A few years back, boy child and girl child were enrolled in a preschool and as the school year was coming to a close, we wanted to do something special for the teachers from the kids. So I found a free zoo print background and printed the below poem I wrote on top of it to create a greeting card. Then I had the kids place zoo critter stickers all over the paper as they saw fit.
The teachers loved the card the kids had made and they so enjoyed giving their own sticker creations to their teachers. These ladies who cared for our children were so loving and kind every single day and we love and miss them dearly.
I’m Quite the Little Zoo
Like the lion and the Tiger,
I am getting big and strong.
I am also growing taller
Like Giraffe with neck so long.
Like the stripes upon the Zebra’s back,
There’s no one else like me.
I can play and climb and run around
Like a Monkey in a tree.
As a wise and wrinkly Elephant,
I am smarter every day.
I’m tough like Mr. Alligator
When I go out to play.
I’ve grown so much in this whole year
Thanks so much to you.
I’m many things as you can see
I’m quite the little Zoo!
Here’s a free printable version of the poem so you can use it with your child to make a handmade gift for your child’s teacher! Enjoy!!
