Teacher Thanksgiving gift

I don't know if you are anything like me but as a stay at home mom i am broke quite often! Especially around the holidays when i am making tons of deserts and presents.  So here is an idea for a cute teacher gift just to let her know you appreciate her and are thinking of her.  I know gifts for teachers are not required but i like to give them something small on every holiday (and something bigger for christmas and end of year).  Something holiday themed.  I will start posting the crafts i make for each holiday.  i can tell you now the st. patricks day one is super cute!!  So anyway last night Dalten and I made this cute little card for his teacher.  Word of warning, i AM NOT and artist and i HAVE the worst penmanship known to mankind. lol  But it's the thought that counts, right? =)
Dalten had so much fun making the "leaves"  he chose the colors and where to put them at. He liked making the leaves fall to the ground. haha  I was hoping he would make it fuller but he said it was complete. lol

With this we gave her a watchamacallit as this is her favorite candy/chocalate (which we discovered from our start of the year survey we gave her) and a filled Cornucopia.  We filled this waffle cone cornucopia with peanuts, pretzel m&m's and marshmellows.  here is a picture of it but i already had it in the sack and used my phone but i got the idea from this tutorial here http://ourdailyobsessions.blogspot.com/2010/11/edible-cornucopias.html  This is such a cute idea and actually what i am taking to my Thanksgiving celebration for all the kiddos, along with turkey poop, which i got from Mine for the Making http://mineforthemaking.blogspot.com/2010/11/turkey-poop.html =) so cute!
