ideas from the internet
If you can get a good bargain on some mugs this is a GREAT teacher gift: stuff an envelope of hot chocolate inside a mug. Tied w/gold curly ribbon a chocolate spoon to each mug. Maybe you can attach a poem also ~ sprayed it with gold glitter.
Last year we gave stamped gift bags with 4 packets of hot cocoa mix and four chocolate dipped (plastic) spoons with crushed candy cane sprinkled on (before they set up). On the outside we tied this note and a cute snowman graphic.
Poem to a teacher:
Did you ever compare your Primary service to silverware?
All silverware is made to serve, but the different pieces serve in different ways.
Forks stab: "This is mine," they say. Bits of meat, carrots, and pickles.
Knives cut: "Too big," says the knife. Slice, cut, chop, dice.
However, spoons serve: cereal, soup, peas... all the impossible foods can be handled comfortably from the smooth bowl of the spoon.
Spoons say: "Here, let me help you. We can manage together."
Thank you for being on of the "spoons" in our Primary organization!
