Teachers put so much into teaching our kids, why not show extra thanks during the month of Thanksgiving? Today I have a list of Thanksgiving gifts for teachers your kids will love to help put together for their own teacher. Kids also benefit by learning early how to express gratitude to the people who do a lot for them!
Thanksgiving Gifts For Teachers
Parents and kids traditionally give teacher gifts at Christmas and when school lets out for the summer. But it’s also nice to express gratitude to our teachers during the month of November. Here are some ideas that your kids will love to give.
Thank You Cards
There’s absolutely nothing that says you have to spend any money on a Thanksgiving gift for your child’s teacher. In fact, it’s a simple handmade or handwritten thank you card that can mean the most. Cut hearts out of construction paper in fall colors, and let your child use them to write a heartfelt note to his teacher. Any teacher will love this, and your child will learn valuable lessons about gratitude.
A Thanksgiving Bouquet
Flowers have a way of sending just the write message for a lot of occasions. Cut or purchase a bouquet of flowers in your favorite fall blooms. One large bouquet divides easily into several smaller bouquets for your children’s teachers. Put them in small mason jars for simple but meaningful presentation.
A bar of handmade soap is something any teacher can use. Even if you’ve never made soap before, don’t worry because it’s easy. Visit Michaels for a soap making kit you and the kids can work on together. Tie your bars of finished soap with a raffia bow and add a pretty fall leaf.
These days, teachers have to wear their ID badge at all times. So a lanyard is always a great gift idea for a teacher! A fun assortment of lanyards lets your child’s teacher mix things up by choosing a different one depending on the day, the season, or the holiday. Let your child help choose a fun lanyard she thinks her teacher will love.
