28 Crafts for Kids to Make for Teacher Appreciation Week

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,
Teacher Appreciation Book and Cookies

During the school year, your teacher spends more time with you than anyone else, making sure that you understand the material, checking in on your home life, and ensuring that you're happy. For this, you are indebted to the men and women who spend their lives serving our youth. While they should be appreciated daily, there is a week dedicated to the wonderful teachers of the world, Teacher Appreciation Week. Take advantage of this week to really let your teacher know how much you appreciate him and all that he does for you by making homemade gifts for teachers.

Before you go run to gather all of your craft supplies, though, there are a few things you should know about Teacher Appreciation Week. First of all, yes, your teacher may adore you, but what is she going to do with a photo of you? Instead of doodling her a picture or framing your smiling face, consider what might be useful for her. Perhaps she needs a pencil holder to help organize her desk or a cute tote to carry her books. A drawing is going to be tossed, but a lovely vase that can decorate her room for years to come will be forever treasured, and every time she looks at the vase, she'll remember you.

There are other fun homemade gifts for teachers on this list that would perfectly accompany a gift card. Any of the snacks and treats are sweet reminders of your adoration for your teacher and would be very appreciated tied together with money to your teacher's favorite coffee shop. In this list of 28 Crafts for Kids to Make for Teacher Appreciation Week, there are projects that both allow you to show your artistic abilities and will be useful for teachers.

Homemade gifts for teachers are extremely meaningful, just be sure that it's something that you know your teacher will love. If your educator is a chocolate lover, give him a special sweet treat. If she's always handing out special treats to the class, return the favor by presenting her with a DIY Bumble Bee Teacher Gift Bag. No matter what your teacher needs or likes, you are sure to find the perfect craft to make for Teacher Appreciation Week in this list.

Homemade Gifts for Teachers

Giant Goody Pencil

Just because a gift is homemade does not mean that it isn't fabulous. There are some wonderful homemade gifts for teachers here that are quite valuable, sweet, and worthwhile. Don't waste your time making homemade gifts for teachers that will end up in the trash can. Instead, make something that you know your teacher will love.

Teacher Appreciation Ideas

Paper Bag Apples

Help your teacher decorate her classroom for years to come with these awesome teacher appreciation ideas. You may not realize it, but decorating a classroom is quite the expensive feat, and if you help out, your teacher will be very appreciative. Make a project that is presentable, timeless, and useful like a classroom clock. Come back to visit your teacher in 10 years, and you'll find that same clock occupying her desk and keeping her on track.

Gift Ideas for Teacher that She Can Use

Lemon Sugar Scrub

A gift is most meaningful when it is personalized for the recipient. If there is something that you know your teacher could use, give it to him for Teacher Appreciation Week. The best gift idea for Teacher Appreciation Week is the item that's been missing in your classroom all year. Does your teacher drink his coffee out of a styrofoam cup every day? Make him a personalized mug.
