I am totally sad that this school year is ending. No, it’s not because I get stressed just thinking about trying to work while the kids are home all day. It’s because next year none of my kids will be in first grade. My son then my daughter both had the best ever first grade teacher. We all love her. I spent so much time volunteering in her class over the last two years that she rarely has to give me actual directions on what she needs done. I’m still thinking of my gift for her. It will have to be awesome because she deserves it!
This week I picked a few crafts that I think would make cool and unique gifts for your favorite teacher. I figure that after teaching for 20+ years, our favorite teacher probably has more than enough coffee mugs.
For those of you who are new to Family Fun Friday, let me explain. Each week my friend, Monica, and I throw this link party. What that means is that we invite other bloggers to our blogs to share their best family friendly posts.
These are some of the best and undiscovered recipes, crafts, homeschooling resources, and parenting articles from around the web. We then pick our favorites and feature them during the next week’s link party. Take a look around and visit some of our awesome blogging friends.
Mason Jar Flowers from Worthing Court Blog. I know these are supposed to be “Mother’s Day gift but I think they make excellent teacher gifts as well.
10 Amazing Interior Design Ideas with Spray Paint from Inspiration for Moms. These ideas would make great unique gifts for your favorite teachers!
Air Plants Display from The Dempster Log Book. The hardiness and easy care of air plants make this an ideal classroom plant. It’s pretty too!
Geeky Coloring Pages for Adults from Daily Deals from a Nerd Mom. This is a fun way for teachers to relieve stress!
Candy Bar Wrappers from Growing Up Gabel. I would want chocolate too if I spent all day with a class full of children!
You’re a Star Teacher Gift and Printable from I Dig Pinterest. Cute and simple!
