Teacher Appreciation Gift

Let's show our teachers we appreciate them!
May 2 ~ May 6 is Teacher Appreciation week.
If the teachers in your area have had it rough like they have here in the Bay Area of California, let's show them a little love!
What teacher these days couldn't use, and wouldn't appreciate a small token of gratitude and appreciation from our children?!
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we put on our budget savvy thinking caps and came up with a simple, inexpensive gift!
These are the supplies you will need:

Cookies {Dollar Store cookies left over from our Easter Party}

Coffee mug {found our at our local Grocery Outlet for 99 cents!}

Jelly Bellies - Jelly Beans {found ours at our local Grocery Outlet for $2.00 since they are "Flops"}
Scallop paper punch. {we used 2 inch punch}
Ribbon and Cello wrap {not pictured}

Free,printable and you can edit these, Teacher Appreciation tags, please go here

Assemble your gift:
Print and cut out the tags. Attach tag to cookie pop with double sided tape. Pour Jelly Bellies into the coffee mug. Tie ribbon on to coffee mug handle. Tie up with Cello wrap, additional ribbon and hang tag!

Your child's teacher(s) will be thrilled and possibly noticeably moved when they receive your child's homemade, from the heart, Homespun With Love gift!
We hope we have inspired you to show the teachers in your life some appreciation!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

May He grant you according to your heart's desire,
And fulfill all your purpose.
Psalm 20:4

Homespun With Love
