Did you know this week is Teacher Appreciation week? Say thanks with our Crayon Frame Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea!
If you have kids around the house, then you most likely have crayons. And if you have school-aged kids then you probably have a teacher or two that you’d like to thank. Because let’s be honest, with all those kids they have to manage every day, they definitely deserve some appreciation. This Crayon Frame Teacher Appreciation gift idea is an easy way to say thank you while incorporating a few of those crayons!
For this Crayon Frame Teacher Appreciation gift idea you’ll need a 4×6 picture frame with a stand on back so the teacher can display it on their desk, a piece of heavy cardstock cut to the size of the frame, ribbon, a small piece of twine, a tag to write thank you, hot glue, and crayons. If you’re using some used crayons you may have around, make sure they’re mostly in tact so they fit most of the width of the frame.
You could also tuck a Starbucks or office supply store gift card in the wrap of ribbon for an extra expression of thanks!
Crayon Frame Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea
- 4×6 picture frame with stand
- crayons, 16 per frame
- cardstock, cut to size
- gift tag
- small hole punch
- hot glue
First, take off the back from your frame and remove the glass. Using the back as a template, trace the shape on your cardstock and cut to size. Insert the cardstock in your frame and replace the back. Then, taking a long length of ribbon, hot glue the ribbon across the center of the cardstock leaving enough length coming out both ends to tie. Hot glue your crayons from end to end. I found the 16 crayons fit perfectly.
Once all crayons are hot glued in place, take the 2 sides of ribbon and tie together with a bow. Trim any excess. Optionally, you can hot glue the ends of the bow, as well, to make sure they’re lying just right. In short, just go crazy with the hot glue! Ha!
With your thank you tag, punch a hole on top. Write your thank you message, then slide a piece of twine through as well as through the ribbon, tying a simple knot in place.
With a gift card or even without, this would be a great way to show appreciation to a special teacher. Be sure to show your appreciation and gratitude this week!
