Teacher Gift Ideas

Our school’s teacher appreciation week is next week, and before you know it they will be wrapping up another year. Can you believe it’s the end of the school year? Where does the time go? I don’t know about you, but this time of year, I’m looking for some fun and simple DIY ideas to make for the kid’s teachers. I have been searching out some good ideas on Pinterest, and I’ve found a few to share with you. Here’s a collection of some really adorable teacher gifts from other bloggers!:

Does the end of the year make you sad like it does for me? The end of a school year is always worse than the beginning of a new one. I don’t like closing chapters. It’s sad for me to move on. Oh well, enough of my babbling. Let’s check out some fun ideas.
