School will be out for my kids in less than two weeks. It is the first year that I am not teaching and experiencing that sheer giddiness of handing in my classroom keys for the summer. No, this year it's different. In less than two weeks, my boys will be together 24-7. With lots of fighting, and yelling, and eating, and a little bit of getting along thrown in there. Just a little though. My days of quiet cookie-making are going to come to a screeching halt.
School-themed cookies are great gifts for those individuals who have tolerated and taught the offspring as a sort of consolation prize. Of course these could be used for the start of school too!
I love re-purposing cookie cutters.
I'd bet you'll never guess where that pencil and book stack came from!
Chances are, your necktie cutters are out anyway for Father's Day. Just chop off the knot part and you have a chunky pencil.
Take that grad cap and lob off the tassel. Turn it upside down and it's great for a stacked set of books. The grad cap cutter is also great for cute Pool Frogs.
I don't know of any teacher who wouldn't like a beautiful set of cookies as a Thank You gift, boxed in a BRP gift box.
The ultimate teacher gift, though, is an extra month of summer. I wonder if BRP Box Shop has a box big enough for that. . .
To all the teachers and students out there-
Have a Fantastic and Safe Summer!
