From Small Hands

We love to make our teacher gifts. These are from last year.

My dad is a singer, so we gave copies of his holiday CD to everyone with handmade CD case covers. Above are all of the different covers my son (Logan) made.

We have a small, intimate school, so we make gifts for all of the teachers...not just his.

He came up with the ideas, specific to each teacher and I helped him with some of the shapes. We used scraps of colorful paper left over from other projects.

He layered the simple shapes to create one-of-a-kind collages that we popped into the cases.

I thought they were so sweet and ultra personal.

I also like that he sees the value in creating something with his hands and mind.

A good life lesson, I think.
