This week is teacher appreciation week! Although Moira is not in “preschool” yet, she has been attending daycare since she was 3 months old. At that age the caregivers are not necessarily called “teachers”, but I know that Moira is learning every time she is there…after all, our babies are little sponges! In that spirit, I have taken to acknowledging the hours my daughter spends in the care of someone other than myself or my husband and showing our appreciation for all that they do. (I know what it is like to spend hours with one two-year old…they have a room full of them!)
This year’s small token of appreciation…cute little post-it note holders.
I made 8…one for each teacher in the room.
It was quite simple, with only a couple of supplies needed, and I am sure I will use this again down the road someday.
My post-its were 3″x3″ and 100 sheets. I cut a piece of paper 3″ wide. Moving along the length of the paper I scored at 3″, 3 3/8″, 6 3/8″, 6 3/4″, and cut at just a teensy-weensy bit over 8 inches (sorry, I didn’t snap a photo of that part).
I glued the post-its to the back 3″x3″ square.
To make the “enclosure”, I put 3 dimensional stickers at where the top flap ended.
When I put my tag on top, it created a little notch-sort-of-thing to keep the holder closed.
Wrote a little note of thanks inside to finish it off.
Now, I am also in the custom of bringing some sort of “treat” to these fine ladies…I just haven’t decided what it will be yet!
