If you are a mom of children under 12 and you don’t get a magazine subscription to Family Fun you are crazy!  This magazine put out by Disney is chock full of ideas for day trips, family vacations, crafts, cooking with kids, tip and tricks.  It is by far my favorite kid’s magazine.  In the May 2010 issue they had an adorable idea for a teacher’s gift.  It was finger stamped stationary.

Click on the picture for a full tutorial.  Isaac loves playing with stamp pads so I thought this would be the perfect craft for him to make for his preschool teachers.  DSC05710In addition to the ones in the magazine we made these designs as well…

DSC05666 DSC05667 DSC05713 We stamped the words “thank you†on them and now they will have a set of cards with Isaac’s cute little fingerprints on them (I am assuming they think they are cute too ;-).

I also made some of these gorgeous flowers I featured in my last LOVES Links post.  Find the tutorial here.DSC05605There is a secret message on the back. Cuuuute!DSC05708

I tied them with some ribbon and attached the flower in the middle.


Have you started making your children’s teacher gifts yet?  I would love to have some more ideas to pack away for a later day.  What is your favorite teacher gift?  Teachers out there, what do you love to receive as a gift from a child?
