It is that time of year, *Teacher Appreciation Week*--time to show your teachers how much you appreciate them. I know managing my two boys can be rough at times, I can't imagine managing 25 kids and getting them to learn! Don't let this week pass by without letting them know you appreciate them. The class moms have really taken charge this year in both my sons' classes, but I still wanted to give a little something extra from our family to let them know we are thankful for all they do. Usually I convey our message via song lyrics (examples here and here), but even after reviewing a ton of Beatle's songs I couldn't come up with anything new. So I reused the lyrics from Wild Thing, but with a different spin: a Wild Thing theme. After looking online at some Wild Thing parties for ideas, I was inspired by Caroline Armelle's invitations for her son's third birthday--loved the font she used (Kohicle 25). I created a simple wrappers to decorate individually packaged Chocolate Chip Cookies. The top cookie had a Wild Thing image with the message, 'Wild Thing, You Make My Heart Sing.' The the other cookies had messages from the boys.
Finally, the cookies were stacked on top of a gift card and tied with baker's twine to create a sweet Teacher Appreciation gift. For details on how to attach the bands check out here. Download the Wild Thing Cookie Wrappers here: Wild_Thing_Cookie_Wrap.
