As the school year comes to a close, one thing I always like to do is show my appreciation to my kids’ teachers. To thank them for helping them learn and grow through the year with a small gift or two. Since I have one in high school and one in pre-k, I made up great gifts for my youngest sons teacher and her aid. Go Teach sent me a few amazing products to make up teacher appreciation week gifts. So I decided to our local Panera Bread and grab a couple drink cups to put in the markers/pens/expos.
Paper Mate Inkjoy: These are by far my favorite pens right now just to write with around the house and my blogging, so I know for a fact that any teacher would just love them! I received a set of 8 vibrant colors that dries 3x faster with reduces smearing. The pens are fully wrapped with a comfort grip, which is great whether you write a little or a lot! These pens are available at select retailers, and in pack sizes from 1-14 pens. Expo Markers: These markers are really neat, I have never seen them before I got them for review! Nothing like your markers drying up or running out of ink, with these ink indicator markers, that will never happen again. There is a clear barrel at the end of the marker to show when you are running out of ink. Sharpie: I love sharpies, and what teacher wouldn’t? I mean they can be used literally for everything! The package I shared with our teacher is the 24 pack of ultra fine markers. Its a limited edition pack that includes 5 new neon colors.
I filled each of the cups with a couple markers/pens/expos from each pack and put the lid on, stuck in the straw just as I was making a drink. I has some extra space in the bottom of the cup to fill and threw in some candy like sweetarts, and tootsie rolls. They would also look great for holidays to fill with colored crinkle paper! When my son gave them their #teacherappriciationweek gifts they were so excited, he got big hugs and bigger smiles!!
