My son is graduating and so is his teacher! She's leaving to start her own Children's House in her own neighborhood. We usually get or make little gifts for all the guides and admin, but this year I'm thinking it would be nice to make something (with my son) that she could use or have in her new classroom, since she'll be starting from scratch. 


The only real ideas I have so far is for my son to embroider something and help me sew a pillow for the book/peace area, or going to a thrift store and finding some sweet vases or things that need polishing. I don't know what she already has, she's mentioned that she has made a fair amount of supplies. Maybe just a drawing or artwork that he makes and frames for the wall? Any ideas would be appreciated.
