Hi everyone! My name is Caitlin O'Bannon and I blog over at The Kinder Garden. I am so excited to be guest posting here and I am beyond honored that my WONDERFUL friend, Cassandra, chose me to be featured as one of her 30 Amazing Teachers this week! She is a person who has been such an encourager, supporter, and great friend in my life... so for her to include me in this means a lot to me!
Since this whole series she is doing is about inspiring and encouraging educators, I thought I'd share an idea for how you can spread a little happiness and thoughtfulness to people on your school campus this October with a simple little holiday gift just to show them how much they are appreciated!
I have always loved doing nice things for people in my life to show them I appreciate them, especially my grade level teammates at school. They always do so much to help and support me that it's the least I can do to say thank you! It's always so fun to do something like this during holidays, especially, because you can put together cute, inexpensive little gifts with a theme! So when I saw these adorable Halloween-themed soaps at Bath and Body Works, I knew I wanted to do something fun with them.
This little spooky soap gift package could not be any easier to throw together! Here's what I used to create the finished product:
I found these adorable Halloween popcorn containers in the Target dollar section! They are the perfect size to hold one of the soap dispensers.
I used these cute (free!) tags from Eighteen25, printed them out, and attached them to the soap dispensers with a piece of jute rope.
Then I wrapped a piece of tissue paper around the soap dispenser and stuck it inside the popcorn container so that it fluffed out at the top, like this!
And voila! You have a simple, thoughtful, inexpensive gift to shower your teammates and coworkers with!
I can't wait to give these to my first grade teammates this week!
