Teacher Appreciation Day is May 8th so we had to make something for my daughters two preschool teachers. She really loves her teachers and well we all know that teachers do so much and get so little for all they do so I LOVE the idea of having a whole day where we can show these awesome people some love and appreciation.
I have to say that I looked all over the internet for inspiration on what to make for these two special teachers and was very surprised that no one had ever done a teacher themed picture frame. I found lots of cute little gifts to give but I wanted to do something different and special so I decided to make a frame and put a Thank You picture of my daughter in the frame. I figure they can always reuse the frame if they want, but they will know who made it and how much my daughter LOVES them.
I did have to help a bit with this frame. The ruler around the edge I did, it was just a little too complicated for my daughter to do yet, but she was able to paint and decorate the frames which was way more fun than doing the ruler part anyway (hey why do I get all the not so fun parts?).
Wood Frame (at Michaels for $.99)
Hot Glue Gun
First you need to paint your entire frame black, we painted the front and back black.
Now tape off where you want to do your ruler, and then paint it yellow
Using a measuring tape mark off where your numbers will go on your ruler and mark the ruler lines. Using your sharpie draw all lines and write the numbers
Glue all four of your crayons on to the frame then glue your apple and star. Now if you got foam letter stickers just peel off the backs and stick them on or use your hot glue gun to glue those suckers on too.
Now just get a picture of your child with a THANK YOU note and put it in your frame.
I am sure any teacher would love to get this cute thank you gift. I can’t wait for my daughter to give these to her teachers.
Question of the Day:
Are you a teacher? What was your favorite gift you ever got?
