The end of the year is approaching, and teachers, teaching assistants and educational staff will be able to enjoy a well-deserved summer holiday for the next few weeks! For something a little different to the usual end of terms gifts of chocolates or stationery, why not make something a little more personal? Bring a little bit of nature into their classrooms for a unique gift any special teacher is sure to love!
Succulent plant in a plain pot
Felt tip pens or paint to decorate
String, thread or ribbon
Paint the pot the colour of your choice then decorate it however you like! You could use felt pens, paint, glitter or stickers to create a design that your teacher will love.
We have painted ours blue and added a smiley face!
Cut a 30cm string or thread and place 6 strips paper around 2cm wide next to each other under the thread.
Apply glue to the bottom of each strip of paper, then fold the strips to form flags. Cut out the bottom of the flags in the shape of a pennant, as in the photo.
With coloured markers, write the letters “THANKS” on each flag.
Tie the threads onto pencils to create the banner.
Place the succulent or small plant in the decorated pot, then plant the pencils on each side to make a banner.
And there it is! Your thank you gift is ready to gift to your favourite teacher to decorate their classroom, office or home!
