Flu Season Teacher Gift Idea
Check out this Flu Season Teacher Gift Idea. Winter is the perfect time of year to restock your child’s teacher with some supplies for keeping germs at bay!
The Germs Have Arrived
Last week Lily came home from school and told me that the classroom next to hers had EIGHT kids absent due to fever/flu related illness. EIGHT! One third of the class! Yikes! So, as if my own current head cold wasn’t enough to tip me off, it’s a safe assumption that cold and flu season is here. It is here and the germs are spreading. Lily’s teacher sends a weekly newsletter every Sunday and guess what this weekend’s edition included? A request for disinfecting wipes!
I had actually picked up a pack of wipes a couple weeks ago, so this was a good reminder to tuck a can into each kids’ backpack and help restock the classroom supply. While it certainly doesn’t have to be during the winter months, just about any teacher will appreciate any supplies sent in ANY time of year. You could send in a pack of disinfecting wipes or put together a whole germ-fighting basket with wipes, tissues and hand sanitizer. No matter what you send, it’s appreciated.
And because I love silly, cheesy puns and because I am always looking for any excuse to slap a gift tag on something, here we are. Round up your disinfecting supplies, whatever they might be, along with our free printable gift tags and some twine or ribbon.
Tie a tag around the pack of wipes or basket of supplies with the twine or ribbon. It’s a cute little finishing touch and puts a little humor into a serious matter. The winter months are always a great time to send in basic school supplies as well like glue sticks, crayons and pencils. The fresh, new supplies from the start of the year are usually long gone by now and teachers will appreciate the restock!
