end of the school year and teacher appreciation printables :: thanks for helping me swim

see full collection of printables here!

last year i sent parker to school everyday with something for his teacher to celebrate teacher appreciation week. this year, it’s another story. both my boys literally ran from me as i asked them who wanted to take adorable bags of goldfish to their teachers thanking them for “helping them swim through the school year.” you would have thought i asked them to carry a bomb to school. “no mom that’s so embarrassing, i have a guy teacher, i’m too old for that cute stuff were all excuses i heard. i miss the days of my little ones carrying in teacher gifts with HUGE smiles on their faces as they handed over their little treasures.

so, as i have said many times before i will now live vicariously through your children…so send me photos!


i just adore my little sea creatures. i think that i will find every excuse to use them!

you will see them as birthday printables very soon, but in the meantime i thought that they would make great teacher appreciation gifts.

i filled little bags with goldfish (did you know how many types of goldfish crackers are now available? it’s pretty awesome) and using double sided tape attached the fold over tag. the best part? they fold over toppers are DOUBLE sided!

now, if you don’t have a lot of time you can add the square gift tag to a bag of goldfish. these are smores goldfish. no way!!!! {it will be necessary to use a large bow to tie the tag. it just makes it cuter. promise.}

keep your eyes open for more end of the year printables including graduation! i am working FAST and FURIOUS to get new designs up on the website.

a BIG thank you to all the teachers out there who lay down their lives each days to teach our children. i hope this week you get lots of special love and treats from your students and parents. and, if any of my boy’s teachers read my blog – I TRIED!
