quick easy teacher appreciation gifts you can make

If you have school aged children you know Teacher Appreciation is a BIG deal and it should be.

Teachers are important. 

Very important.

At our children’s school, we have a whole week dedicated to making our teachers and staff  feel extra special!


We have a fantastic committee of moms that organize everything so our amazing team of teachers and staff know how much parents and students truly appreciate them each and every one of them! From delicious catered lunches to a quick mid-day massage and even gift card giveaways there’s so many different ways you can show you care.

But a thoughtful gesture doesn’t have to be expensive or even time consuming to let every one of your kid’s teachers know you appreciate all they do for your child.  But, when my daughters asked if we could use the ‘rainbow’ flowers they saw when we were at Publix {I was thinking Umm, no not really mommy doesn’t like those so much} they of course threw them in the shopping cart anyway.

And, what a good choice that turned out to be.

$12 for 3 bunches of flowers at the grocery store plus some of the old pickle and spaghetti sauce jars I had laying around came together quite nice once I tried a little piece of wired burlap ribbon around them.

Oh and don’t forget to include a little Thank You note.teacher appreciation gifts thank you free printable

    What a sweet gift for your girls’ teachers! I’d be tickled pink if one of my students gave me one of those sweet bouquets.

    The teachers at your school must really enjoy the special activities that you and the other parents plan.
