I thought a planter would be a fun gift for the end of the school year and something Parker could help with. We put together a planter for each one his teachers. Parker picked out the planter colors for each of his teachers and helped pick out the flowers. Then we painted rocks, with acrylic paint, to add to each of the planters. Parker loves to paint, so this was the perfect project for him. I brought the rocks home from the lake a year or two ago and they had been sitting in my garage since then, just waiting for a project. I have a lot of other stuff (pine cones, jars, wood scraps...) in my garage just waiting for me to do something with them too. Then, I added the teachers names, "You Rock!," and "Thank you for helping me grow" to each of the rocks, with permanent marker.
We also gave Parker's main teacher a nice card and Starbucks gift card, because we know she loves coffee!
