For a personal touch without spending much money, give the teacher a cutting from a plant in your home or garden. Help your child decorate a terra-cotta pot by painting it or using a decoupage technique. One decoupage method is to apply colored tissue paper all over the pot, then add words or pictures using scrapbook paper. With proper care, the plant will last long after your child has moved on to the next grade.
