This day is always a toughie to come up with something original and on the cheap. The kids are supposed to write a little note to their teachers telling them how great they are. Last year we did backwards notes that had to be read in a mirror. The year before that we did microscopic notes that had to be read with a magnifying glass. This year we spent a boat load of cash to buy three brand spanking new pencils. I know. I know – financially irresponsible.
The kids typed up their notes on the computer and I printed them out on legal sized paper strips and taped them together to make one long, skinny six foot note. Then we rolled the note around the pencil, added a little ribbon pull with some double sided tape and a mention to “please pull”.
I hope the teachers have fun unrolling the sincere sentiments of my two kids. This was a fun, easy one to do and cost us sixty cents for all three teachers.
