Great end of season gifts for the Team:
T-ball ruled our lives for 3 months, every Monday and Saturday, from March to June. I watched the kids throw, catch, hit and run around with their friends. And when the season ended, a few of the other team moms and I wanted to gift a little something to the team.
The coaches bought the kids cute bobble-head trophies and medals, so we decided to gift them collages. At first, one mom offered to print photos and make a DIY collage. While we all loved the idea, we knew that project would take hours – with over 20 kids on the team, plus 3 coaches, we didn’t want anyone to sit, cut, glue and shop for frames.
Luckily, someone mentioned PosterMyWall. Thank goodness!!! The site was easy to use, and with a little help from their gallery of templates and online tools, we were able to create two different types of collages.
For the coach, we used their team pic and this quote: “A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.” Ara Parasheghian
For each player, we made of a collage out of the best team candids. To personalize each kid’s gift, we added their team solo pic, name, number and team name/year. We used the site’s Color Pop feature to make each individual stand on their respective poster. It looked pretty cool.
The moms and I decided to buy the photo quality digital downloads and print at a nearby Costco. But PosterMyWall also offers offers different types of prints and even bulk download options!

Anyway, at the team pizza party, we presented these gifts. Of course, the kids loved them for about 5 seconds before something else piqued their interest, but at least their parents have a nice keepsake for the season 🙂
