Teacher Appreciation Week!

So we are embroiled in Teacher Appreciation week here and I have been a-crafting! LOL

I have two kiddos in school so that means two of everything. First up I made some little shadow box frames for each teacher....

This one is for my youngest's Kindergarten teacher.


This one is for a third grade teacher. I figured that the crayons were a little "young" for a middle grade, so I made the word cloud and use a pencil.


Lastly, I saw these mini-Oreo apples at Skip to My Lou and HAD to give them a try!


They turned out so cute but were pretty time consuming! The cookies kept falling off the toothpicks I was using to help me dip them into the candy melts. But my kiddos reported that they were yummy and well received. :)

Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!

Oh I posted and it disappeared on me! Just wanted to say how cute...Skip to my Lou always has a ton of cool ideas, I like to pop there for inspiration! Your frames are adorable and such fun and your apples turned out perfectly! I can't find mini oreos here in the UK! :) I'll have to think of something else! Hugs x

These are awesome! If I didn't homeschool, I'd have made these! Well, maybe I should just make them for myself and my husband as we're Lilly's teachers... ;)
