When I think on the good things in my life, one of the things high on the top of my list is caretakers who care for our kids. There are club leaders, babysitters, teachers, and caretakers who help our family with child care at various times throughout the month. One of the things I’m very thankful for is the love they show our kids. Tuesday, May 3, 2016 is National Teacher Appreciation Day. In honor of teachers and other caretakers, here I’m sharing 24 Ways to Encourage Teachers and some simple Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas.
Portable Encouragement and Inspiration
The cards are easy to print, cut, hole punch and gift to Teachers and child caretakers. You can laminate the cards for extra durability. There are 24 Inspiring Quotes and Scriptures. Just print and use the ones that best suit your needs. I printed out our cards out and attached them to a key ring for easy reference. Their compact size makes them perfect for portable encouragement throughout the day.
Some of my favorite sayings and verses from this bundle:
- It always seems impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mandela
- A woman is like a tea bag, you never know how strong it is until it is in hot water. – Eleanor Roosevelt
- Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. – C. S. Lewis
- Above all else, guard your heart for everything you do flows from it. – Proverbs 4:23
- You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
- For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self discipline – 2 Timothy 1:7
Teachers Make an Impact
Our eldest attends preschool two days a week and we just celebrated his 6th Birthday. After my son blew out the candles, my husband asked him to tell us about one thing he learned this year and he said, “To be honorable.” Now, we talk about this concept in our home, but in a parent teacher meeting with his preschool teacher she told us how she was going to tell the children a story about being honorable. I know that her story made a profound impact on my son’s heart.
Teachers really do make a difference. And I’m so thankful for how they love on our kids.
Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas
I created two different teacher appreciation gifts with these 24 Encouraging Cards. The first is a”coffee lover’s gift” and the second is a”beauty inspired” gift. I found some new Extra® 35-stick packs at Kroger and thought they would make the perfect focal point for these Teacher Appreciation Gifts. The Extra® 35-stick packs have a durable, recycled packaging that includes more gum than the regular 15 stick packs. Plus, they’re convenient to keep and split between your desk and your purse and come in fresh flavors like Spearmint and Polar Ice®.
Materials for a “Coffee Lover’s Teacher’s Gift”
- One new Extra® Gum Spearmint 35-stick package
- One portable Coffee Mug with Lid (tumbler)
- One Package of Coffee
- One Package of Lip Balm or wax lipstick
- One Chocolate Bar
This Coffee Lover’s Teacher’s Gift is perfect for the coffee-loving teacher or caretaker.
Materials for a “Beauty Inspired Teacher’s Gift”
- One new Extra® Gum Polar Ice 35-stick package
- One Beauty Bag or Small Clutch
- One Package of Makeup Remover – travel size
- One Beauty Treatment Peel Off Mask
- One Beauty Treatment Facial Scrub
Our family is incredibly thankful for all that teacher’s do to enrich and enhance our lives and I look forward to giving our teachers these gifts on National Teacher Appreciation Day.
