Teacher Appreciation Week Gift IdeasCherilyn Ashley
Teacher Appreciation Week 2019 will take place from May 6th – 10th. This is a great time for kids to honor their teachers in fun and creative ways all week long! We have included some creative, quick and easy Teacher Appreciation Week gift ideas.
A Note of Gratitude for Helping Us Grow
A handwritten note thanking one’s teacher is a great place for children to start. Have one’s child be creative with stickers, drawings and markers to make the card personalized. Have them think about all the ways their teacher has helped them grow this year. Include in the card a pack of seeds that the teacher can plant and remember one’s gratitude as the plants grow.
Helping Us Bloom
The joy of a teacher is seeing a student bloom. Flowers are a great way to brighten up any classroom. Help one’s child make a teacher-themed vase by gluing No.2 pencils around a 7-inch clear cylindrical vase. Finish the vase off with a school-themed ribbon and add some sunflowers or special spring flowers.
A Sweet Treat for a Sweet Teacher
Who doesn’t like homemade goodies? One’s teacher surely does. Spend some quality time with one’s child in the kitchen whipping up a batch of apple-themed cupcakes. Bake the cupcakes in red cupcake wrappers. When cooled, frost it with icing and sprinkle red sugar over the top. If one is too busy to bake, remember teachers always love chocolates!
Thanks A-Latte with a Kiss
Most people drink coffee, tea or cocoa daily, so one can be confident this gift will get used. Purchase a plain mug and paint a wide stripe around the center with chalkboard paint. Chalkboard paint can be purchased at most hardware or craft stores. Once the paint has dried, have one’s child write their teacher’s name out with chalk, and fill the mug with Hershey Candy Kisses and a gift card to a local coffee shop.
Remember, thanking our teachers should be done all year long. Teacher Appreciation Week, though, only happens once a year—so have fun with this week!
