I love making gifts for the mini Steam’s teachers. I mean after all these folks are not only taking care of my kids, but they are TEACHING them! So what could be more important than letting those teachers know how important that is?
This year was a real challenge for me. The present needed to be something special. Something I hadn’t given the teachers before. And I had to be able to make it en mass. After all between the two kids there were 14 teachers and administrators. Yikes!
I decided to start with my favorite gift to make ORNAMENTS! And my very favorite ornament to make is the glittery Santa ornament. If you want to make your own, I have a tutorial already for you.
I really wanted to give the teachers something more than the ornament. But what? Off to Pinterest I went looking for Santa themed gift ideas.
And I found the perfect idea! Hand sanitizer. Seriously, every teacher has to deal with germy kids, especially now during the winter here in the frozen North.
So how about some decorating some hand sanitizer like Santa and turning it into SANTA – TIZER!!!! Oh yea! How cute are these?
I found some shimmery red scrap booking paper. I attached those with some Terrifically Tacky Tape. The white is vinyl that I cut with scallop scissors. The black is also vinyl. And the belt is silver glitter scrap booking paper.
Last step was to write a letter. I thought this one was just about perfect!
Here’s the whole gift ensemble. I sure hope the teachers enjoy it.
