Teachers are unbelievably deserving of a thank you gift. They teach our kids day in and day out and I can assume it is not always easy! Especially with 20+ little ones at a time. It takes a very special person to be able to do what they do! So no matter the budget I feel the importance of finding a way to give a teacher appreciation gift, no matter how small, to the brave souls that dedicate their lives to teaching my child!
A teacher is one person who puts color in a child’s world. Teachers create a way for wonder to find a child’s mind. These are three simple and inexpensive gifts that a child could give to their special teacher.
The Gift Of Coloring:
A simple pack of colored pencils is a functional gift. It can be dressed up with the Leather Cord and Free Printable Gift Tag and it becomes a classic gift any teacher will be happy to receive! Plus, coloring can be super relaxing, which is what teachers need during their off time!
DIY Sand Art in a Bottle:
This gift is inexpensive but beautiful! It can be completely handmade by a child. How is it so inexpensive? It’s not real sand. We used an edibile ‘sand’ that only cost a couple dollars. Add a little scrap fabric, leather cord, and the printable gift tag and gift is complete. This is a gift that is sentimental and makes a beautiful reminder of the child or of the joy brought to the teacher from her students.
Crayon Pen Holder:
This is also a functional, inexpensive, and beautiful teacher gift. How pretty would this be on any teacher’s desk?
It was unbelievably simple to make also.
We painted ours white, but you could choose any color you prefer.
I unwrapped each of the crayons I wanted to use.
I made two horizontal strips of tacky glue on the front panel of the box. Set crayons in a line and press firmly.
Let dry (about 30 minutes).
Add leather cord & printable gift tag and fill with pens or pencils.
We truley enjoy hand making gifts. For holidays and birthdays, we make it our mission to make at least one gift.
Here are some other ideas that could easily be made for teachers:
