Every year (can I say that when I've only done it this year and last?), I like to give my son's teacher a ornament with all the kids pictures in it. His preschool (the oldest boy) always wants the class mom to give the teacher a scrapbook of the year at the end of school. (The school also gives us parents one but that's different). It seems a bit odd to me that teachers have to have scrapbooks of other people's kids for years on end ... like my kinder teacher has taught for 20 years. Does she really want 20 scrapbooks in her house? I don't think so. So, ornaments. They are small and can be taken out and looked at once a year. That's just enough.
Well, the queen herself, Ms. Julie Ebersole, has this FABULOUS itty, bitty book that is SO easy to make and serves this very purpose for me.
The only difference this year is that my son's kinder class has 21 kids, so I had to put more "pages" in it. It's a bit bulky and I had to reinforce the stapled spine.
Anyway, she loved it. I hope that in years to come, she remembers our sweet class! I blurred out the kids pictures because you know how I am about these things but I thought you might want to see the inside just to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
The little window on the front is a glitter window so that the penguin sparkles!
Thank you, Julie!
