Teacher Appreciation Ideas: Teacher Favorites Free Printable

Sometimes it’s hard to come with teacher appreciation ideas throughout the year or at special times like the winter holidays or the end of the school year. Why not grab my FREE PRINTABLE and get to know your teacher a little better so you can show him/her just how much you appreciate them anytime during the year.

Share the print with your child’s teacher and then keep on file for those special teacher appreciation events or just regular days you want to show you care. (I love dropping off her favorite coffee drink, or after school snack “just because”.)

Take it a step further and create a binder of all the teacher’s and staff in your school to live in the office or parent lending library, maybe your school even has a website you could create a library on. 

It’s no secret that I LOVE showering our teacher’s with love. They work so tirelessly and against such odds to give our children the best. If my glee on the first day is any indication of how glad I am to not have their job, I should owe them all the chocolate in the world!

Scripture Art for Boys: Free Prints for a Quick Room Update

We updated our boys and guest bathroom recently. Creating and printing scripture art for boys was the most inexpensive way I could personalize the space and update it at the same time. Taking two favorite Bible Scriptures and a lyrics to a current favorite Christian Song, made creating these free scripture art for the boys meaningful and helpful all at the same time.

What you’ll need to create your own Scripture Art for Boys

  • Download 8.5″x11″ Scripture Art or 11″x17″ Scripture Art
  • Wall Picture Frames in the coordinating size.

The 8.5″ x 11″ prints are full page, you can adjust to size if you want to print them smaller in your printer menu. The 11″ x 17″ prints are what I used and trimmed down to fit my frames.

I love praying these scriptures over our boys:

An excellent musician, he’s also courageous, of age, well-spoke, and good looking; and God is with him. 1 Samuel 16:18

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. 1 Timothy 4:12

The boys love the song Good Good Father written by Pat Barrett and Tony Brown and famously recorded by Chris Tomlin and they asked for one of the prints to include these lyrics:

Your a good good father, it’s who you are, and I am loved by you, it’s who I am.

Need a fourth scripture art or art print for your boy’s room? I also made this bathroom reminder (because all kids need bathroom reminders don’t they) to scrub, flush, wash, brush, and comb. 

The blue and grey tones of these free scripture art prints for boys will go great in any white, grey, or navy bathroom. Enjoy!

Pumpkins: Decorate without the Mess this Fall

I love fall! The warm drinks from pumpkins, hot cider, walking in the leaves, football games… What I HATE is carving pumpkins. I enjoy eating pumpkin, roasted seeds, picking pumpkins… but scoop out that nasty stringy stuff, no thank you.  I also dislike how it makes my pretty pumpkins die a slow, gross death, making keeping them on the porch until Thanksgiving near impossible.  

So let’s talk about some mess-free pumpkin options.

This whole project takes less than 20 minutes. It’s a sure thing the kids will get into it too. When we made the pumpkins for this post, my 8-year-old finished it up the letters after I did the first one. Yay for help!


I picked up our supplies at the dollar store near me. So each pumpkin cost me $1 to decorate (and I scored these pumpkins at Aldi for less than $3) I love an UNDER $5 project, don’t you?

  • 50-300 thumbtacks.

I got silver, but you could spray paint them and make them colored if you wanted. Or paint your pumpkin first.  We have done this before where each kid did the first letter of their name. Other words you might try: thanks, hello, boo

You can hardly see it, but after I settled on a design (on paper) I penciled it onto the pumpkin. Start pushing your thumbtacks at intersections of the lines in your letters to ensure great spacing.

  • vinyl number or letter stickers

I was looking for letters but found these great bold numbers for $1. Love the school style look they added to this tall pumpkin. Plus it had us counting like The Count from Sesame Street. Other ways to use stickers: your house number, your latitude and longitude, 10/31/16, the year.

Don’t the pumpkins look so cute by the front door? We leave them there through Thanksgiving. Then we go pumpkin bowling with them – this had become a family tradition. Seeing which one goes the farthest, and which one finally makes the biggest mess.
