DIY Teacher Appreciation Gift Box

Teacher Appreciation Boxes filled with gummy bears

Your kids spend a lot of time learning and growing with their teachers. So, it’s fair enough to show them how thankful we are for all their work!

And what better way to show it than by DIYing some Teacher Appreciation gift boxes!

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for teacher appreciation week, the birthday of your child’s favorite teacher, or an end-of-the-school-year gif, these printable color-in gift boxes are all you need to make your kids and their teachers happy.

You can fill them in with cute candies, tiny school supplies, or gift cards. Whatever your child’s teacher likes the most.

I recommend crafting these boxes with third graders or above. But, you can definitely do it with younger kids, as long as they get help with the cutting.

So, let’s make these cute gifts made from the heart. I’m sure teachers will treasure them more than anything else!

What is the best gift for a teacher?

After a long talk about teachers and all the nice things they do, I came to the conclusion that teachers love their students and what they craft. Especially when children put a lot of effort and time into creating a masterpiece just for them.

To make everything easier for you, I have designed these free printable gift boxes for teachers that can be downloaded at the end of this post.

They come in 2 different sizes, so you can print as many as you need.

Your kids can color them as they want, and fill them with anything their teachers like.

It just couldn’t get any easier! Let’s make these cute DIY teacher gifts.

Printable gift boxes for teachers

  1. Print the templates at home or your local print store.

I recommend doing this on white cardstock for durability.

  1. Then, let your kids decide if they want to color the boxes right away or cut them first.

They can use markers, crayons, colored pencils, or watercolors for the coloring; and scissors for the cutting.

Below you can see multiple examples.

TIP: once the boxes are finished, the kids can also decorate them with stickers, glitter, feathers, buttons, pom poms, or even draw some extra doodles. Let their imagination fly.

  1. Now that your boxes are ready, you can fill them with anything you want. We decided to add some gummy bears because they are our favorite.

And if you feel that you still need something extra, you can always include a gift card. It fits inside the big box.
