Teacher Appreciation Week is coming, and we here at Out of Office are grateful for the teachers we had and those who are inspiring young minds now. To that end, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite projects for teacher appreciation gifts. We hope one of these ideas will be the perfect fit to honor your child’s special teacher for a year of fun and learning. And keep a look out for another great project coming your way next week from guest blogger Patricia!
· Autograph book. Work together with the other kids in your child’s class to create a lasting keepsake for their teacher. Each child can have their own page with a school picture, where they can write a special note to the teacher, or even draw a picture of their favorite memory from the year. The book won’t take up too much space and can be cherished for years to come.
· Flash cards. Leave something behind to help your teacher and next year’s class by creating durable flash cards. These can be made for any topic, from colors and to multiplication tables. The lamination helps them stay clean and last through avid learners.
· Window clings. Another great leave-behind idea, these window clings can be used to list classroom rules or to help students master a topic. If you pick a certain subject, like the alphabet, your student can write a note to the teacher telling them how much they enjoyed learning about that topic during the year.
· Custom gift card holder. Help your child’s teacher indulge – whether it’s cookies or a pedicure – with this fun gift card holder. Using our template, your child can write a message or draw a picture thanking the teacher for a great year.
· Personalized gift tag. Use this to dress up a homemade gift, or even as a small token with a nice card of appreciation. Best of all, teachers will be able to use the tag on their school bags for years to come.
