Back to School Teacher Gift supplies


1. Cut out your printable and glue it onto your colorful paper for a fun border and background. (You could also have your child simply write in the words “Ready for a CO_ORFU_ Year!” on a piece of paper with crayon, creating a fun saying themselves).

2. Add glue dots to the back of 2 crayons and attach them to make the “l’s” for the word colorful. If you want to give it a little more color, add in crayon decorations and drawings. You can also add a baggie of more crayons or glue this saying to the front of a box of crayons. Hooray for teacher gift ideas!
