Teacher Appreciation: You Blow Us Away!

As I’ve mentioned before I am the “Teacher Appreciation Person” (not the official name, I’m guessing) for the PTO at my kids’ school.  This means that several times throughout the year I make a little something for each of the 96 teachers and staff members there.  This usually coincides with a holiday (see my Fall one here).    It also means that I need to so a little something for EACH DAY of Teacher Appreciation Week which, at our school, starts today.

The next few posts will be me sharing what I did.  I realize most of you won’t be needing to make 96 things but perhaps it will inspire you to think of something for your child’s teacher.  You can also use these ideas as “thank yous” for anyone!

Now, without further ado, my first contribution this week:

It’s fun.  It’s cheerful.  It expresses appreciation.  It can be put together on an assembly line.  Check, check, check and check!
I’m thinking you can probably break it down and figure out what I used but just in case here are the supplies:
  • clear party favor bags
  • variety of bubble gum (got this all in the candy aisle of WalCrap)
  • twine or ribbon to tie the bag closed
  • tag punch (or just cut the tags into rectangles)
  • printed tags which I’ve supplied below

Right click, save and print these tags onto an 8.5×11 piece of cardstock.

    love this-i need one more idea for this week and this may be it if i can get to the store :) if not, definitely filing for next year-thanks so much for the printable!

    This is great!
    And also the ‘teacher appreciation’-thing itself is amazing. Teachers and the schools staff need to know once in a while that they’re appreciated and valued.
    We didn’t have this thing in my school-time, but we definetly should have!

    When I print, it is blurry and the “Thank you for everything” can’t be read. It’s not crisp at all. What am I doing wrong? I love the idea.

    This is such a cute printable. I really want to use this but I’m having the same problem as Gina, when I print it it blurry. Can you help me fix the problem? I really want to use this this week!!

    I love the “You Always Blow Us Away” tags! I tried to save them and print as suggested above and the text is blurry. Do you have the images available in a crisper more clear format that I can download?

    Thanks so much!
