Check out these first day of school teacher gifts. Making a fun little gift for back to school will let teachers know that you appreciate all they do for your child.
First Day of School Teacher Gifts
It’s that time of year….everyone is getting ready for back to school. Little Man is so excited he’ll be starting Kindergarten this year and, to be honest, mommy’s pretty stoked about it too! Plus, Miss Jellybean will be starting preschool 3 days a week and this momma will actually have some free time!
Sending your toddler off to preschool is quite a transition from the fun days of staying at home….but let’s face it…we both need a little break. So for 3 days a week we’ll get 3 hours of peace….for me and her! I mean really….how would you like spending 24/7/365 with your mom? I’d go nuts too….so it’s really for Miss Jellybean’s sanity that she’s starting preschool this year! 😉 At least that’s what I’ll tell myself to keep away any mommy guilt!!
With all of the back to school excitement comes a bit of apprehension as the kids get new teachers and classroom friends. One way to combat this anxiety is to get your child excited about giving the teacher a gift on the first day of school. Gift giving is a way to show your child that it’s a joyous occasion.
We’ve been preparing for back to school every day for the last few weeks (make sure you check out my 10 tips for preparing your toddler for preschool). From deciding what Little Man is going to take for lunch (there’s a nut free class so we need some nut free lunch ideas) and he can be quite the picky eater so I found some simple school lunch recipes even he will eat.
So this weekend the kids and I are picking out a simple back to school gift to make for their teachers. Just a little something that says “You’re Awesome” and “Thanks for Everything You’re Going to Do”. Everyone likes to feel appreciated and by offering a little token of gratitude I know we can make their teachers’ day!
