It goes without saying, but teachers rock–and they deserve our appreciation.
If you’re looking for ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week, this is a fun, fresh snack that parents at my kids’ school put together.
I love that they came up with such a fun, healthy way to show gratitude. And I’m sure the staff enjoyed having fresh fruit to grab during their busy days.
What You Need
Fresh Fruit: Such as apples, pears, oranges, clementines, peaches, plums, and bananas. Be sure to rinse anything with a peel they’ll be eating.
String, Yarn, or Rubber Bands: Use this to attach the notes to the fruit.
Tags: Make these out of colorful construction paper.
Fruit Puns: Some ideas:
