For the first time in, well….ever, Ryan got a teacher that doesn’t love Diet Coke and/or sweets. I’m always worried about getting teachers something they don’t like or won’t use, so I usually have my kids find out what their favorite treat is and get them that. This year, since Ryan’s teacher wasn’t really into the treats, I tried to think of something I could do that would be not too much work on my part, but something the teacher would appreciate. I was at Ikea and came up with the idea of creating a printable for a Picture Perfect Teacher End of Year Gift!
This was so easy to do and I figured even if the teachers didn’t want to keep the printable in the frame, they could still use the frame for something else. My kids also thought it was awesome because it had a picture of them so their teacher could remember them. 🙂
Here is what you are going to need…
Picture frame (I got this one from Ikea.com for $.99 it holds two pictures and worked out great)
This is the printable that I created on picmonkey.com
I printed this out for one side of the frame and added a picture of my child on the other side. I printed them in a 4×6 size at Walgreens for about $.30 each. I had the ribbons already so those didn’t cost me anything. So all in all, I spent less than $2.00 each making this cute gift for their teachers.

It should print out in up to a 5×7 size without any problems!
I let each of the kids add a little note to their teacher, and because I couldn’t help myself I added a little milk chocolate truffle for each teacher. 🙂 I honestly feel like teachers are so important and need to be recognized often so they know how much we appreciate all they do for our children. Even if it’s something small, it helps them to know that we as parents know how hard they work for our kids. So make sure you thank your teachers! 🙂
