DIY Teacher Gifts for Teacher Appreciation Day

Teachers do so much for our children . I bet you can think of one teacher in your own school career that really made a difference. I remember it was my high school English teacher, one of my least favorite subjects.

He really took the extra time to make sure I improved my writing, a work in progress. Teacher appreciation week is approaching and consider giving them a token of your appreciation no matter how small. I have compiled another list of great DIY Teacher  Gifts you can easily make.

  1. My dearest neighbors are teachers and until I met them I had no idea how hard teachers work and how many hours they put in every day! And most of the time without the appreciation they deserve. These are all wonderful and I’m going to make something for them!

  2. Glad you liked them Amy, look forward to seeing if you make anything this year!

  3. I love these ideas! They are so cute. I end up buying things and they cost so much money.
