, but now that Drake and Juliet are here it […]


Easter Activity: Painting Craft Eggs
