Teacher Thank You Gift Wrap

It’s the end of the school year here in South Africa and we are gearing up for an epic summer holiday. It’s going to be hot, it’s going to be fun and it’s going be five weeks long, but before all that happens we get to thank the teacher.

It’s time to stop and say thank you to the people who looked after our kids for the whole year. The teachers who were kind, patient and who encouraged our little ones. The teachers who held hands, kissed scraped knees and said well done, even if it was more done than well.

It’s hard to find the words and ways to express our gratitude when it comes to someone who has taken care of our children. These are the people who they spend a huge part of their day with. It’s one of the most important relationships they’ll have for an entire a year and hopefully a relationship they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.

As we have mentioned before, we love simple gift wrap and this simple, teacher inspired gift wrap is right up our alley. Whatever you have decided to give your child’s teacher, we are sure they’ll really appreciate the message as well.

This is what you need:

A gift, preferably in a box or something that can be shaped into a ball.

Red tissue paper

Green board

Brown board

Sticky tape and scissors

This is what you need to do:

Wrap the gift in the red tissue paper

Draw a green leaf or print one of these printables: green-leaf or leaf-outline

Cut out a leaf

Cut a stalk

Stick the stalk and leaf to get then stick both to the gift  

Wording for the leaves:

This apple is my way of saying thank you for every day.

We love your core values

Grateful to the core

We hope you and the teacher will enjoy this gift wrap idea. You know what they say about an apple a day…it’s really good for you. So get to the core of the matter and say what you want to say. That’s Thank you with a capital T.

Happy wrapping,

Mia & Blair
