One of the best parts of being a teacher is receiving hand made kindergarten teacher gift crafts from your students. Really, receiving hand made teacher’s gifts from students of any age is great. But there is something special about kindergarten teacher gift crafts that come from little ones just learning all sorts of new skills. They are unique and have a cute quality about them that help you to always remember your special students who began their educational journey with you! Here are some ideas for kindergarten teacher gift crafts that parents can help their child make for their teacher.
One great kindergarten teacher gift crafts is inexpensive and can be made even by the littlest hands. Buy some clear compartmentalized boxes at your local dollar store and then have your child glue on decorations like colored stones, beads, sequins, or anything else that might strike their fancy. Fill the compartments with teacher supplies like paper clips, push pins, rubber bands, and such. Your child’s teacher will love such a useful gift!
Everyone loves treats – especially teachers! Help your child bake up some cookies or other treats like trail mix or candies. Find a decorative tin or have your child decorate a pre-purchased container. You can also include a small gift like a special pen or a funny magnet. Teachers don’t usually have time to bake or make something special for themselves, so they will really appreciate this kind of kindergarten teacher gift crafts.
Why not try to organize the whole class when making kindergarten teacher gift crafts. If your child’s teacher likes to cook, he or she will certainly appreciate a recipe book. Enlist the help of the students’ parents and have them write a recipe onto a piece of paper then have the child decorate the page. Then put it together in book form to present to the teacher. It will take some work to do this “on the sly”, but you can pull it off with a little creativity!
Modeling clay can also be great when making kindergarten teacher gift crafts. Have your child mold the clay into a bowl and carve in decorations on the side. Include a special message from your child like “I love you” or “The Best Teacher in the World”. Then bake in your oven on a low temperature to harden the clay. Apply a clear glaze and you’re all set with a great and memorable teacher’s gift!
Most teachers really appreciate kindergarten teacher gift crafts much more than purchased items. Just be creative and let your child lead the way to make the gift unique and special!
