As you may be aware if you read my Last Day post, my Little Ones (or not so!) finally had their last day of school a couple of weeks ago. I've only just got around to writing about Little A's nursery graduation and the teacher gifts we gave away in the last week. I don't remember giving teacher gifts to Midges Year 1 teacher's but I do remember her reception teachers having gifts because I remember thinking how much they had helped her and I wanted to say thank you. I made them little buckets full of stationery and chocolates which they all loved. Midge has now left year 2 and she is old enough to say whether she wants to go and share a gift with her teachers or not (some would find it embarrassing after all) of course, as I assumed, she wanted to give her teachers something to remember her by!
How was last day for your children? Did you do teacher gifts this year too?
I had several very lovely little plushies made for me in gift swaps from a long time ago that I hadn't looked at in some some time so I thought, as they are so lovely I asked Midge if she would like to give them to her teachers. She said yes and added that she would like to put some candles with them. We bought two smaller Yankee candles and one large strawberry flavoured candle from The Card Factory for her main teacher. Midge got some hugs from her teachers so I think they went down well.
Little A had his nursery graduation a few days before the last day of term. The photos of the children on the large screen were quite a tear jerker but the actual singing and awarding ceremony were just filled with lots of smiles and clapping.

Finally Little A's lovely teacher gifts which I purchased from Danielle Louise Designs through facebook. The notebooks were the perfect gift for Little A's teachers who have done so, so much for him and us since he started.
|I ordered 5 of these notebooks in total and loved them all.|
