You may or may not know, but Teacher Appreciation Week is right here on the horizon, my friends. The schools in our area are honoring teachers this very week. And, as some of you may remember from my previous post…I’ve had a lot of time to sit around lately and fiddle around on my computer. (Standing around in my kitchen, cooking and shooting photos has been strictly prohibited, I’m afraid.)
And so, in place of a new recipe post today I have some cute little printables made especially for honoring the teachers in your life. If there are no teachers in your life, don’t stress yourself out about it. I have new recipe coming up tomorrow, just for you. Hope you’ll join me.
Now, for those of you that have teachers waiting to be appreciated…let’s talk Teacher Appreciation, shall we?
Some of the printables are big, in case you want to tie them on to a really, really big gift (like a boat, or a motorcycle) that you got for your teacher. (That was REALLY nice of you, by the way.) There are also some printables that leave space for your child to write a note or two.
I made a few smaller choices that would be fun as cupcake toppers, or just to stick on packages. I thought it would be cute to have the kids write on the tags that say “You Are…”, filling in some of their teachers best qualities and traits. Please be aware that if your child writes something on these tags like “You Are…really weird” or “You are…super lame” it might be best to throw the tags in the trash. Thanks for your cooperation.
It’s also fun to make some cute paper cones, stuff them with goodies and paste the little printables all over them.
All you need is some scapbook paper (look for the square sheets), these printables, a glue stick or a hot glue gun, and some treats. Let me show you how easy it is!
Fold the bottom corner of the paper up several inches.
Fold it again
and again, making a crease each time you fold.
Apply some glue to the remaining edge of the paper, fold it over and press it with your fingers to attach it to the back of the cone.
Pour in a few treats
and apply some glue to the back of your printable of choice.
Fold the top of the cone over, cover it with the printable and press it along the edges to seal the package.
There are so many cute scrap book paper options to choose from (I found mine at Hobby Lobby), and you can put just about any fun little treat inside the cone. You could make Crunchy Candy Bar Caramel Corn, White Chocolate Popcorn, or Homemade Caramels…just to name a few. Cookies would also be great if you were to wrap each one in plastic wrap so they don’t dry out. Grandmas Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lemon White Chocolate Cookies or Chocolate Rolo Stuffed Cookies are all fabulously tasty.
Hope some of you enjoy these printables! I had a fun time making them.
Have a great day, and come on back tomorrow….a new recipe lays in wait, just for you. 🙂
