Easy as 1-2-3


These next two teacher appreciation gifts were as easy as 1-2-3 thanks to some other great bloggers. The girls from Eighteen25 shared a free subway art printable HERE. (Note: The colors printed out much darker for me than the way they are pictured. I copied the printable into Photoshop to brighten the colors and change the size a bit.) All I had to do was grab a frame (I used an inexpensive 8x10 from Target), put it all together and wrap it up.

Kristy at The Diary of Dave’s Wife made it even easier. Again, Avery picked out a soda, I printed and cut the printable, and we tied the tag on with ribbon. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

And the best part is that they look so good when done. It didn’t cost a lot or take a lot of time to be thoughtful, but it makes a big difference to the person who receives it.

I’m off to make a strawberry pizza dessert for my middle school daughters’ teachers’ appreciation lunch. They didn’t want any part of taking gifts to their teachers – they are “too old for that,” according to them—so I am doing what I can get away with to let the teachers know we appreciate them.

What things are you doing for your children’s teachers this week?

I am so tickled you remember your middle school teachers! I taught in one for 7 years and those little things are so very appreciated! If your daughter doesn't want to bring a gift, send an email of thanks to her teachers...it will be loved more than you will ever know!
