Teacher appreciation week is my favorite week! This year, I am SO busy. I don’t have time to go all out like I normally would. Nonetheless, I want my daughter’s pre-k teacher and supporting paraprofessionals to know that our family appreciates their hard work and dedication. This week, I am recycling some old teacher appreciation DIY projects from her daycare days. No harm in that, right?

First up, we gave this “Nacho Average Teacher” gift. Keeping it simple, I used a dollar store container (that can be used by teacher later), salsa, cheese sauce, and tortilla chips. I’m sure they will get tons of crayon mugs this week. So, I hope they can appreciate this yummy treat!

There are so many different ways you can spruce up this easy DIY gift. You can add a gift card to a local restaurant or a fun chip bowl and towel set. In the past, I even added drinks! If you try this idea, have fun with it! You know what your teachers like.

Go say THANK YOU to your “Nacho Average Teachers”!
