I can think of a dozen fun things to give to a female teacher right off the top of my head, but for my son's male teacher? I got nothin'. Especially since I don't like to give food gifts. Call me sexist, but for some reason, I can't see Mr. O enjoying a gift of homemade fizzy bath salts...maybe his wife would...
Anyway, we had MC's conference the other day, and Mr. O revealed that he loves Transformers. He's about our age, and I remember all the boys being way into Transformers when I was a kid, so it makes sense. That got my brain's wheels turning and here's what I came up with.
I got this fun Transformers Kre-O set (which is kind of like Lego) for free using a coupon last year around Christmas time. It's Optimus Prime (who is the leader of the good-guy transformers, just in case you didn't know), and while the figure doesn't transform per se, you can build either a robot or a truck with it.
You can see where this is going, right? Oh yes, it's a pun.
for inspiring MC to
For this particular transformer, Optimus Prime, I'm tempted to add something like, "...TRANSFORM his mind for OPTIMUS learning." I'll have to ponder that one for a bit. I bet, if you looked hard enough, you could even find a Transformer font to use (I used Elmore)...
If you can't find a Transformer Kre-O set, no worries--anything from the Transformer genre will work--all the better if it's a puzzle or game the teacher can use in his classroom. Even stickers or a rubber stamp would work.
Happy teacher gifting, friends.
