Make these easy flower pens with construction paper for the perfect back to school teacher’s gift! Your kid’s teachers will love this practical gift!
After a summer full of fun, sun and ice cream – transitioning back to school can be a bit difficult for many kids. With school right around the corner, I’m greeted each morning with my children dramatically announcing exactly how many days are left of their summer break. I’m trying my best to help them appreciate all the days they have left, instead of the days that have passed too quickly in their minds.
I’m reminding them of all the fun and exciting parts of returning back to school. They get to meet their new teachers, see their new classroom and see all the friends they missed over the summer!
To help calm the back to school jitters, I thought it would be fun to have my kids help me create a little something special for their new teachers. I knew their teachers would appreciate a bouquet flower pens. How to Make Easy Flower Pens with Construction Paper
