Could we imagine our family’s lives without the help of our teachers in our schools and classrooms? They help our child every day, to read, learn math and science skills, to go from pre-Kindergarten through high school and even far beyond that. Studies have shown, over and over again, that one of the most rewarding careers is to be a teacher. Why? Because you help others in such a meaningful and a profound way, that it leaves a lifetime legacy. So it is little surprise that today, we bring you terrific DIY projects that you can make, to say Thank You to that special teacher in your child’s life.
Some schools have a Teacher Appreciation Day or a Teacher Appreciation Week. Other schools have the tradition of gift giving for teachers at the start and/or the end of the school year.
We’ve found you some terrific DIYs, especially for teacher gifts. No…these are not things a teacher can use in their classroom. More something to treat them just a little special, to be indulgent and let them know how much they matter. Because they do!
What we think is great, most of these projects can easily be done by a beginner. You’ll also find projects that are ideal for gift giving at different times of year, whether you want to give something in Fall, Winter, Spring or at the end of the year, the start of the Summer season. 33 projects in all!
So, let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing & Thank You Very Much to all of those Terrific Teachers!!!
