10 subtle ways to thank a teacher


This week is teacher appreciation week and I cannot remember ever wanting to thank a teacher as much as I do right now. The twins first year of preschool has been a raving success – in large part due to the awesomeness of our teachers! Here are ten easy projects we’ve previously crafted that would send a simple and subtle “Thank You” to the teachers who’ve worked their bottoms off to teach our kids all year.

Painted striped tote bag to carry their supplies in style.

A pretty lantern to enjoy during their summer off.

A dixie cup vase from the kids to show their thanks in pre-school style.

Fabric bowls for corralling all their favorite desk supplies.

A scarf wrapped bouquet that they will love now and enjoy into next fall.

 Fill their kitchen with summer goodies in a simple dish towel fruit tote

 Gilded bottles with your favorite summer drink recipie inside.

You’re tea-riffic tea bags with a made at home blend.

Flower basket from grocery bags.

A wreath for their desk chair and then for their door.

If you are a teacher reading this – thank you for all your hard work. You are amazing!

    Oh what a great list. I worked as a teacher before staying home with my girls and I would have loved any or all of these items. Of course, I loved whatever I was gifted….but I have to admit, I wound up with a lot of “apple” art and pads of cutesy paper! Too much to use in one life time :)

    these are such lovely and simple ideas. What a nice way to show appreciation rather than the usual gift card.
