End of the Year Teacher Gift - Personalized Beach Bags


This was last year's end of the year teacher gift for my kids teachers. I used my Silhouette machine to make iron on letters for their names to make personalized Beach Bags. We filled the bags with a wet/dry bag, sunglasses, lotion and bottles of water with drink mixes. I thought this was a fun end of the year gift to give them to help them get ready for summer.

DIY Basketball Coach Personalized T-shirt

Remember how I mentioned one of the things I really liked about using the silhouette machine was that I could personalized things and this is a perfect example.
This was something my daughter's basketball coach had said several times during practice and she commented she was going to make him a shirt that said this. He didn't think she was serious but at their end of the season basketball party she presented him with this.
Again I had used the tinsel font that I bought from the silhouette design store and this basketball is also an image I purchased from there as well.

Where Did We Go Wednesday? Mammoth Dig Site in Hot Springs, SD

This is the man of the dig site in Hot Springs South Dakota. It is an active archaeological dig site. There was no digging going on when we were there because it was a weekend and the digging is done by professionals who volunteer their time to do that.
Of course because this is the mammoth dig site most of the bones that have been found here are of different mammoths but they have found other Bones from other animals as well.
We had never been to any type of archaeological dig site before so this was our first experience. Someday I hope that we can go to an archaeological dig site for some type of dinosaur.
This top picture is of a tooth of a mammoth. Their teeth are Mashers.

They have but this dig site is only partially been excavated and they anticipate in finding many many more.

Here is one skeleton that is relatively complete that they are still working on digging out.
Here you can see one of the most complete Mammoth skulls that they have found at this dig site.


Here is a picture of my son who is about 54 in and if you look at the top of the pole there are so scratch marks those are the scratch marks that the bear that lived during that time would have made. The skeleton of that bear is and the picture below.

Teacher Appreciation Week Gifts

Since it is Teacher Appreciation Week in a month, I thought I would share some of the things that we did last year.

I tried to remember each one of their teachers at least once during the week and often more than that, especially their main teachers.

I hope this helps give you some ideas and you show your appreciation to the teachers and your kids lives in some way or other, even an email or note of thank you is very appreciated.
