Do-It-Yourself Teacher Gift Ideas from Disney FamilyFun‏

My boys only have nine days of school left! This is the time of year when things are winding down, awards are given out, and we show our appreciation for our teachers! Are you stumped about what to get your child’s teacher to thank him or her? Here are some great ideas from the May issue of Disney FamilyFun magazine that you and your child can make together! (Click on the title of each craft to access the directions.)

Stamps of Approval: These sweet stamps let teachers say “great job” with ease, and they come together fast from cork and adhesive-backed craft foam.

Favorite Reads Photo Bookmark: Thank the teacher for making reading fun with a bookmark that lists your child’s new favorite titles.

Happy Travels Car Sachet: Stuffed with a sweet scent, this little luxury makes a great gift for a teacher who may be hitting the road this summer.

Painted Thank-You Mug: With the stroke of a paint pen made for pottery, kids can turn an ordinary mug into a useful keepsake.

Fun Fingerprint Stationery: Let teachers know how they made a big impression with a set of (truly) hand-printed cards and envelopes. Bundled with stamps, this one-of-a-kind gift will make summer correspondence even more fun.

From the Whole Class – Sow Giving Tree or Give a Crate (or a Barrel!) of Bulbs: Surround a potted plant with a grouping of card stock envelopes shaped like flowers, or pack up a gardening kid for an all-natural way to say thanks for helping kids thrive.
