6 Activities to Express Your Gratitude This Teacher’s Day

Whether your child loves his or her teacher or doesn’t like going to school, chances are their preschool teacher does all sorts of great things for your child. They’re probably underpaid and underappreciated too. After all, these are the people that play a huge role in a child’s life other than the parents.

That’s why showing your appreciation and teaching your kids why their preschool teachers are special is important. Use these six activities you can do with your kids to help them show their gratitude this upcoming teacher’s day.

  1. Organize a breakfast or lunch event at the school or on the weekend. Organize with other parents in your child’s class and always do the work and foot the bill. If nobody wants to cook you can always take them out to lunch or buy them a gift certificate to a favorite restaurant in the area.

  2. Make a simple art project with your kids. Even some macaroni art that spells out “World’s Best Teacher” or a similar sentiment can mean a lot. Just make sure you kids deliver the art the day they’re supposed to!

  3. Send flowers to your child’s teacher. Everybody loves getting flowers at work and teachers are no different! Get the parents together to pitch in a few dollars each and you’ll be able to buy a wonderful bouquet.

  5. Make a special treat with your child to give to their favorite teacher. Cookies, brownies and even things like homemade pies can really mean a lot.

  6. Don’t be afraid to offer cash, especially if you’re giving to a young teacher. Gift cards are nice too, but remember that teachers don’t always make as much as they should.

  7. Buy your child’s teacher something simple like movie tickets. Everybody likes going to the movies.
