Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week and I’m very fond of teachers and all of their hard work! My entire family is in education and I know first hand how hard they work to teach, nurture and inspire young minds. I love Aubrey’s preschool and adore her teachers, so I want to make sure we show them just how much we appreciate them next week.
I wanted a non-edible gift for one of the days and thought a simple bouquet of flowers would be perfect.
First, I rounded up some supplies.
I bought several packages of ABC magnets a while back at the dollar spot at Target (I knew I’d find something to use them for eventually). I have tons of mason jars and decided to use those as the containers. I needed something to put in the center to hold water and the flowers so I went on a hunt to find a small narrow container. The kids got bubbles in their Easter baskets and they happened to be the perfect size, I just peeled off the label.
I placed the bubble container in the center and stuffed the magnets around it. Next, I filled the container with water and added the flowers.
Finally, I added a bow and a darling “Thank You” tag from DimplePrints. You can download their free teacher printables here.
A sweet and simple thank you to let Aubrey’s teachers know how much we appreciate all they do! With an added bonus, they can use the magnets in the classroom once the flowers are gone. 🙂
