The school year is soon coming to a close, and we’ve been on the hunt for some fun ways to say “thank you” to the teachers who encourage our kids to love learning all school year long.
This Ice Cream themed teacher’s gift is the perfect way to send that special teacher sailing into summer vacation. Malia of Yesterday on Tuesday used our Heritage Hill Jars to put together this ice cream themed gift. Plus, she has free printables so you can put this gift together in a snap!
Dig in the Dirt
Get your kids digging in the dirt and make a Terrarium for that special teacher. It’s a low maintenance gift that any Teacher can enjoy at home, or in their classroom when school starts again. Use a jar you have on hand, or chose from one of these. A little gnome or kid painted rock can transform the terrarium into a customized garden that sums up a year of thanks. Get step-by-step on how to make a teacher terrarium here. If you have multiple teachers to gift too, a smaller planting project, might be the way to go.
If your kid’s teachers like to grill? Then make him/her some Spice rubs. This project is so easy the kids can do it. Have them make a double batch and your pantry will be stocked for grill season too.Let There be Light
Take the kids on a nature hunt in your back yard and make a Mason jar lantern for that teacher that plans to hang out on their back porch all summer. Fill it with Citronella to keep those pesky bugs away!
Make Some Jam
Whip up a batch of your favorite jam and have the kids make some homemade labels. Need some jam recipe ideas? You’re sure to find something in our recipe file.
