The children are heading back to school and there is no better time to let their teacher know how much you appreciate their time! Even after a nice summer break, teachers enjoy knowing that you think they are special. Every year, it’s nice to send in a little something just to say “thank you,” even at the start of the school year. I feel that teachers can be just as overwhelmed with their new students as the actual students; but a pat on the back can keep everything in check.
Once your yellow paint has dried, paint the entire tip and one side of the pencil with black chalkboard paint. Apply a second coat once the first layer has completely dried. Using a small tipped paint brush make small black triangles below the tip to give the appearance of being sharpened.
Your sweet nameplate is ready to deliver! You can add special touches to your final project by using stickers, painting on an apple or anything else that helps you to personalize your nameplate! Most of all, you will make someone’s day a little brighter; and that is a perfect lesson for your child!
