It’s that time of year again when mothers everywhere pull their hair out trying to come up with the perfectly themed, cute, yet useful teacher appreciation gift for each day of the week. It’s a precarious balance that requires hours of thought and preparation and then must be hand delivered so it will arrive pristine rather that pulled out of the bottom of your kids backpack in a wad. In truth it’s a mom competition for the title of teacher’s pet. It’s intense at my kids school- I kid you not So this year I have the perfect strategy-the strategy to end all other strategies. Are you ready for it… I’m dropping out of the race. That’s right. I’m giving an average gift. The teachers in my kid’s life are getting a bunch of those fancy schmancy expensive pencils that are on every teachers list. It may not knock their socks off but it will be useful.
Of course, average in my life means I have to include a cute card. I can’t quite quit my overachiever status cold turkey. I designed this little pencil shaped card for teacher appreciation or a last day of school thank you. You’ll find the files in my Etsy shop here.
You’ll enjoy the process of making a card and your teacher will get a cute card with a sweet message from a student. It’s a win win and you can decide what gift goes along with it.
And one bonus tip! Create mini chalkboard tags by drawing your tag with a white pen on black paper. You can also print the tag on your home printer. To give it a chalkboard look, dip a sponge in some white ink and lightly swipe white ink across the tag in a few places.
