DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts

I posted last year with some Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas, and I have a few new ideas that I found this year.  Between my three children, I have three home-room teachers, and three “extra” teachers that I need to plan for, so I’m trying to get started a little early!

From Skip to My Lou, a “thanks a latte” printable card – perfect for the teacher who is a coffee lover.

Check out this super cute altered Pringles can that can be filled with goodies for the teacher, from Glue Sticks and Tape:
