{Friday Favorites} Teacher Appreciation Crafts

Welcome to the first issue of
{Friday Favorites}

Since Teacher Appreciation week is May 2nd to the 6th along with the fact that I am a Second Grade Teacher, I felt it was only appropriate to start this issue off with Teacher Appreciation Crafts.  I will be linking up some fabulous crafts/printables/ideas here from the many blogs I follow.  On a more personal note, if you have a child in school, please take the time to send in a little thank you note to your child's teacher.  Trust me, a beautifully written thank you note is always appreciated and in many cases kept only to be pulled out during those days when it has rained for two weeks straight, a holiday is coming up, and the moon is full!  Those teachers out there know what I am talking about :)

Without further adieu... Let me introduce you to some fantastic Teacher Appreciation Ideas! 

I absolutely love this card especially the place for the gift card.  Yes, most teachers do love their coffee!

I plan on giving this out to my teacher friends at the beginning of next year as a welcome back gift complete with the clipboard.  Maybe use a little Mod Podge, add some ribbon and then voila!

I love that you can personalize the print with the teacher's name :)

Come on... what teacher doesn't love candy and cute cookies!

This print is so versatile because you could use it as a card or a tag for a bag.  I love the polka-dots and the simple print.

I would definitely never say no to more pencils.  Seriously, I really think my students eat them:)

More candy and a cute little saying, enough said!

The Happy Scraps - Pencil Bouquet
A pencil bouquet with adorable flower toppers, so stinkin' cute!

I know it's not really a teacher appreciation gift but I know that anything that keeps me organized is always helpful and appreciated.

I want to send a huge thank you to all the creative people out there creating some fantastic crafts/printables/etc and for appreciating your child's teacher!

~If you would like your idea/printable to be featured for this issue of Teacher Appreciation please leave a comment linking to your blog and I will add you to my post asap.

~Also I am looking for a FREE download for Keep Calm and Teach on.  Does anyone know if this is available?  If you have made one please leave a comment so I can add you to my post.

Thank you!
