Teacher Appreciation Pins

Pin It!
 

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a few great ideas via Pinterest to celebrate teachers. My boys are not yet in school, but knowing many moms and teachers myself, I saw some true creative gratefulness emerge.

One of my favorite ideas was the "Thanks for helping me grow" flower pot. Not only is this a beautiful spring-time craft, but it also celebrates your favorite teacher.

Quick and easy, this summer getaway pin is sure to inspire relaxation for those who've worked hard molding little minds.

My friend, Jen, made these letter magnet flower vases. She found the letters for very cheap at her local Walmart.

If you are feeling especially crafty (and have the time), consider this School Supplies "Cake." Useful and pleasing to the eye, you can probably even get the most tenured teacher to smile!

A quick Pinterest search for teacher gift brings up a huge stash of pins perfect for the occasion. Whether you want something quick, simple, and cheap or rather elaborate, you can find the perfect fit.

For my 30s Bucket List, one of my tasks is to send something to a teacher who inspired me. I plan to send one of these pins to Mrs. Claire, my 4th grade teacher. I remember surpassing her shoe size at that young age and always admiring her pure JOY! Her smile and laugh were infectious.

Do you have a favorite teacher story? What do you think would be the perfect pin to honor him or her? Follow us over on our pin boards: Samantha here or Chicago Parent here.
