It’s more fun at the Back to School Party!
Hello Living Locurto fans! I’m Mariah from Giggles Galore and I’m thrilled to be participating in Amy’s Back to School Party. I’m a huge fan of anything school related and love coming up with new ideas like this Noteworthy Teacher Gift. Maybe it’s because so many of my family members are teachers, but I have a soft spot for creating fun gifts to show my children’s teachers just how much we appreciate everything they do!
I created this simple teacher gift for my kids to give to their new teachers at “Meet the Teacher” night. This is where our kids will get to meet their new teacher, check out their classroom, take a tour of the school and meet new and old friends before the first day of school.
My twin are starting kindergarten this year and knowing that they will get to meet their teacher and see their classroom before the first day of school helps me feel less emotional about my babies going to school.
And this gift is so easy you can put it together in less than 10 minutes. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Colorful Notepad (mine is from the Target Dollar Spot)
- Pen or Pencil
- Gift Card
- Free Printable Noteworthy Teacher Gift Tags
- Notebook Paper Bags
Now that you have everything you need to make your Noteworthy Teacher Gift all you have to do is put it together.
- Download the Free Printable Noteworthy Teacher Gift Tags and print in color on white cardstock or photo paper.
- Use twine to attach the pen or pencil to the notepad.
- We purchased $10 Target gift cards to make our teacher’s gift extra special. Slip the gift card between the pen and the notepad.
- Put the notepad in the notebook paper bag and attach the Noteworthy Teacher Gift Tag with twine.
- Let your child give it to their teacher at meet the teacher or the first day of school.
I also created another version of the Noteworthy Teacher Gift Tags for a more traditional classic school look. Either way these simple teacher gifts are sure to be a hit with your favorite teacher this year!
