As a tradition on the first day of school, I send each of my kids’ teachers a “survival kit”. That survival kit includes a woodbuned box with each teacher’s name and some office supplies. During the school year I send additional school supplies from time to time to fill the box again. I think it’s a nice gesture and teachers always appreciate it. After all, we should appreciate our teachers not only because it’s Teacher’s appreciation day, right?
I make the designs different every year and I guess they represent more my mood at the moment than the teacher’s personality- after all, before the school year starts I rarely know anything about them. 🙂
The second box is with a more decorative design with flowers. I have to admit working with my woodburner with adjustable temperature levels is soooo much better than the standard woodburner with only one temperature level. It’s considerably less time consuming – for example, it took my just about 2 hours to finish these two boxes, compared to the box-a-day option with the old woodburner.
