Number One Teacher Ribbon

Do you have a teacher who goes out of their way to help your child (or you) learn? Do you have a teacher who can be found working early, late, or both to make sure that each child gets what they need? Does your teacher go above or beyond? For most of us, the answer to these questions is YES, because so many of our teachers are truly amazing. That’s why we have a whole week celebrating teachers (though, really, is a week enough?). Show your teacher how special they are this teacher appreciation week with a special teacher appreciation ribbon that is super simple to make!

I’m sharing this project as part of Craft Lightning Teacher Appreciation Week. All week long Angie from the Country Chic Cottage, Jessica from Mad in Crafts, along with our crafty friends, are sharing fast and crafty ways you can recognize your teachers for all that they do! Be sure to check out the end of this post for more of their ideas.
