May Pinterest Pick 3: Saying Thank You


As we head into the home stretch it's time to say thank you to those who have helped us along the way this year.  Whether it be a fellow colleague, a parent volunteer, or your own child's teacher it's always nice to send a little something to let them know they are appreciated.  

I am sure y'all have seen some of the jokes going around about how your teacher really doesn't want some crafty idea you found on Pinterest, what she really wants is a gift card.  I have to admit this made me chuckle, and depending on what crafty thing is given, it could be very true.

However, I do think there are some clever ideas to be found on how to say thank you without breaking the bank or taking tons of time.  Here are a few of my current favorites:


I love this idea and it includes a tutorial and a free printable! How perfect is that! If you don't want to sew a key chain you can just grab a cute one that represents something the person likes and use that.  I don't recommend anything with apples though.  ;-)

I think this would make a great thank you for those parents that volunteer.  Head out to the playground at recess with some chalk, let your students help you create the chalk art, grab a chair and your camera and you are all set! Simple, fun and a nice keepsake for a parent.

Ok these are from an Etsy shop and I just LOVE them! If you've got someone who is a LOTR fan, Harry Potter fan, Star Wars or Star Trek fan this shop has some especially clever thank you cards just for them.  I think I am going to start using this expression in appreciation of others.  It's so much better than just saying, "Thank you."
