The next few weeks are full of special occasions! We just celebrated Easter yesterday, Earth Day is April 22nd, Teacher Appreciation Week is May 5-9th and Mother’s Day is May 12th. And just in case anyone is curious, Josh’s birthday is right there in the middle, on May 6th! (11 years old – oh my gosh!!!) I think with the late Easter this year everything else has just snuck up on me!
So if you are anything like me, now that the Easter baskets are put away, you are scrambling for a gift for the teachers. Requirements: Cute, fun, useful, delicious is always a plus and of course, I can’t spend a bundle. (Although, if I could I would! Teachers are totally worth it!) Josh has lots of teachers (Science, Math, English, his Resource teacher and not to mention therapists!) so all week I will be sharing some of our gifts! The hard part will be deciding who gets what!
This first teacher appreciation gift is one of my favorites! One of Josh’s favorite things to do when we are at World Market is to pick out soda bottles. They have so many varieties of ‘old time’ soda and fun flavors. While we were there the other week stocking up on some fun flavors for our Easter celebration, I had an idea. We should take a pack of soda to one of Josh’s teachers! I asked Josh what he thought and he loved the idea. He was so excited to pick out a nice variety for his teacher.
What is a good teacher appreciation gift without a fun pun? We came up with You are ‘SO-DA’ teacher! Cheesy? Check! Awesome? Double check!
I created a quick apple printable and printed it on card stock. Then I made a quick bow (isn’t the ruler ribbon cute?) and attached the tag to a sparkly miniature clothes pin and slipped it to the pack of soda.
You can buy the bottles individually for $1.49 or you can get a pack of six for $8.67.
Cute gift for under $10? Yes!
Want the tag to make the gift yourself? Here you are! Just save it to your computer (chose to have it fill up the page and print at home or take it to your local copy store to have printed on card stock! This will print 2 tags per page!)
Make sure to check back all week for lots of fun teacher appreciation ideas!
(Don’t forget to pin it!)
