Teacher Appreciation Day….

Okay…I may be a little behind on this one ladies! Last week all over blogland there were posts on tons on 'Teacher Appreciation' crafts. I am kind of confused…apparently the whole week is Teacher Appreciation week but yesterday was Teacher Appreciation day??

Well, I decided to do a little something for Christopher’s two teachers. I had wanted to try a new recipe too...that being said, I made some sweet treats. I made Apple Snackin’ cake….something I saw recently on an episode of Kitchen Boss. It looked so yummy and it contained apples….get it, teachers, apples??  In addition to that, I made my good old stand-by MUGS…LOL! Then I thought it was perfect, some sweet snacks and a mug for a nice cup of coffee to go along with them : )

Of course I needed to make a cute little ‘apple’ gift bag and card to go along with gifts. Oh, and I had to decorate the bakery box too!! Since I didn’t have too much time, I had to keep it simple.

Here is what I came up with…

Gift bag….

Card (inside and out)….

Treat box….


The entire ensemble….

When I gave the teachers' their presents, they were so thankful. They did not even know it was Teacher Appreciation Week….LOL! It makes it all worth it when you know someone really appreciates your hard work.

Until tomorrow….

Gah. I envy your craftiness! That's adorable and I'm sure they were so impressed with your kindness! I made the teachers homemade choco chip cookies. I bought Paula Deen cookie tins and matching Thank you cards at Michaels...they turned out well. On the thank you cards I made an ingredient list. Made with 3/4 c. of love, 1 tsp drama, and a whole lot of appreciation, etc. Cutesy enough for me. LOL!

Great job, Jenn!

That is so awesome!! I love everything, especially the mug, it's too cute!
We had no idea it was teacher appreciation week either! I don't know why NY doesn't celebrate teachers this week! so silly, I wish I thought to give them a little something, your gifts are wonderful and thoughtful!

You are so thoughtful, and so creative! What great gifts! I didn't even realize it was Teacher Appreciation Week...our old daycare at least reminded us.

I never have any ideas as to what to get the kids' teachers. I'll be picking your brain this Christmas for sure!
