New Teacher Gift...

Rainee and I love giving gifts to Rainee's new teacher's each year... and this year along with the Cup-Filled-With-Pencils (from last year - and below) we gave her a set of From-The-Desk-Of cards from my SimplyEverydayMe Etsy Shop... one of each design (apples, bees, pencils, crayons, owl & little blue bird)... Plus we also gave her former teachers at set... all the same designs... as a little thank you for helping her get to Third Grade. They loved them!!!

Now as for last years teacher gift  - - - -  I've had sooooo many emails... and comments about this Cup-Filled-With-Pencils for Rainee's teacher gift from last year... I thought I'd post this project again and answer a few questions....

What Size Cup: This is a 24oz. cup
Where Did I Get Them: Walmart. AND I just went online and found them for a set of 4/$18.00 .
How Many Pencils: I put 30 in it. One for each kid in the class.

Suggestion: Sharpen sharpen sharpen those pencils before giving them to the teacher... I didn't the first time... but this year I did... they appreciate it a whole bunch!!!

Hope you day is filled to the brim with wonderful things too...

Any other ideas for filling them up? I was thinking of doing a couple of the cups for my son's T.A.'s

I plan to do this for a middle- and high-school teacher or two this year - such an adorable and useful idea that is also cost-effective! Thank you!
