Thank You for Helping Me Grow Printables (Teacher Gift)

School is winding down for most of us, and maybe some of your kiddos are already out. With preschool being a new venture for me, I tend to forget about things like bringing snacks on my snack day and buying teacher gifts on holidays. Luckily, my MIL is a teacher, so she periodically reminds me about these things :)

I know that many teachers tend to get food gifts - and hey, don't get me wrong, I love getting 5 pounds of chocolate as much as the next girl - but I'm sure all the chocolate can be a little overwhelming at times. Not that I know, I "helped" finish my kids' Halloween candy within the month, and there's definitely no leftover Easter candy.

I'm just living for the next holiday people.

With that in mind, I decided to give a non-food gift, and instead came up with this cute printable to add to some potted flowers that says, "Thank you for helping me GROW!" Corny? Maybe, but I love it and I hope they will too!

I just love these flowers. I have no idea what kind they are (anyone else know??) but they remind me of something out of a Dr. Seuss book.

If you want to do something similar for your child's teachers, you can download my free printables by clicking HERE .


To attach the tag, all I did was punch a couple of holes in the side and string some baker's twine through the holes.

If you're not into the large potted plants, I also made a smaller tag for individual potted plants. I hot glued the tag onto a paper straw and tied some ribbon on. Voila!

Both versions of the tag are available in the download. Have fun making gifts for your favorite teachers!
