Last Minute Teacher Gift: Straw Cup 3 Ways


Last Minute Teacher Gift Idea- Straw Cups 3 Ways

Spencer had some very specific, yet maddeningly vague, ideas about a teacher gift this year. Such is life with an almost done with being a kindergartener. Including Starbursts (his teacher’s favorite candy) was priority number one, after that he thought maybe a cup and a gift card. He picked out the $100 amazon gift card. I love his teacher, but that got vetoed. I normally saw her with a Starbucks iced tea in the mornings, so we went with a Starbucks gift card in a slightly more reasonable amount.

I also insisted that Spencer make cards and I am so glad I did. They are amazing and very him. I only wished I had taped his narration.
“A gold star for the pool party for you.”
“A rocket of acknowledgement for you.”
“Spencer A+++++,s you”
“Bug stickers for Ms M because monsters are scary, well maybe SOME monsters.”

It was actually Spencer’s idea to line a cup with the card. I would have sized the paper to fit if I had known in advance, but this way it is a card and decoration all in one.

He had tons of fun putting all the candy in the cup. He was also pleased that a full sized bag of Starburst filled the cup with some leftover for him to eat. Priorities!

One more idea is a fun in the sun filled cup. This one has some sunblock, face wipes and a lip balm.
