Teacher Survival Kit
It is hard to believe, but school starts here in just over two weeks! I have been out and about shopping for back to school supplies, and clothing. While I was out and about I thought I would gather supplies to make the perfect back to school gift for my grandson’s teacher. I have put together a super cute, useful and fun Teacher Survival Kit to start off the 2015 school year. My grandson is only 6, so I made the Teacher Survival Kit for an elementary school teacher. The great thing about this project is you can personalize it for your child’s teacher. You can make the kit large or small and include whatever suits your fancy.Teacher Survival Kit



I used several items in mine since I am using a larger container. I didn’t spend a lot of money on the project because I bought most of the items on sale or at the Dollar Tree. I used pink tissue paper, pink card stock for a tag, and a ribbon scrap I had to add some extra pizzazz to the basket. I just used my printer to print the words on the cardstock and cut out a tag shape, used a hole punch for a hole and attached the tag to the basket with the ribbon. Here is a list of the supplies I used for the Teacher
