Pinterest-Inspired Teacher Appreciation Week - Day 1 and 2

It's Teacher Appreciation Week.  I hope it didn't sneak up on you.  It's the week where we tell those teachers in our lives "thanks for putting up with my kid for more hours a day than I do and possibly teaching them a thing or two along the way".  And, of course, we found all of our ideas on Pinterest!  Why have an original idea anymore when you can just search for a pin???

Bean has two WONDERFUL AMAZING teachers this year.  I am not just kissing up when I say that if we get teachers like these two all during Bean's schooling years, we will be the luckiest folks around.  They put so much time and love into the kids in the class.  I am already dreading saying "see you later" in a few weeks.

Since we have such grand teachers this year, we wanted to let them know how much we really do appreciate them so we decided to give them a gift each day this week.  This was an ambitious plan but two days in and we are still on track.  Let's pray that we don't get lazy, sit on the couch, feed the kid potato chips for dinner, and not put our gifts together.

On Monday, Bean took her teachers bamboo plants in really cute painted ladybug planters.  We lucked up and found these little ladybugs at WalMart.  I'd love to show you a picture but even though I got off the couch to print off the cute printable from LivingLocurto.com, I failed to take a picture of the end result.  But you can find this adorable printable here.

Ain't it cute!

Yes, it is.

Tuesday Bean took a wrapped Hershey bar to not only her two kindergarten teachers, she also took them to her music, art and after school teachers.  I found the editable printable at ItsWrittenOnTheWall on etsy.com.

This was so easy to edit and put together.  These turned out really well.  We think we'll make some more and take them into the front office for more brownie points!  Woot woot!

Tomorrow Bean is taking...I can't tell you yet!  Check back to see.
