Teacher Appreciation

Thank you Coffee

Teacher appreciation week is a fun time to show your kids’ teachers how much you appreciate their hard work, but it always seems to fall during the busiest time of the school year. This quick (less than 5 minutes!) craft is a fun way to add a personal touch to a quick thank you coffee, latte, or tea.

Tip: You can grab an empty cup from the local coffee place ahead of time. Measure the cup and make a few sleeves in advance. The day you want to deliver some fresh drinks to teachers, just slip a hand made coffee sleeve onto the cup when you pick up the coffee.  If your unsure if your teacher is a coffee drinker, fill the cup with mini chocolates, some tea bags, or even some hot chocolate mix.
