DIY Crayola Art- Teacher Gifts

It's the end of the school year and that means time for teacher appreciation gifts.  Each year for the past several years, we have been making crayon art for the teachers.  This year, we did the same and added a fancy colorful background. 

I have the kids write their teacher's name , e.g. "M is for Mrs. McKinney" and sign it. 
This year we had a handful of "m" teacher's to thank! 

I use an exacto knife to trim the crayons and a hot glue gun to secure them to the paper.  I let the kids arrange them on the page in the color order they desire.  They write a hand written thank you note to accompany the gift. 
What do you do for end of the year favors?  There are so many great ideas on pinterest.  Please share some of your favorites! 
Happy summer!

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
