My dad is an elementary art teacher. These are a few of my favorite benefits of being the daughter of a teacher:
- He gets chocolate milk for lunch and stashes them all in his fridge for my sisters to drink.
- He gets us into the gym after hours to play hockey (when you're pregnant they make you play goalie, fyi), knock out, or one of our made-up games like butt-ball, lord of the rings, and the hula hoop game. Good times.
- He gets summers off so he was always home with us.
- He lets us use his art equipment, like the paper puncher!
I used his old fashioned metal puncher for this, but it looks like you can get something similar in a cricut cartridge. Anyway, it punches out two snowflakes with slits down the side like this.
And you can just slip the two pieces together to make a 3d snowflake!
They're really pretty scattered around a tree. But maybe this year I'll string them up into... yeah, another garland.
So those are some of the perks to being a teacher's daughter. And one of the perks of being in a big family with lots of sisters? Pictures like these that are too good to NOT put on the internet.
Thank heavens for those shorts.
What are your family perks?
