Teacher Appreciation Craft

Teachers play a significant role in shaping young minds, and what better way to express our gratitude than through creative and thoughtful crafts? Whether for Teacher’s Day or simply to show appreciation, these teacher craft ideas will make a lasting impression.

One popular teacher craft idea is creating personalized thank-you crafts for teachers. These crafts allow students to showcase their creativity while expressing their gratitude. From handmade cards to decorative bookmarks, the options are endless. Students can incorporate heartfelt messages and unique designs to make each craft memorable.

Another teacher craft idea that is perfect for Teacher Appreciation Day is creating a teacher appreciation project. This project could involve the entire class coming together to create a meaningful gift for their teacher. Students can collaborate on a gratitude jar, where each student writes a thank you note and places it inside. This heartfelt gesture allows teachers to read messages of appreciation whenever they need a boost.

For those who prefer a more hands-on approach, teacher craft ideas can include creating thank-you crafts for teachers in English. Students can craft personalized banners or posters with messages of thanks written in English. This showcases their language skills and adds an international touch to the craft.

Incorporating art into a teacher appreciation craft is a great way to foster creativity and show appreciation for the educators who dedicate their lives to shaping the next generation. By encouraging our kids to participate in these craft activities, we instill a sense of gratitude and respect for their teachers. So, let’s celebrate our teachers and create memorable crafts that express our heartfelt thanks.

Teacher Appreciation Craft

I knew I wanted to do something somewhat easy and used things I already had. I also wanted to do something simple that early elementary-aged kiddos could help with – I didn’t want this to turn into a Mommy craft, and kid watches project.

Supply List

Here is what you will need:

– I love having this stuff at home for projects.

– These were left over from our wedding but another good item to have on hand for projects.

Green paint – we use washable. Always washable.

Flower Pots – I found some Project 62 4-inch stone planters at Target on an end cap (and can’t find them online), but you could easily use something like this or small terra cotta ones and have your child paint them.

Gift Cards – I got two from Target and one from Starbucks. I liked having the cards say Thank You on them for the center of the flowers.

Black Beans – Used in the flower pot to hold the sticks up, and they also look like dirt.

Glue – We used Elmer’s Glue to assemble the flowers and hot glue to attach the sticks and gift cards.

Cups – Used for tracing the center and petals of the flowers. You need two different sizes.


Have the kids paint the popsicle sticks green – make sure you do this first so they have plenty of time to dry.

Next, trace the center of the flower with a water cup – make sure it’s big enough to hold the gift card but not too big proportionally to the flower pot.

Trace the flower pedals using the small end of a plastic cup.

We used two colors per pot; you need eight petals per flower. I did 12 pedals on one page, leaving me enough to do one flower in each color and then mix the colors on the third flower.

Glue the first four pedals down so they make a square.

Fill in the other four pedals in between the first ones.

These are your finished flowers. Let them dry completely before you glue anything else to them.

Use hot glue to attach the green stems and the gift cards. Be careful gluing on the back of the gift card. You don’t want to get it on the magnetic strip, scratch-off, and bar codes.

Fill each pot with black beans and put three flowers in each pot. I had my daughter sign her name under the Starbucks gift card.

Teacher appreciation craft complete and ready to be handed out at school.

It was a simple teacher appreciation craft and easy for us to do with minimal mess, not expensive, and a fun way to spend time together. It’s the very least we can do to show our incredible teachers how much we appreciate all they do for our kiddo.
