Copy these teacher gifts with finds from the dollar store

The end of the school year is again in sight and you may be wondering, yet again, what to get your child's teacher in appreciation of their efforts throughout the school year. Today's Parenthas a list of 15 different gift ideas for teachers, that are worth checking out. Some of them can be copied successfully with items from the dollar store, which is good news if you have more than one child in school.

Art supplies -- Crayons, kid scissors, glue sticks - these are all necessary supplies for a classroom that teachers often pay for out of their own wallets. You can buy them in bulk on Dollar Tree Direct, but I'm sure they have these supplies in-store, as well. Where I live, the dollar store also has good quality tempura paints and nine paint brushes in assorted sizes for $1 per package or 8-oz. bottle of paint. If you can find one, a handled caddy would make a great place to pack your finds for gift-giving to make a present any primary teacher will appreciate.
