Sooooooooo, tomorrow is the last day of school. Do you have the gifts for the teachers ready? No? So you did not listen to me a few weeks back when I warned you to get going on the holiday projects. I told you if you did not get with the program it was going to come back to bite you. And here it is the night before the last day of school before Christmas break with no teacher gifts.
Oh… so sorry folks, I was talking to myself again. (I do that a lot.)
BUT we still have time to pull this off!
Run, don’t walk, to the hobby store and grab some cookie cutters, cardboard boxes, and ribbon.
Then run, don’t walk, (it’s probably faster to drive) to the grocery and get sugar, flour, eggs, and vanilla. (Or buy the premade sugar cookie dough. I won’t tell if you do.)
Roll that dough out, and bake the cookies inside the cutters.
After fully cooled, throw those puppies in a gift box, ribbon it up and voila!
Fastest homemade teacher gift everrrr!
You saved the day! Your kids will not look like losers showing up at school with nothing for the teachers. Now they won’t fail next semester. And you are supermom in the eyes of your offspring.
You can thank me later.
Get in the car and go. Now!
