    How about buy some blue ornaments, have your daughters make 3 fingertips the shape of a snowman and write in white paint pen "Happy Holidays 2009"?

    We're doing picture ornaments for my son's Teacher & Teacher Assistant.  If we have enough time & if my son wants to we'll also make one for his Director, she had much impact on my son & has been a lot of help =o)

    I am making cookies, I got nice cookie gift boxes at Michael's with a 40% off coupon, and I might add a hot chocolate set with it, not sure yet.... I might also make some banana breads for my hubby's co-workers.

    We are giving travel sized hand cream and purse sized purell ($.99 each) in a handmade felt gift bag. (I work in a school system and most teachers say that hand cream/lotion is one of the gifts they find most useful.)

    Here's our go to gift for teaches and support staff.  We buy a plant (usually african violet, but this year a poinsettia) and make a little flag out of a bamboo skewer and cardstock.  On the flag I put a picture of my son and the saying, "Thanks for helping me grow.  Love, Max"

    I made these last yr for teacher appreciation week and the teacher LOVED it..she has them in her classroom.

    For xmas my daughter is in Pre-K and has 3 teachers, I found these very cute spa sets at walmart for $3 so I got 3 of them and I am gonna bake some cookies and make some chocolates for them, I got the tins at dollar tree to put them in. For my son's teacher , she loves food so I'm making her a variety box, it will have cookies, chocolates and coconut balls in there.
