Teacher Appreciation Gift

Can you Believe that May is already here?

It seems like this school year has FLOWN by!

Before we all know it, school is going to be out, and our kids are going to be telling us how bored they are!

I have thoroughly enjoyed having a few hours to myself each week, as we have sent our oldest off to preschool.

His teacher is nothing shy of Extra-Ordinary, and I am SO thankful for all the things she has taught him thus far.

So of course, I put a little something together for her, for tomorrow’s Teacher Appreciation Day.

Teacher Appreciation Gift


Have you seen these DARLING plastic Mason Jar Cups?

They are my FAVORITE!!!! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I carry mine EVERYWHERE!

They cost less than $5 and can be found at Wal-Mart or Target.

To make this Darling Apple Mug,

I chose a red one (from Wal-Mart) Filled it with a Gift Card to a favorite Drink Stop

(Sonic, Starbucks, Circle K, Seven Eleven, etc.)

And some yummy crystal light packets that were wrapped in polka dot tissue paper.

From there, Print out the Tag, and Leaf I created HERE.

{I highly recommend printing these on Cardstock}

It looks better, and is easier to work with than a flimsy piece of paper.

Punch a Hole in the end of your leaf and slide it down over the straw.

And Last attach the Tag by tying it around your mug with cute ribbon or baker’s twine.

Easy Peasy!

And Now you have a DARLING gift to send with your kiddo to give to their teacher just in time for

Teacher Appreciation Day!
