Make Teacher Appreciation Gifts with Your Kids
Next week, May 7-11, marks National Teacher Appreciation Week. Recognize the educators who influence your kids on a daily basis, and take the time to thank your child’s teacher with a homemade present. A personal gift from you and your child will convey your gratitude, and you can have fun making it! Try one of these ideas or come up with your own way to show appreciation for the educators in your child’s life.
Craft idea from: Tip Junkie
- 2 graham cracker squares
- 1 marshmallow
- 1 mini Hershey bar
- 1 clear plastic bag
- 1 note card or piece of paper
- 1 stapler
First, work with your child to decorate the note card with a “thank you” message, illustrations, and anything else you have in mind. Then, place the snacks in the plastic bag, fold and staple the decorated note card on the end of the bag to seal it. Voilà - an easy, personalized, and yummy treat!
