It seems like the school year just started, yet it isn’t that long before it ends and we roll into summer! It is almost time to show your child’s teacher how much you appreciate him or her. As you know, crafting can take some planning, so you should get started early. Teacher’s gifts are some of the most fun to make, because they are colorful and often times involve sweet treats (my favorite kind of craft!). One simple idea that I love is this bouquet with plastic alphabet letters. Isn’t it sweet? Click through the jump to see more fun teacher gift ideas!
