We are always looking for the perfect gift to give our parent volunteers. No present ever seems to equal the time they donate to our classrooms. So why not pull their heartstrings and make a Volunteer Journal? Print out our prompts (both mom and dad choices available), or make your own, and buy a bound journal. Cut and glue the prompts to the top of each page. Then ask the child of the volunteer to respond to and illustrate each prompt. Write a personal note to your volunteer on the inside of the cover. Encourage them to continue writing in the journal with their child as the years pass. Expect tears!
