A brunch, a blessing, a bowl full of chocolate—how will you thank your team at the end of this season? Check out these fun ideas I found on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favorites:
T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U Notes
Julie from the Happy Home Fairy Blog suggests giving each child in a class a paper with a colorful letter drawn or printed on to hold up for a class pic that spells out “Thank You” or “We You!” The photo can be used to create a thank you card or fridge magnet for leaders.
Several pinners offered variations on potted plant gifts. There were herbs with soil sticks that read: “Thank you for sharing your thyme”, “Teachers help us grow,” and “Thank you for your service, you are mint!”
Thanks a Latte
Who doesn’t love getting a Starbucks or Tim Horton’s gift card? Variations of these themes include giving each leader a Starbucks Frappuccino with a “Thanks a Latte” note attached, or getting white travel mugs and having kids sign their names in a variety of colorful permanent markers.
Thank You Station
This simple idea involves setting out a jar or bowl, pencils, crayons, and notecards near each leader’s classroom. Encourage parents and kids to write a few kind words or to draw a picture for the caring teacher who shared Christ with them this year!
