DIY Painted Planter Teacher Appreciation Gift with Printable Card

The school year is coming to an end and children everywhere are rejoicing.

Parents, on the other hand, are probably not as excited to have their kidโ€™s home all summer long and will be counting down the days until school starts again.

The end of the school year is the perfect time to give your childโ€™s teacher a small gift to show your appreciation

The people who teach our children donโ€™t often get the credit they deserve. Great teachers put their heart and soul into their job. Almost everyone has a special teacher they remember from their childhood who made a positive impact on their life.

Purchasing gifts for teachers can be difficult. How do you know what they like? Edible gifts like coffee and chocolate can be hit or miss depending on their personal preference and possible food allergies.

Handmade gifts from the heart are always a great idea. Itโ€™s nice to show someone how much they mean to you with a gift that youโ€™ve poured your heart and soul into. Itโ€™s great to have kids lend a hand in making a gift for their teachers or caregivers

Kids will love to make this cute and simple painted planter for their teachers.

If you donโ€™t have time to paint the pot or your kids donโ€™t like to do crafts you can always buy a pretty pot and use the free printable.
