Framed Teacher Gift Idea

If you’re looking for a gift that’s sure to make a teacher feel appreciated, try this easy DIY idea! All you need is a photo frame, paper, and markers, along with your child’s ideas. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Think of your five favorite things about the teacher.

As a former English teacher myself, I am a firm believer in the rough draft, so I encourage you to have your child jot down the five things he or she likes best about the teacher on a piece of scrap paper.

Step 2: Write or type the list on a piece of paper.

If your kids enjoy art projects, they can get really crafty with this part, using colorful markers and hand lettering/doodling to create the list. Or, they can type it, choosing fun fonts and colors. Anything goes!

Step 3: Pop the list into a frame.

All that’s left to do is frame this masterpiece and give it away! Teachers of all subjects and grade levels will love this gift, because it’s personal and comes from the heart. Plus, who doesn’t want to hear five reasons why they’re great?

Remember, there is literally no wrong way to do this project; it’s all about the sentiment. It’s sure to be a gift that’s treasured for years to come. If you try it, I’d love to see how your/your kids’ version turns out. Be sure you’re part of the Amy Latta and Friends Facebook Group so you can share photos of your latest projects and we can all inspire each other! See you there.
