Fa-BOO-lous Teacher Gift for Halloween
I was a teacher for a number of years before having my children… my five children. Because of my background, I always want the teacher to know how appreciated she is. I always appreciated it when parents recognized me (even with small gestures) and i want to do the same for my kids’ teachers. Because of my five children, I can’t always be present or who my gratitude in person. There are many ways I have showed it otherwise. I have bought nice quality candy bars during checkout of the grocery store, I have picked up small $5 Starbucks Gift Cards (take a look at our awesome printable there) and I have had the kids write notes of thanks on various occasions.
I wanted to give you all something creative and crafty. We made ghost spoons to gift to a Fa-BOO-lous teacher. Download these Printable Halloween gift tag, and pair with these white chocolate ghost spoons.
So there are a number of supplies you will need. We have our recipes down below listing out all the ingredients, but a few things you might ant to pre-order.
