Teacher Gift

Today I have my Activity Days Girls activity. It is a church activity for girls between the ages of 8-11. I have about 10 girls and we decided to have an activity where we made a gift for the girls new teachers. I wanted to do something really cute but sometimes that doesn't work out so well for this age of girls. I saw this idea at Brown Paper Packages but needed to change it up a bit. I don't have a saw that can cut a large 4x4 post but I can cut a 2x4. So I cut a 2x4 into a 3.5' square and went from there.
We added a cute little note as well. It reads:
An APPLE a day will keep the insanity at bay.
So keep this APPLE near and you won't have any fear.

We attached it to a red piece of paper and punched a hole in the corner to tie a ribbon.

I painted the block barn red.

Applied white vinyl "A" and "a" to each side.

Tied a cute ribbon around the block and tied the note to the block.

So here it is. I think it turned out cute. Easy for the girls to make and a fun gift for teachers.
