Teacher appreciation card with paper tulips made y student

Teacher Appreciation Week is this week at my sons school. Instead of a real bouquet of flowers, my son made a paper flower card. The school suggests a theme for each day of the week to help base gifts on. The list is as follows:

Monday: Small plant or flower

Tuesday: A small sweet treat

Wednesday: A note from the student.

Thursday: Gift card (for example a $5 iTunes gift card)

Friday: A classroom supply (glue, hand sanitizer, markers, etc)

Teacher appreciation card made from paper flowers - alternative to real flowers

I figured my sons teacher would be receiving lots of real flowers and plants. And while yes, they are beautiful, there might be a different approach my son and I could take. I decided we could make a card with flowers on it. It’s still a bouquet of flowers, just not living. This saves a bit of money but still shows appreciation to his teacher. It was also a good sit down hands on project for me and my son to do together.

Each tulip opens up revealing a short message inside. My son wrote 5 reasons why he enjoys his teachers class. I made sure to keep the messages unique to her class to get him brainstorming. He’s in first grade so “it is fun” could be a common response. This was a great time to talk about specific things he enjoys about first grade and acknowledge his teacher make those events happen.

    This is a great idea, I think I may do it with my second grader!

  2. I figured my children instructor would get loads of genuine blossoms and plants. Keeping in mind yes, they are wonderful, there may be an alternate approach my child and I could take. I chose we could make a card with blooms on it. It’s still a bundle of blossoms, just not living. This spares a touch of cash yet at the same time demonstrates thankfulness to his educator. It was likewise a decent take a seat hands on undertaking for me and my child to do together.
