Whatever Wednesday ~ Teacher Appreciation

The week of May 14th was Teacher Appreciation week for my kids. I agonized over this for weeks before finally making a decision that week on what to do:

I got the idea from one of my favorite crafty blogs, Tatertots & Jello. She had the printable already designed all I had to do was print it out:) Easy peasy!

I bought some $10 gift cards to Jamba Juice and added some M&M’s to the bag for a little something extra. The cups I bought at Walmart for $2. I was hoping to buy ones with a lid and a straw, but those ones were $4 each! Yikes! I’m not that rich! I probably spent way too much money on this as it was! Next year, I’m going to do something more simple, definitely!! But I really liked this idea and the teachers appreciated it! Jonas has one teacher and an aid so I bought two for him to give out and Brynnan has a teacher and 2 aids so that totals 5!! Next year I hope it will only be 2 teachers and 1 aid total!:)

They had their last week of school and I made their teachers a scrapbook for the year. For Brynnan’s teachers I made a book of the different celebrations throughout the year:

I bought the albums on Pick Your Plum for a really good deal!! Only $5 each!! and they came with 20 pages. I LOVE Pick Your Plum! They do a daily deal and it’s usually really cheap! the only thing that gets ya is the shipping, but I bought 4 of these albums and the shipping was only $3.95 so still a great deal!!

Here are some of the pages from Brynnan’s album. I didn’t make the pages, I got them for free when I was into digital scrapbooking a couple years ago. I think this is the only page that I made myself, the rest were someone else.


Field Day was the last week of school.

Celebrating a girls birthday.

I forgot to take pictures of Jonas’ books before giving them to his teachers. I was in a hurry…

This kid is so hilarious!! Jonas’ teacher said this was the perfect page to remember him by!:)

They all wanted to do a funny face as well as a smiley one. It was funny and cute!:)

And here’s their funny class picture. I really LOVE Mrs. Bair! She’s an awesome teacher! She was so supportive of Jonas and everything that he needed. It was a wonderful year!! Brynnan has her next year and I’m glad.

This was a fun class and Jonas really loved being a part of it. When I asked him who his favorite friend from the class was he said, “All of them!” They were all really sweet and friendly with Jonas and they all loved him! It’s good to know that kids love him. I worry about that guy!!

You know what I realized as I was picking out pictures to post on here? I didn’t do a page of Jonas!!! My own kid, and I didn’t do a page for him!! I guess he got the first day of school page, but I had taken a cute silly picture of him and a cute smiley one too. Oh, well! lol

The scrapbooks were a lot of fun to make! I’m hoping to do the same thing for their teachers next year, but I want to make some new pages so I need to get started on that now since I’m such a procrastinator!!

Well, Thanks for stopping by today!! What did you make or do for Teacher appreciation and end of the year gifts? I hope you had fun coming up with your ideas!!

  1. Sooooooooooo cute, Megs!!! Um, I didn’t do ANYTHING!! Hahaha! I’m a jerk. But Dylan’s teacher doesn’t deserve anything, in my opinion. Except for a slap across the face. 🙂

  2. cute scrapbooks!!! man, I wouldve just done the books and nothing else. i ended up just making sugar cookies and having the kids decorate them. buses for the bus driver and ABC/123 and apple cookies for her teacher.

  3. This is awesome Megan. What a great present. I love the Jamba idea and the scrapbooks look great. You are such a great mom!!
