    I agree - teachers love tote bags, for elementary school teachers use primary colors. (My sister teaches kindergarten and one was not enough!)

    do both. An Apron and a tote bag. if you know her favorite colors do them. I would also suggest going black or dark color on the bottom of the bag so that it wont show dirt so much. I have a couple and wish that they had dark bottoms. That way I don't have to wash or clean them so mcuh.

    Teachers - what do you like to get?

    Notes of appreciation probably go over well, too.

    If you look here, you can see what I helped my 3 8 year old grandchildren make for their teachers. They each wrote a personal card on why they appreciate them.

    While these gifts were not the most practical, they certainly were a big hit in the classroom. Teachers love to be appreciated.

    My grandaughter and I made a little autograph quilt for the whole class to sign out of a 12" block and 20 siggies. It was quick to make and came out really cute. Very fast project.
