Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 1-5, and we want to honor the teachers that work so hard to make each day a learning adventure for our children.

Below are 2 easy Teacher Appreciation crafts that you can do with your kids (ages 3 and up).

Mason Jar Craft and Gift Tag


  • 1 small Mason jar, self-sealing
  • 1 old map, or print out a map of your state/town on printer paper
  • 1 gift tag or print the ones included below
  • 1 piece of string, 12-18 inches long
  • Scissors
  • Pens, crayons or markers
  • Goodies to fill jar


  1. Print out your map HERE 
  2. The map will be placed on top of the Mason jar lid for decoration. Place the jar on the map and trace around the section that includes your state or town.
  3. Cut out the traced section of the map. Decorate your map as desired, for example, draw a heart around your town!
  4. Glue the cut section of the map to your lid. Set it aside to dry.   mason-jar-final
