Our teacher appreciation gift cost less than a Starbucks certificate this year! Check it out*:
We bought a cheap frame at Goodwill, painted it teal, then bought a big box of crayons that we—okay, let’s be real here, I did this all by myself. Anyway, I snapped all the heads off of a box of brand-new crayons which, by the way, feels like popping the heads off a fresh batch of fluffy baby chicks. At least, I imagine. It felt so wrong that I’m not entirely certain that crayon mutilation isn’t a federal offense.
But still, I love the project and I’m sure we’ll find a use for the crayon bottoms. Until then, the decapitated crayons are soundly hidden in the basement and I just can’t get this TICK TOCK TICK TOCK heartbeat sound out of my head…**
*Teacher’s name changed. It felt like the right thing to do. IRL, there’s no white box around it, either; it’s printed on the paper.
**That’s an EAP reference, for you non-English majors***
