Both Ben and I appreciate the teachers in Phoebie’s school because we know it is not easy to look after a preschooler, let alone a whole classroom of them.
Teacher’s Day this year will be celebrated in Phoebie’s school tomorrow, and because I was worried that Phoebie cannot manage the gifts while taking the school bus, I made use of the “golden opportunity” when I found out Ben was going into work late today.
I prepared two sets of gifts to show our appreciation – one for Phoebie’s class teachers and one for the whole staff team. I will share about the second gift tomorrow. For now, here’s the gift I prepared for Phoebie’s class teachers.
I thought of making origami flowers for the teachers but my knowledge of origami is limited, so I decided to google for origami instructions. Thankfully, I found this website with really clear step by step instructions for origami. I managed to find instructions both for the origami tulip leaf and origami tulip.
Before I could start, however, I realized I didn’t have the right shaped paper to do the origami.
So before I could even do the origami flower, I had to make square pieces of paper.
Next, I followed the instructions on the website for both the origami tulip and tulip leaf. And this is what I had when I was done.
The tulips cannot stand well on their own, so I decided to make a base for each of them.
I hope Phoebie’s teachers will like them.
