Parent Volunteer Gift

Yes, I am still alive....barely.

These past few weeks have been a blur of craziness and I have been a terrible blogger in the process. I have felt like the energizer bunny on speed and am definitely ready for a break. I promise to update you on all the excitement once I have a few seconds to breathe.

Until then, I do have to share the AMAZING parent volunteer gift my kids made.

We don't have a ton of parent volunteers at our school, however the ones we have are wonderful!!! I have a mom who comes in every Friday and has been such a huge help and become a great friend! I always breathe a huge sigh of relief when she walks through the door. And of course, my kids love her.

I wanted to give her something simple, yet functional and sentimental for an end of the year "thank you" gift. So, naturally, I turned to Pinterest. And I found a ton of really great ideas.

But....I wasn't really crazy about any of them. Nothing I found felt quite right. Until I found the cutest pitcher at Target. And it hit me: thanks for PITCHING in this year!

My kids all signed their name, we added some lemonade (her favorite summertime drink), and voila - super cute parent volunteer gift. Complete with a "pun-derful" saying!

She loved it by the way!

    1. Thanks Heather! And thanks for the follow! :)

  2. I LOVE this idea! What did you write on this with? Sharpie? Or is it paint? Did you seal it in any way so that the names will last?
