Can you believe that the 2011-2012 school year is nearing an end and Summer break is right around the corner!?! As you may already know, during the week of May 7th-11th many schools will be honoring their teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week! Every year at this time, I struggle to come up with a unique AND affordable gift to present to my kiddo’s teachers that my kids can also participate in creating. So I was very excited when reader, Trudy, emailed in the following adorable idea…
“Thought I would share in case anyone else likes to give their children’s teacher something for Teacher Appreciation week. Every year my kids and I like to make something for teacher appreciation week. This year we decided to use some of the glass jars I have saved from all of the great deals on spaghetti sauce and clearance jelly beans. The yellow ribbon was $1 @ Michaels and I just used a black marker to add the ruler marks. I also bought one sheet of card stock @ Michaels for $1, it had a cute school theme. I cut circles from the paper and hot glued them to the lid, and added a frame to the label and made a little card to hang on the jar. The label says “No beans about it (teacher’s name) RULES”. A cute (and inexpensive) thank you for teachers.”
On that note, please share your affordable and meaningful gift ideas for teachers in the comment section below! And, if you’re a teacher, what gifts do YOU personally enjoy receiving?
To all of you teachers out there….THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! You are so valued and appreciated! :)
