DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts
An apple is nice, but it's time to up the ante and let our teachers know how much we value and appreciate the time, energy, care and support they give our children. May 5th through 9th is Teacher Appreciation Week in the US and it's a chance to celebrate the individuals who spend as much time with our kids as anyone outside the home. Here are few DIY teacher appreciation week gifts that the kids can make with supplies found on hand at home. No need to spend a mint to create a gift that shows how much you appreciation your teacher.
I whipped up these two designs in a matter of minutes and create 50 of the paper calculator teacher appreciation gifts adding three Starburst to each in about an hour. I had the kids scribble their names, which took the longest! And yes, I did bribe them with a Starburst or three!
Here's what you'll need to create your own adorable Teacher Appreciation Gift: Calculator
- card stock
- ink pen
- glue stick
- scissors, rotary blade or paper cutter
- copy machine if you're making multiples
- tissue paper
- washi, floral or scotch tape
- tootsie pop(s)
- green paper for leaves
- pen or pencil to sign
- scissors or rotary blade (makes cutting tissue paper easy)
Today is a gift. Let's put a bow on it! 🎀
