Easy & Pretty Teacher Appreciation Gifts

You may or may not be aware of this, but Teacher Appreciation Day is tomorrow, May 5th!

I happen to be highly thankful for my kids’ teachers and all they do on a daily basis. Therefore, I want to let them know what they mean to our family by at least giving them a little something.

As I am also in charge of our school’s PTO, I came up with this handy little idea for all the staff in our school this year:

Packs of flower seeds displayed on various flower and leaf shapes I made from printed cardstock.

I attached each one to a bamboo skewer to act as a stem.

The skewers are inserted into foam blocks I placed at the bottom of several baskets. Colored mesh was bunched up to cover up the foam. I attempted to place the flowers at different heights to create some semblance of a flower arrangement.

I then made a sign that reads “Thank you for helping our students grow.”

Hopefully they like it.

Many thanks to all of the teachers out there!
