Teacher Appreciation Week

This week our school celebrated our teachers with "Teacher Appreciation Week". To make this week extra fun, I created labels with a "theme" for each day. The picture below is pretty self explanatory.

This was such a fun and easy way to bless our teachers this week!

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD the Teacher Appreciation Labels freebie! I printed mine on white cardstock and used a circle punch to cut them out!

I stuffed the goodies into 6x9 clear cello bags (found on eBay). Which, by the way, has been one of the best purchases I've ever made. I use the clear cello bags for everything!

1.) Caution this Bag Contains Energy: I put a mini-diet soda (8 oz), a Caffeinated Crystal Light Drink Mix and a healthy-type bar, like Zone Bars.

2.) Sweets for the Sweet: I used Dark Chocolate Dove candy.  Of course, use your imagination or your teacher's favorite treat!

3.) Emergency Stash: For this bag, I have used multipacks of post-it notes, Sharpies, colored gel pens (red/green), binder clips, highlighters... stuff that teachers seem to always need.

4.) You Were MINT to Teach:  I fill this bag with chewing gum and peppermints.

5.) Orange You Glad You're The Apple of My Eye?:  I use a small mandarin orange and a small apple for this bag.

And there ya go... 5 treat bags for each day of the week.  Plus, this is an easy, cost effective way to bless MORE THAN ONE teacher/staff... especially the teachers/staff members that are often forgotten about - like Librarians, P.E. teachers, School Nurses, Lunchroom Helpers, Specials teachers, etc
