Teacher Restaurant Gift Idea and Printable Teacher Restaurant Gift Idea and Printable

‘Tis the season for teacher gifts.  We love teachers and value them so much!  It’s fun to come up with a cute and clever teacher gift each year.

Today I’m sharing a Teacher Restaurant Gift Idea with a free cute printable tag.
sm teacher restaurant gift 2

Just grab your teacher’s favorite restaurant gift card.  Download our free Printable “Thanks for “Feeding” our hearts and minds.  Then glue or tape on the gift card.  The gift cards usually come with a sticky back already…and I just affixed the card with the sticky part still intact.

We love to give these gift cards with the teachers’ favorite snacks.  Maybe a drink, snack and treat.  We have also included bread from a favorite bread store.  You can add these all to a cute gift basket and tie it up with a bow. sm teacher restaurant gift 1

Great Time - Watch Teacher Gift Idea

I’ve been eyeing these watches on every visit to Michael’s (which is a lot!) and the last time I was there they were on sale 2 for 1. So, obviously I stocked up. I thought they’d make great gifts, although I didn’t really have anyone in mind. I just knew for that price they were coming home with me. Let’s note that this is NOT a sponsored post by Michael’s, I just like to have a well stocked gift drawer in my arsenal. You can find a wide assortment of jelly watches here as well. Great Time - Watch Teacher Gift Idea

Last night was my daughter’s dance recital and as I was running through ideas of little gifts we could gift her teachers I remembered this stash of watches.

Last year I made a printable as an end of year teacher gift that went with a watch. The little saying on it has never been one of my favorites, so I decided to play with the word TIME this time around. Which I think leaves this printable open to be used for so much more than just school teacher.  Dance Teacher – Piano Teacher – Church Teacher – Swim Teacher. What other type of teacher would this work for?

Great Time - Watch Teacher Gift Idea

I used the template from last year to create this year. But these watches are way different from the ones I used last time. The holes at the bottom of the tag are intended for the watch to be done up in the back. These jelly watches lay flat really well. So I moved tome things around and came up with having the slits in the middle.

Great Time - Watch Teacher Gift Idea

With the watch laying flat, the card easily slips into a long envelope. If you don’t want to bother with an envelope you can use washi tape to secure the watch in the back.

Great Time - Watch Teacher Gift Idea

I left the background white so it can be printed on different colors of cardstock to go with difference colors of watches. We printed on teal cardstock to put the white watches with and they were super cute.

 

Both the bottom and middle opening versions are available on this download:

Science Teacher Gift Idea - Periodic Element Thank You

Teacher Appreciation week is coming up and I’ve been trying to think of a thoughtful gift to give when I saw these Method Pink Grapefuit Cleaners caught. These are my all time favorite cleaner (they’re even on my Amazon subscribe and save). Nothing freshens up a room like a citrus scent! And well, kids are messy and smelly so I figured teachers will appreciate it as much as mom’s do. When giving teacher gifts I aim for a consumable, something they can enjoy and use up so it doesn’t create clutter. And I try to not give treats or food, unless I know what their favorites are.

Don't Eat the Snowman Free Printable “Don’t Eat Pete” is a favorite game at our house!  We love playing it for family night.  I made a “Snowman Don’t Eat Pete” version to play this week!…Don’t Eat the Snowman!

Sharing a free printable for you!  Print (8×11.5).

Directions:

Place one small candy (m & m’s, & skittles are good ideas for candy) in each square of the “Don’t Eat the Snowman” Sheet. Send a child away from the room and have the remaining children choose which Snowman will be “Pete”.  Have the first child come back and begin eating the candy on each snowman, one at a time. As soon as the child tries to pick up the candy that is on the “Pete” Snowman, everyone yells, “Don’t eat the Snowman!!!!” Let each child have a turn and refill the game board with treats.  Repeat this again and again!
This is also a great game for class parties, family parties, or Family night!  WE love it!

Do your kiddos love coloring pages!?! My littles do! Did you know that there’s a lot you can do with a fun coloring page besides just coloring them!?!

How To Use Coloring Pages For More Than Just Coloring

Hello, Crafting Chick friends! I’m Shelly Dolen from Dolen Diaries and today I’m going to share my coloring page tricks. I love coming up with novel ways to practice the skills my littles are working on at school. They get the practice they need and have fun while doing it.

