My son's teacher retired this year and we wanted to give her something special. Here is what we came up with. The cart was A Child's Year of course! The frame was a cheapy $5 frame from Wal-Mart and the ribbon I bought at a garage sale for $2.
Here is the gift we gave the Student Aid teacher too. The kids did a lot during the year with nature and animals. Every week they had a different animal hosted in their classroom and at the beginning of the year the teacher took them outside into the fields, found a monarch caterpillar, brought it inside and watched it transform into a beautiful butterfly! The little boy silhouette was just perfect for this memory.
