Frugal Teacher Appreciation Gift

Teacher Appreciation day is May 9th this year...but some sites are reporting that Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1st-5th or May 8th-12th depending on location).

Gifts don't have to be expensive to show you care. This past year we let the kids make their own gifts for their teachers.
We picked up some geraniums at Home Depot and let the kid pick out their own pots and plant their flowers for their teachers. Home Depot also has small 8 packs of certain flowers for $2.50 each, you could break those off and plant them too!

Geraniums - $1.39 each at Home Depot
Ceramic pot - $1 each at Dollar Tree
Paper gift bag - 2 for $1 at Dollar Tree
Hand Sanitizer - 3 for $1 at Dollar Tree
Homemade card by kids - $0
Total price per gift = $3.22


Add a fun little Thank You note, like "Thanks for Helping Me Grow this Year".

Homemade Pumpkin Dog Biscuits #Recipe #MyDogsPurpose #ADogsPurpose

 photo dbone.jpg

This weekend we decided to have a family movie night and watch "A Dog's Purpose", it was such a great film! Afterwards I wanted to pamper my own pooches, so I made them homemade dog biscuits!

These are so frugal, easy to make and only four ingredients!

 photo Capture_1.jpg
Ingredients:
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup pure canned pumpkin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour (you can use whole wheat flour as well, but some dogs have wheat allergies)

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the egg, pumpkin and cinnamon in a bowl.
     
  3. Slowly add the flour until the dough is stiff. You might need to use your hands
  4. Wet counter top and cover it with wax paper (makes for easy clean-up) and cover wax paper with flour or just place flour on your counter top.
  5.  Roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is about ¼ thick.
     
  6. Use dog bone cookie cutter  to cut out the treats.
  7.  Place cookies on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake cookies for 40 minutes until crunchy and hard.
  8. Your house will smell wonderful and  your pooches will anxiously await for them to cool down!
