STREAM Activity: Teacher Appreciation Craft
Show your teacher your appreciation for them with a craft!
Activity best for children age 4 and up
Teachers help us learn new things and grow our minds and hearts! Show your teacher that they are a superhero with this special Teacher Appreciation craft.
Tape or glue stick
1 piece of white paper
1 piece of construction paper
Markers, crayons, or colored pencils
A gift for your teacher (Gift card, candy bar, granola bar, or envelope with a special note!)
What new things has your teacher helped you learn this year?
What do you love most about your teacher? Why?
Draw a picture of your teacher’s face on your white paper. Add a fun superhero mask around their eyes! Then, cut out this drawing.
Lay your colorful construction paper out horizontally. Grab the top left corner of the paper. Fold it down towards the middle of the paper stopping when the edge makes a diagonal.
Repeat this with the right side of the paper. This will be your superhero cape!
Decorate your superhero cape with any designs (or stickers!) that you think are fun.
Tape the flap of your cape shut. Then tape your superhero face to the top opening of the superhero cape.
Tape your treat or note to your teacher inside your superhero cape!
Give your gift to your teacher to thank them for being a learning superhero each day to you!
