DIY: Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas

It is that time of the school year where we can take our time to celebrate all those wonderful educators out there.   If your an educator, Thank you for all you do!
Having worked in the classroom for many years, I know what passion and hard work it takes to help teach our little ones become successful adults.  And I am most grateful for those teacher that are passionate for what they do.  Once again, Thank You!

That being said, here are some simple yet thoughtful ideas to gift that special teacher this week:

My kid's current school celebrates their teachers the entire week.  For Monday they asked to either color and apple print they sent home and/or send an apple to their teacher(s).  Why not make that apple extra special by tying it around with a bit of twine and a little lovely leaf note thanking them?  Nice and simple, yet very cute.


In the past I've made these decorated coffee cups which hide a gift card to the teacher's favorite coffee shop. (To see how click on photo.) 


Or these super easy to make note pads.  (To see how click on photo.)

DIY Tissue Flowers Craft

How about a lovely tissue flower or more?  (Too see how click here or on photo.)

 DIY Easter or Spring Centerpiece

If you have the time to add a bit more elbow grease making a thank you gift, make this adorable plant/flower pot using a recycled tin can.  (To see how click here or on photo.)

 However you decide to make them feel special, I'm sure they will very much appreciate it.

Have a great week!
