Hands Down Best Teacher {Teacher Appreciation Gift}

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. What are you doing for your teachers?  Are you in need of some fun (and simple) ideas that tell that special teacher that you are thankful for everything they do?  We have a few that were big hits with my kid’s teachers.

Here’s one of the gifts we’re doing this year.  It’s simple and fun and I love how they turned out.


The printables can be found on Eighteen 25.  They are perfect!  I printed them out and then on my Cricut machine, I printed out hand prints.  You could also trace your child’s hand print and use that.  Attach to a bottle of liquid hand soap (or even hand lotion) and voila!
Tell your teacher that they are Hands Down the Best Teacher Around!

Thanks for a Tea-Riffic School Year

I don’t know a teacher out there who doesn’t want to be appreciated.  What will you do this year?
