Last minute parent gifts

If you’re like me, I wait until the last possible moment to work on parent gifts with my students.  The last possible moment.  2:00 on the last day of school before our break and cross my fingers and hope that the paint and glue dries quickly kind of last minute. Not this year. 🙂


I am ahead of the game.  For once.  And I was able to wrap and send home these parent gifts on the same day as we created them. 


I purchased some wood picture frames online and we used our favorite Kwik Stix to decorate them for our families! They were dry in under 2 minutes and my students LOVED creating their own designs for their families.  Can you tell we were studying patterns at the same time?  🙂  My students each drew a picture to place inside the frames that can be taken out and replaced as each family desires. 

These frames were SUPER quick and easy and I know each family will appreciate the thought that their child put into creating their frame.  Each frame fits each child’s personality so well.  🙂 

If you’ve waited until the last minute, grab some Kwik Stix and let your students decorate–you can send your gifts home in vivid color the SAME day! 🙂
