It's Never Too Late to Appreciate! Water-Bottle Gift Idea and FREE Printable

Today is the last day of Teacher Appreciation Week. One week just does not seem like enough appreciation for any educational professional! We need encouragement and appreciation all year round!

Way back in February, my co-school counselor and I made decided to make water-bottle gifts for staff during National School Counseling Week. My co-school counselor saw something similar on Pinterest.

We purchased bulk packs of water bottles and individual drink mix packets in a variety of flavors. We printed the message "Together we help  'quench' the 'thirst' for knowledge! We appreciate you!" on yellow card stock. We then punched a hole in the top and tied the cards on with embroidery floss.  We used glue dots to affix the individual drink mix packets to the cards.

The water bottles turned out really cute and the staff loved them!  They were inexpensive, simple, and quick to make. I love that they look so bright and cheery!

These water bottles are a simple gift you can give any time of the year! They would especially be a great end of year token of appreciation for school staff!

I created a pdf printable version of the cards you can use to appreciate staff at your school! Click on the image below to download the printable.
What message would you write on water bottles to staff?  What other tokens of appreciation have you given or received at your school?
