Teacher appreciation gifts


This week is teacher appreciation week at most schools.
I made a few gifts this weekend for my younger two kids teachers.

My first grader has a boy teacher.
That is pretty awesome.
Especially if you are a boy.
Each class in his school has a theme.
Owen's class has a superman theme.

So when I saw this picture, I knew I had to print it up and give it to my son's teacher.
I had the frame on hand and while this picture isn't a printable, I was able to copy and paste it into a word document and print it.  You can find it here.


I also used the teachers classroom logo and made a personalized note pad using my Silhouette software.


I loved how the notepad turned out, I made one for my daughter's teacher as well.


When I saw this last week on WhipperBerry, I knew I had to make my own version.


Again, I used the Silhouette machine to cut out the flowers and I had all of the other materials on hand.
I picked up the flower pot for 50 cents at a garage sale.
The grand total for this adorable gift, was less than $1.



Did you make any fun teacher appreciation gifts for you kids teachers?
Make sure you appreciate them this week for all of their hard work!

These are all really neat gift ideas!

I'm a teacher and would be thrilled to receive any of these because they all reflect so much thought and appreciation for what we do.

I love that superpower print out. I want it for myself (and education student...and also a mom) :)

The superhero theme for a classroom is awesome, I may have to steal that when I get my own room.
