DIY: Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher Appreciation Week starts on Monday, May 7th.  Have you figured out how you’ll be honoring the teachers in your life yet?

Why not take on a small DIY project?  The kids will have fun helping you put it together and their teachers will appreciate the thoughtful gesture.  Here are six of our favorite ideas:

(right) A lovely little planter kit to help teach welcome spring.

(top left) Every teacher needs a treat jar.  It’s up to them to decide whether or not to share.
(bottom left) These magnetic bookmarks are super cute.  The pencil and ruler would be especially appropriate.
