Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum, How many teachers do you Thank?

Posted on


What a a Fun and Bubbly project to appreciate multiple teachers at a school! Teachers spend countless hours creating a fun and loving learning environments for our kids without expecting anything in return but how can we not thank someone who spends 7 hours straight with our kids! I know I don’t say the TWO words near enough and doing these little inexpensive gestures shows them that we really our Thankful for the work they do!
A few days ago I was at the Dollar Tree, a place that things just happen to jump into the cart and scream at me “Please turn me into one of your fabulous creations” Okay or maybe it’s just me thinking “hmmm…what can I do to jazz this up!” Well These plain looking gumball machines were on an end cap and I knew I could create something fun, so I grabbed one and 3 bags of gumballs to fill up the globe. Once I got home I opened up Silhouette Studio and began playing….that’s when I came up with the idea of a teacher gift…I found an Owl with an apple and then created a number strip to go all the way around the globe along the seam, Then of course I grabbed my SQ1 Printable for easy application and within a few minutes the Gumball Machine was complete!