FREE Printable Pumpkin Coloring Page

 

Typically when I’m printing out printables, I print two 5x7s. Then I cut the page in 1/2 so we have two learning activities for the price of one. (Click on the photo to print)

Practicing Sight Words with Crayon Resist

Mystery Words: Sight words can be tricky! Make it fun by writing the words in white crayon then have your kiddo watercolor over the crayon. Challenge them to see how fast they can figure out the mystery word.

Odd and Even Number Practice

Odd & Even Numbers: Write odd and even numbers on the pumpkins. Color the odd pumpkins one color and the evens another color.

Patterning with Coloring Pages

Patterning: Practicing making patterns with colors or different jack-o-lantern faces.

Using Coloring Pages for Letter Hunts

Letter Hunt: Write the letters of your preschooler’s name on separate pumpkins and then fill in the rest with random letters. Color only the pumpkins that spell your name. Or simply call out random letter names an have them dob them with a bingo dobber.

Now you have some fun coloring page tricks that will help your kiddos work on skills at home! If you have some tricks up your sleeve please share them! I’d love to add them to the mix!

Family Motto

We’re about a week into the new school year. After a few days we noticed that one of our kids was really grumpy about school. As I was talking to him he mentioned how he only liked to do fun things, and that school is not fun. He is a really smart kid, but school is hard for him. After my rant of “life isn’t fun” I came up with our family motto for the school year.

Family Motto Because, while we don’t expect him to have the top grades in his class or to bring home 100% on every spelling test, we do expect him to try his very best (whether or not it is fun)!

Family Motto

To be sure he never forgets, I’ve hung these signs around the house, and even slipped one in his daily school planner.

Family Motto

To make them, I printed off the motto with a copy machine and ran them through the Minc Machine. Easy as pie.

Minc

And while the family motto received a lot of eye rolling, he thinks the Minc is pretty awesome.

Minc

And I think he’s pretty awesome too!

Psst…Amazon.com has the Minc Machine and foil Starter kit for just $95! That’s a great price if you’ve been wanting one.

If you’re family needs a little reminder to do their very best, you can download our motto below.

I’m curious, do you have a family motto?


Thank You Tags – Free Printables are perfect to add to gifts and presents for any occasion.

Thank You Tags - Free Printables from TheCasualCraftlete.com for TheCraftingChicks.com

Hello there!  It’s Katie from The Casual Craftlete.  I hope you all have been enjoying your summer.  Today I am sharing a few Free Printable Thank You Tags that I have created.  I am a sucker for all occasion crafts and printables.  A lot of times special occasions sneak up on me and I like to have some thank you tags on hand for when that happens.  These thank you tags can be added to gift bags, packages, cards and more.  You can even print several of the Thank You tags and bundle them together with paper favor bags, twine and clothespins and use for a personalized favor packaging gift set.

Thank You Free Printables

I thought since school will be starting shortly, these thank you tags would be nice to add to a teachers gift this school year.  It’s a nice little way to say you are grateful for all their hard work.  I  like adding some small sweet treat to a polka dot kraft bag.  Then I attached the coral thank you tag to a larger tag I made using floral scrapbook paper.  This gives the tag dimension and color.

Free Printable Thank You Tags

For me there are so many times when I want to say thank you with a little gift and these tags make such a wonderful addition. I love making brownies or a plate of cookies and dropping it off to say thank you. It’s nice to quickly grab one of these tags and attach it with a clothespin or some bakers twine and you are all set!

Free Printable Thank You Tags by TheCasualCraftlete.com for TheCraftingChicks.com

I have made three different designs for you to print.  Two of the designs have black typograph with pretty floral frames.  I recommended printing those on kraft cardstock.  I just like the natural look and the brown kraft makes the black ink stand out.  For some fun and color, I made the third design in coral.  Right now coral is my favorite color and just happens to be trendy.  I recommended printing the coral color thank you tag on white cardstock.  Each thank you tag is approximately 2 inches in size.  You can use any 2 inch or larger shape punch to cut the tags out.  The round tags would be cute to use as a seal on a card envelope.

To download the tags, simply click the links below and always remember these printables are for personal use only.
