It's nearly the end of the school season, can you believe summer holidays is just about upon us? Don't forget to say thank you to all of the teachers, coaches, and mentors who have made a difference in your child's life. Here is an idea for a cute little do-it-yourself gift that will make them melt. It's easy to make several all at once for all the special people you want to thank.

What you'll need:
A ceramic flower pot
A packet of wildflower seeds
Chalkboard paint. Check out this link for eco-friendly chalkboard paint.
A brush
A few pieces of coloured chalk
A small piece of ribbon
A cute little rag

How to make it: We recommend doing the chalkboard painting out of doors. Paint the outside of the flowerpot according the the instructions on the paint you've chosen. Once dry you can hand draw whatever thank you message you feel inspired to write. Tuck your little seed packet inside along with the folded rag. Tie the little piece of ribbon around the chalk and tuck those inside as well. If you feel so inclined to tie a bow around the pot to finish it off then go for it. Your thoughtful gift is ready to go!
