Thank You For Helping Me Grow!-Teacher Appreciation Gift

It's that time of year when we get to show our appreciation to those fantastic teachers that teach our kids each day! My son is lucky to have two very involved, patient, caring teachers in his Montessori. I've been so impressed at how well they've handled not just my exuberant son, but also his overprotective, neurotic mama. I've learned so much them! Last year they both got cake clutches, and since we have the same teachers this year, I wanted to do something different.

I've noticed that they have a ton of houseplants in the window by the classroom and decided that a plant might be perfect!
I picked up a planter and jumbo popsicle sticks at our local big box store.  I fooled around a bit on the computer and came up with these cute labels!

I ended up using divisions of my aloe vera plant, but I think it would be easy to find some fun flowering annuals at an nursery. I only could print mine in black and white but I did find a cute color label at I Am Momma Hear Me Roar.
