Keep Calm Summer Is Almost Here Teacher Gift Basket Idea

Keep calm summer is almost here! The countdown for summertime is upon us and I don’t know a teacher out there that isn’t looking forward to a much needed break. And by break I mean lesson planning, renewing certifications and continuing education through the summer – but hopefully they can do it by the pool! The teacher survey I had our teachers fill out at the beginning of the year helped me create this teacher gift basket. I made sure to coordinate their favorite colors and candy into this summer themed gift. I broke out my Cricut Maker machine and crafted up a special “teacher life” tumbler to go in the gift basket. This gift makes me want to go jump into a pool, hope our teachers love it!
