Another teacher appreciation week - day 5

The final day of teacher appreciation week!  Again, I stuck with apples.  Again, I turned to an idea I pinned a long time ago...

I followed the recipe for the most part, but I wanted to make enough treats to give all the teachers and helpers who work with the kids.  I bought the small mason jars at Target.  This gift is a little mixing and a lot of layering...

Instead of buying Skors candy bars and chopping them into little pieces as the recipe stated, I found this in the baking section.  Done!

I printed a little label and cut it out with a scalloped hole punch.

Thank you
for being such

a sweet teacher!

I purchased small green apples and they were the perfect size!

Whew, another week of teacher appreciation gifts is complete!

Another teacher appreciation week - day 4

A few months ago, I picked up these adorable apple notebooks from IKEA and knew that would be a perfect teacher gift.

I simply added a red pen and a quick note and the gift was ready to go!

Take NOTE:
You are the
best teacher
and I appreciate

Check back for the last gift for teacher appreciation week... it is going to be a sweet one!

Another teacher appreciation week - days 2 and 3

I am back with two more days of easy teacher appreciation gifts.

DAY 2 was a little treat.  I found this quick idea on Pinterest and it turned out really cute!

DAY 3 was an orange inspired day!  I have had this idea pinned for a long time and it just seemed perfect for this time of year.  I am tired - and ready for summer.  The kids are tired.  The teachers must be tired!

I made an even simpler version of this idea by purchasing perfect little orange drinks, printing a simple note and cutting in out with a scalloped hole punch.

you glad it’s
almost summer?!

I sure am J

Three days down, two to go!

Another teacher appreciation week - day 1

Last week did not start off as planned, so I am a bit behind...  I was asked very last minute (just before 10pm Sunday night) to decorate a teacher's door that was neglected (not done) by the homeroom mom.  It was for Caleb's teacher and I could not say no.  I wanted to, but didn't.  She has been amazing this year with Caleb!  Last year I spent WEEKS planning and researching the door I decorated and this year was the complete opposite.  I looked at Pinterest, ran up to school for paper and had the door finished within a couple hours.  Even though it was not my best work, it got done and I know the teacher truly appreciated it.

I took a couple pictures with my phone...

Now back to the teacher gifts!

This year I planned on sending a little gift each day because the kids really got excited about handing their teacher something - even if it was small - last year.  So, for Day 1, they were blessed to receive original artwork done by me!

I painted signs for the teachers, a tutor and the librarian...

printed a simple tag to add to the sign...

Because of you,
I want to …

for all you do,

and had the kids sign their names...

and sent them off to school!

Check back for more teacher appreciation ideas!
