teacher appreciation week DIY

We can’t really get over the fact that we’re already in the last week of April! With May kicks off a crazy month of end of school actives and Summer weather urging it all ahead. Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week and we teamed up with Yoobi to share a super easy idea for your kiddos to do!Teacher Appreciation IdeasDid you guys know, on average, teachers can spend up to $485 out of pocket each year? That adds up to over $1.6 billion in teacher spending annually, just to supply core items for their students to have the tools they need to learn and be creative. (So sad!) That is one reason we don’t like teacher appreciation at the end of the school year when they could benefit from our help long before then, but we can always pad them for next year! Teacher Appreciation IdeasSo not only does giving the gift of Yoobi benefit your actual classroom but with each item purchased Yoobi gives another supply to a school in need so it’s of double benefit! So here’s how you can turn the gift of Yoobi into a sweet little present for your kids’ teachers! First, have them color a full page drawing: Teacher Appreciation Ideas We are so in love with their Twister Crayons because they make zero mess and last forever. They are great for a quiet time bag for church or a road trip. Just twist them back inside and you don’t need to worry about getting residue inside your purse, they don’t break, and they never dry out!Teacher Appreciation Ideas Once they’ve drawn their picture, cut the paper into a fan shape. This will allow you to make the cone for your flowers!Teacher Appreciation Ideas Tape up the inside of the cone to hold it in place and wrap it up with all the awesome school supplies you purchased, a gift card, treat or whatever your teacher would love!Teacher Appreciation IdeasFind all their awesomely designed school and art supplies on their site! Our kids whole- heartedly recommend these layer markers. They’ve kept them busy coloring for days and they can’t get over how the white marker changes the colors. We’re loving all the sweet secret messages, too!Yoobi Marker

First up an ode to our long favorite, Rugs USA, We’ve loved this online rug mecca for a LONG time. Rugs are such an easy (and at Rugs USA, affordable) way to shift and change up a room. And with kids you KNOW how things get so it’s nice to switch out a rug when the inevitable juice stain happens 🙁 IMG_5995

Jenna’s been talking about this rug a ton since she got it – gorgeous right? And so soft! Before she switched out this one she had a previous one by Rugs USA she loved as well but look how much it changes the room!
