Show them that you appreciate all they do for you with a simple project.
Sometimes a gift means a little more when it arrives unexpectedly. Surprise your teacher with a little gift whenever you are feeling thankful. Because when you think about it, any time is the right time to express your gratitude. Teachers work hard all year long and a simple gift can help encourage and motivate them, no matter when you decide to give it.
It’s the Thought…
When it comes to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects remember that it’s the thought that counts. Gifts don’t have to be expensive to show that you care. Sometimes the most touching gifts are the ones you make yourself. We’ve brought together some ideas to help you show your teacher how much you appreciate their hard work. It’s up to you to use your imagination to choose which gift to make and how to decorate it. Doing nice things for the people who help you shows that you care and helps encourage and motivate them to keep up the good work.
Here are some simple DIY projects that you can do to show your teacher that you value what they do.
ORIGAMI (to accompany card/gift card)
Most teachers love to read, so a simple gift that can help them is a hand-decorated bookmark.
PENCIL VASE (with flowers)
A simple vase or pen/pencil holder made out of pencils is a thoughtful little project that your teacher can really use!
Make a nice collage out of photos and scraps of paper to capture your feelings and share them with your teacher. It’s a great way to make an artistic gift to show your thanks.
A SIMPLE CLASSIC
A gift doesn’t have to be big to make a big impression. Sometimes the simplest things work best. Give your teacher an apple, a pear, an orange or your favorite fruit. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!
