The Summer holidays are approaching. It's time for teachers everywhere to breathe a sigh of relief and parents to make sure their cupboards are stocked with Gin for when the children have finally gone to bed.
Teachers work really hard throughout the year and it's time to show our appreciation! We have some lovely end of school year gift ideas to help you to say thank you for all their hard work.
Hand Painted Plant Pot
It is lovely to receive something handmade. We think a plant pot painted by your child would make a lovely end of term gift. They can write, 'Thank you for helping me to grow!' on the pot and you could plant a little flower in it for them to enjoy. If your child is leaving school this year you could plant a forget me not.
Let the Summer Holidays BeGIN
As the school year draws to a close, teachers can sit down and enjoy their favourite tipple. Our Gin to Go bags are a perfect end of term gift. They contain everything you need to make 4 perfect G & T’s. Our ‘Colour Your Own Beer’ gift bags are lovely too. Your child could draw a picture or write a message on the labels.
If your TEAcher would prefer a nice cup of tea, our Yorkshire Tea experience taste box would make a great gift.
Summer Survival Kit
The Summer holidays are a time for teachers to relax. They have lots of other jobs to do outside the classroom, so you could put together a Summer survival kit to help them. Gather magazines, sun cream, hand cream, chocolates and a bottle of wine and pop them into a beach bag or a children's bucket. 'All year you have worked hard to make learning fun so now it's your turn to relax in the sun!'
Bags, Pencil Cases and Notebooks
We have a lovely range teacher gifts in our shops. They have 'World's Best Teacher' printed on the front and are available in 2 different designs, 'Thank You' and 'You are A*’. They are also a practical gift that a teacher can use for the following school year.
D.I.Y. Crayon Jar
This is simple to make and very effective! Using double sided sticky tape, stick crayons to an empty jar. You can then fill the jar with treats or flowers. You could add a little gift tag which says, 'To Teach Is to Colour A Life Forever!'
These gorgeous cookies from Cookielicious are a lovely way to show your appreciation! An apple and a caterpillar are perfect little gifts for the end of the school year. You could add a little note saying, 'Thank you for making me a smart cookie!'
Say It with Flowers
Flowers have a way of saying many wonderful things. A beautiful bouquet is a lovely way to say thank you for all their hard work throughout the year.
Don't Forget the Card
Getting your child to write their teacher a thank you card at the end of the year is a lovely way to show your appreciation! It is something they can treasure, and they can also see how much your child has improved over the year. Children learn quickly and their reading and writing shows this. It is lovely to show their teacher that their hard work has paid off.
From Saturday the 14th July until the end of term children can pick up a free ‘colour your own card’ and a free apple for their teacher in both of our shops. If you are visiting Keelham Kitchen they can make a card whilst they are waiting for their food. We think this will be a great way to tick a job of your to do list and keep the kids occupied whilst they wait for their meal.
