Occasionally Crafty: Teacher Gifts {aka Mom's homework!}

Teacher Gifts {aka Mom's homework!}

I don't know about you craftily inclined folk out there, but when the holidays and other major events roll around, I almost feel obligated to do something cute. I think I do a good job at not going overboard and always try to involve the kids. The end of the school year was different this time because it was our first! But, we also packed up 85% of our belongings last week and I just couldn't do a lot. So with some 'pin'spiration I was was able to do a little crafting with a lot of cuteness!

Check out these cute treat bags for the bus monitor and bus driver! You can find the printable here, and it calls for use of Hershey nuggets, but I couldn't find any. 


Next I needed something for his teacher's aid and another team teacher who my son has absolutely loved. These re-usable cups with single serve lemon{aid}s couldn't be simpler or cuter, and something they will use! Check out the printable here.


Lastly, the truly very important teacher gift. I mean, how do you properly thank the single person who has planned every single lesson, activity, snack, and field trip? I wanted to make something for her, but something that she could use more than once. Then I figured it out. What is one thing that kept her going through the year? Coffee! She always had a mug of coffee in her hand, and who could blame her? I put my new found knitting skills to use and made her a hand made coffee sleeve and put it around an eco cup and included a gift card. I hope she remembers us as she drinks her coffee for her next kindergarten class.


Comment if you are interested in the knit pattern-- it was my first cable knit! So easy and turned out great!

What did you do for your teachers this year?

  1. We had everything packed up, but we have Sammi's teacher's address, so I'll have to send something, but for Christmas, Sammi made a letter h (for her teacher's namer hood) out of crayons glued to lined writing paper and framed in a shadow box type frame. I don't knit, but I do crochet, I'm sure I could figure out an adaptation, that cozy sure is cute!
