Spring is the time of year where teacher gift ideas are sought out.
Homemade cards and gifts for teachers are always popular for these occasions.
This is the last week of the church school program my kids attended this year, and so we’ve been busy making some adorable handprint homemade teacher appreciation cards.
Cards from students, especially homemade cards, are one of the mementos teachers tend to keep year after year. (I still have all of mine from my years in the classroom.)

Homemade Teacher Appreciation Cards
Our favorite card was a bouquet of hand print flowers.
Use a paintbrush to thoroughly coat your child’s hand in green paint to make the flower stems for the card.
Have them use a different color paint to create the flowers. Just paint one finger and have them make petals with their fingerprint. For a touch of sparkle you can add a bit of glitter to the wet paint.
A simple construction paper flower pot finishes the card.
Add the words “Thanks for helping me grow!” to the flower pot to complete your homemade teacher card. (It would also make a cute homemade Mother’s Day card.)
Homemade Teacher Card
Need a second handprint teacher card and want to do something a little different?
This time turn your child’s handprint sideways. Add a googly eye and use a permanent marker to make a few details and you have a cute hand print fish.
Write “Thanks for making school cool” or a similar phrase at the bottom and you’re done!
These homemade teacher appreciation cards are sure to make your child’s teacher smile.
