Grace's Last Day of Preschool + Free Printable Teacher Gift Bookmark

After an exciting year full of huge developments for Grace, her last day of preschool was last week. I cannot even begin to explain how much she has matured in the last year and what a difference preschool has made. Even her ballet teacher mentioned to me the other day how much she has come out of her shell and how her confidence has grown. She went from barely talking at all to talking non stop and she has so many little friends that she loves playing with. She grew extremely attached to her teacher and there were tears shed when I went to pick her up on the last day. I'm not sure she completely understands that she won't be seeing her classmates or teachers all summer. She told me after we left that she wants to go to preschool forever.

Her teacher and the other staff at her preschool go above and beyond for the kids in my opinion so I really wanted to make a nice gift for an end of the year thank you. However our budget is tight right now so I didn't have a lot to spend. I got creative with Photoshop and with the help of Pinterest came up with the idea of a bookmark and notebook for the director, secretary, and her speech pathologist. I found these adorable notebooks in the $1 section at Target and printed the bookmarks out on card stock and then laminated them.

I wanted to do something special for her main teacher, her beloved Miss Diane, so I played with my sewing machine and serger to create this boxy bag.  I used this tutorial I found on YouTube and it was super simple. Grace picked both fabrics and was so excited to give it to her teacher. I included one of the bookmarks, a gift card to Barnes & Noble and a handmade card from Grace.

Grace will be counting down the days until school starts again!
