Felt Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Our local schools break up for their half-term holiday on Friday, with all next week off. It's been a long eight weeks since the start of term back in September and both students and teachers are ready for a well earned rest.
Alice has now joined her brother at secondary school and it was a very successful transition, due to the efforts of her lovely form tutor and subject teachers. George went into Year Ten and has stayed with the same great tutor for the fourth year running.
As a little thank you for all their help and care in making the first half term so painless, the children and I stitched up some cute cupcake toppers for both tutors.
George also helped out with the design of the packaging and on the back is one of my favourite seasonal quotes;
'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower' Albert Camus
The yummy frosted cupcakes were purchased in Sainsburys and the ones pictured only just made it through the photo shoot before they were polished off by some very willing 'helpers'. I'm now putting off buying replacements until the last minute, hopefully avoiding further temptation!
We're off to Barcelona for a few days next week and when we return it will be almost time for our Halloween party, so it should be a lovely break for the children. If you're on holiday too, enjoy!
