Summer = sleeping in, relaxing and hanging out. Back to School = alarms clocks, homework and regular routines.
Making the switch from summer vacation to back to school definitely takes some adjustment for all parties involved – students, parents and teachers. Don’t forget about the teachers!
I started making my Back to School Teacher Survival Kit by filling it with caffeine and chocolates. Two must-haves for enduring long hours and stress of any kind.
But being the healthy living person I strive to be, I wanted to add some healthier options for the teachers that would still provide them with a good pick-me-up.
Here’s what my back to school gift basket contained:
- bottles of Coke
- bottles of Starbucks Coffee Frappuccino Coffee Drink
- Regular M&M’s Candy
- M&M’s Peanut Candy
- cans of VitaminWater energy drinks
- Sweet ‘n Salty Trail Mix
For the final touch, I taped to the gift basket a cute Back to School Teacher Survival Kit sign that I printed from another blogger’s website called Funky Polkadot Giraffe. I couldn’t have designed a cuter sign myself!
Your child will feel proud to give this back to school gift to his or her teacher on the first day of school!
