Y’all…I love themes! When you give me some sort of event to do my first thing to do is to go to Pinterest and find a theme! With May coming up in few short days I thought I would share with you what we did for our teachers this year. No…it’s not the magic of the internet…our school board changed our teacher appreciation week to March. So, that works out great for you because I can share with you the wonderful ideas we came up with!
First, we had a schedule:
…Monday was a campfire breakfast where we cooked everything up in the kitchen and then rolled it all on a cart to serve the teachers breakfast in their room.
…Tuesday was a catered BBQ lunch that everyone said was delicious.
…Wednesday was a picnic, an actual picnic outside with hot dogs on a “grill”. This was my favorite day!
…Thursday we always watch the kids while the teachers go out to eat lunch.
…Friday we had a self serve trail mix bar.
Now that we had our schedule figured out we needed some décor! Luckily we have some very talented and creative parents that helped out and we decorated with things people already had so that didn’t cost us much at all!
Please enjoy the pictures and use them for ideas for your own teacher appreciation week. I wish I had taken more, but I had to drag my two youngest children up there with me every time I went and let’s just say they weren’t so fond of it (especially the 3 year old). But be sure to check out the printable at the end with the schedule for the teachers.
FYI…all the teachers said that they LOVED the theme!
Here is an example of the schedule we gave out to our teachers so that they would know what to be looking forward to. Feel free to print out for your use.
