Where Would We Be Without Teachers?

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I wanted to repost this 🙂

In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, I wanted to share a quick and easy teacher gift idea with you today!

My sister is a 1st grade teacher and because of this, I have a BIG RESPECT for all teachers! Too often, their hard work goes un-noticed!

I always enjoy coming up with a creative gift to thank my kids’ teachers. However, this Teacher Appreciation Week, time was an issue so I had to  settle for simple gift cards instead. I still wanted to make it special so I decided on making a fun gift card holder to go with the gift cards.

I found these adorable little buckets and shredded paper in the party section of the store. I love how the grocery bag looking filler paired with the bucket gave it a kind of “rustic” look.

    1. Yes, thank you! We live on Oahu and the volcanoes are actually on the Big Island called Hawaii. (It’s confusing bc there is an island called Hawaii and yet the entire chain of islands is called Hawaii too.) It’s pretty devastating what is going on over there 😦 But, here on Oahu, we are just getting the VOG (volcanic ash which makes like a foggy effect.) Messes with you like allergies 🤧😷 🌋

  1. you are so right! People don’t realize how hard it is to be a good teacher. I volunteer every chance I get to help with my kids classes. ( my older two wont let me anymore) I am so exhausted by the time I get home it’s as if I ran a marathon. I get offended for teachers when I hear people say ” they just babysit” . This is so not true! Great post!

    1. Thank you! I agree-volunteering in the classroom definitely is eye opening! You get a real feel for what goes on in the classroom! And, it doesn’t stop at home! My sister is “teaching” even in the summer bc she is always planning. She even FaceTimed her class from the top of Kokohead when she came to visit me in Hawaii! She sincerely loves each one of her students!
