Schools OUT for the SUMMER!!!

We celebrated the end of the school year this week!  It's hard for me to believe that my oldest will be in THIRD grade next year.  Each school year gets a little busier...and goes by a little quicker than the year before.  

I love to make something "hand-made" for these teachers who work so hard all year through.  I was a teacher before my littles were born...and I KNOW the amount of hard work and dedication involved in being a teacher.  The work certainly doesn't end when the kids go are always in preparation mode...and always worrying about whether you are doing all you can to educate each and every child.

Melissa of Simply Sweets by Honeybee posted a tutorial on how to make these chalkboard cookies as well as an amazing apple tree cookie.  They were the perfect little treat to share with all those teachers who worked so hard with my littles this year.  You can find the tutorial here....but don't stop sure to scroll through Melissa's will drool...

I took Melissa's advice and found my scalloped rectangle cutter and mini apple cutter at of my favorite cookie cutter companies.

And like Melissa... I used just a fine paintbrush and some white americolor gel frosting to write the sentiment on the cookie... of course you could add any sweet message to these...

I hope all teachers realize just how appreciated they are....The hard work does not go unnoticed.  Happy Summer!!!

  2. These are so adorable! I bet the teachers loved them!
