If you just realized that this week is Teacher Appreciation week, you still have time to get something together by Friday! Here are a few ‘last-minute’ gift ideas that you can do tonight.
1- Make a card. Simple as it may be, this was my favorite gift when I was a teacher. I loved cards and pictures that the kids made themselves!
2- Let them make an ornament for the tree. I got ornaments as gifts all year round and I still have them hanging on my tree every December. (Make sure that you write the date on it!)
3- One smart cookie: Print out a little slip of paper or write one one… better yet, have your CHILD write it… “Thank you for helping me be one smart cookie, Mrs. Mansfield!” (fill in with your child’s teacher’s name). ,
~ Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies or Funfetti Cookies with 3 ingredients
4- DIY FLOWER PENS: This was a hit for our son’s preschool teacher’s last year (thanks to my friend, Kristy, for sharing)
No time to paint? Just leave the flower pot as is and write on the card “Thank you for helping me grow!”
5- Crystal (over at Crystal & Comp) had a cute one! Just fill a jar with bubble gum balls & type out this cute saying: Thanks for CHEWSING to teach! I had a BALL this year!
6- Find out their favorite drink and try this (I would have loved this- and put it in the refrigerator to cool before you give it to them! Its a treat right on the spot!) Thanks, 24/7 Mom.
7- I loved this one that I found on Pinterest. It is quick & easy.
8. Make a clipboard- this is so easy! Buy a clipboard (anywhere) and print this out using word (just type it up, change the color and font & print it out). Glue it on or use decoupage. (Image Source)
9. The easiest one, buy hip2save is this:
OK- now get moving! 🙂
