Teacher appreciation week is in full swing, and it’s so much fun to see how everyone is using their free printables! Here are a few wonderful ideas that have popped up in bloggy-land this week:

Kathryn from Penguin’s Gift made a lovely package using kraft paper gift tag and bright green ribbon. The gift inside? A caramel sampler from The Caramel Jar on Etsy. (YUM!)

Teresa from Creative Cowgirl is sending a gift to her daughter’s teachers every day for seven days (so super-sweet)! First up were plates of cupcakes, each tied with a tag.

Gift #2 is a snack bag that included an apple, peanut butter, and Hershey Kisses, finished with a note from Teresa’s daughter. I’m seriously wondering what’s to come for days 3 through 7! : )

If you haven’t downloaded your printables yet, it’s not too late – get info here, at How Does She!

    Our Student Council gave us desk sized photo frames with decorative paper inside and a dry erase markers to write messages on them. They also wrote us sweet notes on your printable, gave us a morning soda, made tiny versions of your banner for each of our teacher workrooms AND cleaned out each refrigerator in each workroom too!! I LOVE this week!!! Thanks for the inspiration!

      That's so awesome, Emily!! That's a real reflection on you and the other teachers for the students to go out of their way like that. (I mean, seriously? Nobody likes cleaning a fridge!) ; )
