Hi, I am so excited to be guest posting for Cindy at Skip To My Lou! How lucky am I that I even just got to meet Cindy, at Creative Estates!
For Skip To My Lou readers that do not know me my name is Rebecca and I blog at Roots And Wings Co . I thoroughly believe that as parents our job is to give our children Roots and Wings! I grew up with traditions, craftiness and stories. I hope that my little corner on the web will help you to establish roots for your family to grow from, and wings so that you can soar with ideas you get from me.
Cindy asked for a post about a Teacher Appreciation gift. I truly believe it takes a village to raise our children and so I am very grateful to the teachers in my children’s lives! I really try to think of giving something that teachers will actually want and not just be appreciative of the thought! So, I came up with the idea for a Money Tree!
Collect money from
the class to use to decorate this cute tree with. Send a request home in students’ backpacks. At my school you can put a sealed envelope with the parent’s name (or even “Jeremy’s Parent” if you don’t know names) on the envelope, so that the teacher does not know what you are doing. Depending on how much money you get will tell you how to break up your denominations. You want the tree to be full so even use one dollar bills if you need to. The above tree has 1’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 20’s.
You could do this quicker and easier by just rolling up money and tying it to the tree. However, I really wanted my money tree to be super cute! There are a million different origami flowers that you can use for this. I went with the one that I thought was the prettiest flower! This is a little time consuming but is so worth it! I found the tutorial for the flower at Origami Money Flower Blog! This blog has a video tutorial as well as pdf instructions!
