Now that everyone has their presents I can share what we did for my class, and for DJ's teachers (plus my co-teacher).
For my homeroom I did a little gift bag, with 6 pencils, an eraser, and a box of crayons.
Then I told them the stickler to the situation was that it had to stay at school for them to have after the holiday. :-)
Then I saw the next thing that we did on http://pinterest.com/ and I wanted to try it. I think they came out pretty darn cute.
