Back to School Sharpie Teacher Gift
I love to give gifts, especially thoughtful and useful gifts! Teachers of any grade will love this one…because who doesn’t LOVE Sharpie markers?!
Although my kids are older and both will be in high school this year I still love sharing ideas for families with kids of all ages. SO this project is for all of those eager Moms out there who want to welcome their child’s teacher to a new school year but not spend tons of time and money doing it.
Of course, your child will have the Sharpiest Teacher in the school and this little gift will be the perfect way to say so!
This one is as easy as stopping by your local Staples, like I did to pick up some Sharpie markers! The Sharpie Fine, Ultra Fine and highlighters are also on sale this week, while supplies last.
Staples is a one stop shop for all of your Sharpie needs!
I picked up the memory photo display from the craft section at Walmart.
I chose to use our school colors, blue and gold, for this project. I had this yellow spray paint at home already. I took my little wooden box out into the back yard and sprayed it. It took a couple of coats. Then I rummaged through my scrapbook supplies for some matching papers.
Then for fun, I used the Sharpie Ultra Fine markers and wrote a note for the teacher…
“I have the Sharpiest Teacher at School”
The paper and note were then added where family photos usually go. I added the Sharpie Markers to a mason jar to sit inside of the box. This allows me to keep the Sharpie’s all together while being able to add other desk items like scissors and a ruler to the box. Just a neat way to keep it all looking organized.
For all of my friends out there whose kids have already started school I hope it’s been smooth sailing!
For the rest of us, let’s enjoy every moment before the school bell rings.
