Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week at my daughter’s preschool. I’ve got ideas for 5 days of gifts.
The preschool sent out a letter about teacher appreciation week and has a daily theme for the week.
- Monday – “M”essage Day
- Tuesday – “T”reat Day
- Wednesday – “W”onderful Picture Day
- Thursday – “R”ed Apple Day
- Friday – “F”lower Day
I’m not a scrapbooker so these cards are very simple. Card stock, colored paper, stamps and grosgrain ribbon. I left the inside blank for Elle Belle to write a message and draw a picture.
I figure Ellie can help me make some yummy cookies and we can fill this container with them. Mmmmm…. I used an empty bread crumb container and covered it in fabric. (You’ll notice that covering things in fabric is one of my favorite things to do.) I used the grosgrain ribbon again and stamps. These are the stamps for words that I like to use. Believe it or not, I got them for a dollar at Wal-Mart along with the pigment.
Wonderful Picture Day
This day is pretty self explanatory. Framed artwork by Ellie.
Red Apple Day
Ok, I know it’s not red. It’s also not mine. I found this idea on Pinterest, here is the source. She has a really interesting recipe for apple dip but my mom has one I’ve always liked that’s a bit less fattening. All that’s in it is cream cheese and vanilla extract. Here’s the container I made for it.
This got me super excited because in an earlier post I had made fabric flowers to give to teachers at the end of the year. So I guess the preschool teachers will be getting theirs early. In that post I linked to where I found out how to make them. But while I was making them, I found some easier ways to do it, so keep an eye out for a future tutorial. My way.
So there you have it. I’m sure there are a lot of other really good ideas on Pinterest and if you have any ideas or projects you’d like to share, please do!!
See you soon!
