The Teacher Appreciation Society

22 Jul

Our teachers do an amazing job.

Just keeping control over a class of 25+ children, let alone being able to to teach them anything takes super human levels of skill and patience.

Over the past week my friends have been posting some of their beautiful homemade gifts. I thought it would be really nice to do a round up of these offerings.

First up is Lucy, who created a fantastic personalised shopper. Her son wrote on the bag and she embroidered over the top. I think you’ll agree it is a little cracker.

She also made some little sweet bags from brown paper and filled them with Jelly Beans

Aida upcylced some tiles using blackboard paint to create these lovely coasters.

Emma Re-purposed some plastic pop bottles to create an apple for teacher. She popped homemade necklaces inside.

Cholpon made some lovely crochet bookmarks which she popped into cards made by her son.

And as for us? We upcycled some old clipboards that I had found in the bottom of the cupboard.

There is something here for everyone to have a go at. Get the children involved, they’ll really enjoy helping to make gifts for their teachers :-)
