Thanking A Teacher

 Whether it’s the first day of school, the last day or a week of celebrating, there is always a time when you can show your appreciation to teachers. When you begin making gift baskets for teachers, try to let your children help as much as possible. If your children have several teachers or you want to do something special for each teacher in the school, then make small baskets that are the same as what you would give for a lead teacher but without as many items included.

A fun basket idea to hold all of the things you’ll give would be a red basket with a green bow or a green handle so that it resembles an apple.
