It's officially the last day of the 2012-13 school year for both kiddos today. Or as I like to refer it: the eve of me realizing that the teachers who spend all day with these creatures are really not getting paid enough. Yes, I am looking forward to a few months with no early morning alarm clocks, no crazy hectic schedules and (holy hallalujah!) no math homework....but there's also a reason that my wine consumption increases during June, July and August. Make that two reasons.
So while we work on a summer bucket list to keep the I'm boreds from driving this mama crazy, I wanted to wrap up the school year with a gift of appreciation for our amazing teachers. They do a thankless job with patience, enthusiasm, dedication and passion. Both kids have mentioned how much they'll miss their teachers when school ends, so today they'll present them with a small token of our gratitude:
I have to give full credit to Pinterest for the idea to combine a bag of marshmellows, a giant Hershey bar, and a sleeve of grahams with this clever tagline. I also attached a Target gift card to each bundle so the teachers can stock up on any other campfire needs (or, i dunno, maybe some WINE??)
The tag + s'more title were die cut on my Silhouette and then the kids helped me stamp the rest of the words (we used these Hero Arts Typewriter Letters). I thought I'd share my die cut files in case anyone needs a quick and easy teacher gift:

And now I'm off to enjoy my last day of peace and quiet...and make sure the wine cooler is fully stocked.
