Teacher appreciation ideas: Fun crafts to do with kids

TBH it’s hard to put into words how much we really, really, really appreciate the amazing teachers who spend all day inspiring our children. Teacher Appreciation Day is Tuesday, May 9, and we’re looking for teacher appreciation ideas that are a mix of fun, useful, and from the heart. So we’ve gathered a few ideas for crafty gifts to make with a little help from the kids.

Our favorite teacher appreciation ideas, below.

Teacher appreciation idea: mini macramé hanger with DIY pinch pot and air plant

THANK A TEACHER WITH A CUTE HANGING PLANT

A mini macramé hanger is an easy, cool way to display cute little things, like our DIY pinch pots. And you can drop in a tiny, nearly maintenance-free air plant to complete the adorableness.

Teacher appreciation ideas: Felt gift card holders

SHOW SOME LOVE WITH A GIFT CARD

Ten out of ten teachers agree: Gift cards rock. And it’s easy to make one for spa treatments, coffee, or school supplies more personal with a handmade felt holder. Our how-to instructions include two templates and a bunch of ideas for designs. Maybe try something in school colors?

Teacher appreciation ideas: Hand-stamped tea towel used to wrap a present

WRAP THINGS UP WITH A DECORATED TEA TOWEL

Tea towels aren’t just for cleaning up messes. Decorated with sponges or rubber stamps and some acrylic paint, they’re great for giving—tied up with twine as a set—or for wrapping other gifts. Best of all, even the littlest students can help make them pretty.

Teacher appreciation ideas: "For a great teacher" DIY zine

PERSONALIZE A DIY “GREAT TEACHER” ZINE

Hallmart Artist Amber G. designed a miniature zine with spaces for kids to say what they love about their favorite teachers. Just print, trim, fold, and fill it out. Teachers love handwritten messages from their students, and this hits all the right notes.
