This Teacher Thank You Note is sponsored by Crayola as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Last month we shared about the Crayola Thank a Teacher contest and we sat down to make a Thank a Teacher Note for all of our teachers to remind them how appreciated they are. Showing our gratitude and appreciation is important but it’s also fun to be able to enter the Crayola Thank a Teacher Contest!
Check out how easy it was for us to create a note and then make your own!
TEACHER THANK YOU NOTE
As a former teacher, I believe in the importance of schools and education. I know that teachers might not feel like they’re the most appreciated these days.
But I would do anything for Weston’s teachers.
During the week, he spends the majority of the time he’s awake with them. They’re very important people in our lives.
We do little things to let them know that they’re appreciated, including sending in treats and extra supplies. But sometimes something as simple as a thank you note can make a difference.
HOW TO MAKE A TEACHER THANK YOU NOTE
Thank you notes aren’t something that seem to be as common as they were in the past. I think that’s why they hold so much power these days. I’m working to teach my kids to live their lives full of gratitude.
Making a teacher thank you note can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be. You can get out all of the craft supplies and make a fancy note to take to school or keep it simple and let your child really take the lead. Whether you take a family approach or let your child do what calls to them, the fact that you took the time to say thank you will be felt.
Weston has been in school a few weeks and has gotten to know his teachers this year. We’re blessed to have another great team of teachers working with him. I couldn’t be more thankful. Because of his school and his teachers, we’ve had an amazing experience that we didn’t have his first year of school.
He also loves to take them little gifts and notes to let them know how happy he is this year. A good teacher makes all the difference. He wants to go to school each morning and is happy to spend his days with them. It gives me peace of mind.
Carrigan hasn’t started pre-K yet. She still has a few weeks to go but decided to make a teacher thank you note for her future teacher. I love that she wanted to make a note before she even knew which teacher she would have. I think it’s a sign that we’re going to have a great school year!

My appreciation for my teacher friends, my children’s teachers, and all teachers is the reason I love the Crayola Thank a Teacher campaign. Crayola is a brand that has been part of my personal and professional life since I was a kid.
