Well hello all! Are your kids almost done with school? We’re done tomorrow – whoot! I am SO grateful we didn’t have to go an extra week this summer with all the snow days we had this winter. Most of our school systems nearby added some time onto each day to avoid that.
Today I’m gathering some goodies for the teachers and bus driver as a thanks. I like to include something handmade if possible, along with what they really want (a gift card and a handwritten thank you). :)
I’ve seen so many great hand and foot scrub recipes over the years – some complicated and some incredibly easy. I’m going with the latter today.
These are all easy, quick scrubs that only take two ingredients each! I love the first one because it makes a great lip scrub as well. Cause you can eat it. :)
It just takes sugar and honey:
I’m not going to give exact measurements here and I know that will stress some of you out – but I found you just mix till it’s the right consistency. You really can’t mess it up!
I just did a small batch for this one as a lip scrub:
You’ll want to make sure it’s thick and pasty but not too dry. This is a great hand scrub as well! I know honey can get expensive though so I think this one is best for the lips.
My sister came over a couple weeks ago and whipped up this super easy scrub for Mother’s Day:
Again, only two ingredients! I LOVE coconut oil and use it all the time when cooking, but it’s great for your skin as well. I added a few drops of lavender oil to it as well.
Coconut oil isn’t cheap either, so this next one is the cheapest version I’ve found and it works GREAT:
Just mix sugar and dish soap. Done. Extra points if you have pink soap! :) I just used what I had so the slight color was a bonus. I used one cup of sugar and just poured and mixed the soap till it was the consistency I wanted. Test it out as you go to see if it’s just right.
SUPER simple and super cheap! I love this one because when you use it with water it foams up just a bit.
I simply cannot walk away from the cute craft stuff in that aisle so it was nice to put the little stickers and stamps to use:
So there you go! Three easy scrubs with only two ingredients each!
I’ll combine these with gift cards and some other goodies for the teachers:
And at least this part of the gift was free! If you don’t have dish soap and sugar you’re looking at less than five bucks to make quite a few of these. This would have been perfect for my boy’s preschool days when we had six or seven teachers to buy for!
Do you do anything special for the teachers at the end of the year? Are you ready for summer?
