As school winds down so does the dance season. And I am so thrilled with my daughter’s dance teacher this year. She’s kind and caring, patient and fun.
It’s such a blessing when your kids get a teacher or instructor who doesn’t just teach them, but also connects with them and inspires them.
So I came up with a couple of ways to show dance teachers and our little dancers that we appreciate them.

Dance Teachers Like You Are ’Tutu’ Good To Be True
You can do a lot of things with this type of gift. I put some cookies and Twix inside a Ball mason jar. You could put lots of stuff in it that you think they would like.
For the tutu around the rim of the jar, I simply tied pieces of tulle to a beige ponytail holder. This is really easy but very time-consuming. I decided to do two tutus, one a little longer to go on bottom and one with shorter tulle to go on top for a layered look. In all, I would estimate it took about 100 + pieces of tulle.
I bought the tulle at a craft store for just a few bucks a roll.
Tip: If I were to do it over again I would not choose tulle with glitter on it. Ever. Again. As you can image, I swept up a big pile of glitter when I was done and I lived with it on me for a couple of days, even after showering.
As a finishing touch, I punched a hole in the tag and tied it on the jar with a piece of jute string.
Thanks For Keeping Me On My Toes
For this gift I simply filled a cute glass drinking bottle from the dollar store with items for a home pedicure including cotton balls, nail polish and file.
And again, I simply punched a hole in the tag and tied it on the bottle with a piece of jute string.
Dancing Makes Life Sweeter
These are the gift bags I made for my daughter’s dance classmates. It couldn’t have been easier. I simply put some candy in a cellophane bag.
Then I just folded the bag down and stapled the tags on.
Dance Teachers Touch Lives One Step At A Time
I like this picture so much I thought it looked great in a frame. You can print it to any size.
I hope your little dancer or their dance teacher loves these.
