I like to get back in the swing of things by starting off organized and with everything we need right at our fingertips.I emphasize starting that way….Allison Mack of Austin Moms Blog visited us in the studio with just what to do for teachers and students. She showed us how to assemble a simple homework station complete with all of the items your little ones might need to get down to business. She also shared some great ideas for teacher gifts. One of which is the Teacher Emergency Kit filled with things like filled with little things like gum, protein bar, travel size hairspray, toothbrush, nail file, etc. It’s a fun idea that can be made cost-effective with a trip to the dollar bin. Another fun idea for later in the year is to go in with other parents to make a gift card flower. With a few items from the craft store and some inexpensive gift cards, you can create a fun little gift that would mean a lot to your child’s teacher.
