DIY Teacher’s Day Gift
So for those of us who do not home school there is a special day or week set aside each May to celebrate teachers. My kids love making their own Teacher’s Day gifts, really they love making DIY gifts for anyone really lol! When we lived in Louisiana they actually celebrated the teachers for an entire week and sent home a daily gift guide and that was really cool, I made this Teacher Appreciation Week Printable for my family, so we can still do a special thing each day to show our teachers appreciation.
Teachers Do So Much
Teacher’s really do so much for our babies. Not only are they the ones with them most of the day, but they are nourishing their hearts and minds during those hours. On top of that they provide so much financially for our children to be able to do activities and projects in school each day. They don’t make much money, but they dedicate so much of their time, love and finances into our children. Showing our appreciation should be a mandatory thing in my opinion!
DIY Treat For Our Teachers
I decided to go ahead and make, instead of buy, a special treat to give the teachers this year and I got the recipe on Pinterest for the yummy caramel sauce, you can check out that awesome blog here! It looks SO yummy and I actually saved a little for myself 🙂!
Okay so we made the caramel cream cheese sauce and put it in 4 oz mason jars. I have four teachers total to make a gift for so we had half of the sauce left, thank goodness or I would’ve had to make more lol! We then put the apples on top of each jar and wrapped it in cello bags.
I made this cute gift tag printable to go with the gift. You can print them out on card stock, punch a hole in them and tie them to the gift. I used ribbon I had left from Tom’s first birthday party. You can use twine or any ribbon you have on hand though!
They came out so adorable and were super simple to make. The kids had fun making them and the dip was so satisfying for baby Alex and me 😉!
What kinds of gifts do you make or buy for the teachers at your child’s school?
