Our 2020-21 school year begins in about a month. And we just found out that our school district will be starting off with a hybrid platform – half the kids physically attending two days a week, the other half attending two other days, and the remaining days set for distance learning. So I imagine teachers will have to manage teaching both in-person and online at the same time for four days a week? Not to mention having to sanitize and instruct while trying to keep a germ-free environment. Crazy if this is the case! We will find out more soon. But to all of you teachers out there, I bow down to you! It’s a 24/7 job as it is. I can’t even imagine how much more time and creative energy this darn pandemic is causing you to put in. You ARE appreciated.
This project that I’m sharing today is something that could be given to a teacher this fall to show them that appreciation. OR…it a teacher wants to mass produce a bunch of these, they could become gifts for the students on the first day of school. These gifts could be made fairly quickly once you get the hang of the folds for the card and cuts for the box.
I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago how to assemble these gifts which include a mini shirt card, a bookmark, and container to hold them with a PocketBac Hand Sanitizer. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
