End-of-the-Year Gifts! {For Students & Parents}

Since I only have 5 days of school left, I finished up my end-of-the-year gifts for my students and parent volunteers this weekend. It took a whole lot of ribbon and cellophane, but I am finally finished! If you follow me on Facebook {here} or Instagram {here} then you got a little sneak peek yesterday!

On the last day of school, my students will get this adorable treat bag! I got the idea and fish bowl printable from my good friend, Anna Brantley @ Crazy for First Grade. My students will love them!

This year, I've had some AMAZING parent volunteers! To show them how much I appreciate them, I've made a little nail polish gift baggie. It includes pink nail polish, clear nail polish, and a large nail file.

How do you show your students and parent volunteers that you appreciate them?

  15. What is the cursive font you use on the "polished" note?? It's so cute1

  16. Thanks for this fabulous freebie. I used it for my end of term gift, for the other teachers, in my room. I purchased manicure certificates and finished them off with your gorgeous tags. Thanks so much. Next term I have mani and pedi vouchers and I think I'll make a tag saying 'Thanks for helping me to always put my best foot forward'. I hope that they love it :D


thanks for the love ♥
