Thank you for helping me Grow

Well this week sees the end of the school year here in the UK. Now faced with not only gifts for teachers we have teaching assistants – making end of year an expensive business. See off I went to Pinterest in order to find some ideas that would make it cheaper and more personal. You can visit my Teacher Gifts Board Here.

I cheated and bought some plants – but you could, ideally, grow your own.

I then cut out 2 strips of yellow paper more than long enough to go around the pots.

Then with a black felt tip pen I got my son to mark the paper like a tape measure

Then we secured the tape measure to the pot with sticky tape

He then cut out a left shape out of some tissue paper and wrote the message – thanks for helping me grow on it, which we secured onto the card that tells you what the plant is.

And there you have it. So quick and simple but, I think, a bit more personal and special that just another plant.
