Teacher gifts


He was suppose to put hand prints on the 1st pot...but he had to go to bed for miss behaving (poor guy)

With the end of the year approaching I was looking for gift idea's for Austin's teachers. My criteria was:

something Austin could do
inexpensive
usable

Through one of my blog parties I saw this at craft-o-maniac. I liked the saying, but I wanted to change it and make it my own. He has 1 teacher and 2 aids, plus 1 for our friend that helped us get him into the school.

So this is my version of her craft.


potting soil, pots, gloves, basil




looks like he is eating the dirt


Having fun playing in the dirt
