This year I opted to make homemade teacher gifts after finding a recipe for homemade vanilla brown sugar body scrub, which contained 4 simple ingredients.
So after school last week I solicited the help of the kids to make our sugary concoction.
Vanilla Brown Sugar Body Scrub (www.bystephanielynn.com):
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup sunflower oil (this oil doesn't have a strong scent like olive oil)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
I doubled-and-a-halved this recipe since I had to fill 5 small jars (which I found at the dollar store).
Not only did it smell delicious, it was also quite edible! I had to keep telling the kids to stop eating their teacher's body scrub!
Then it was time to make the Christmas cards...
While the kids worked on that, I created some labels out of cardstock & scrapbooking paper.
I tied on a spoon with some wire ribbon (all from the dollar store) and our teacher gifts were complete!
