For many, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week!  Between three children, we have 16 teachers to show appreciation for, and show our appreciation we will do! For a busy Mom like me, it is easier to have a plan of the gifts we will send through the week, rather than try to figure out what we will send the night before! 

With a little planning, you can make these gifts in bulk, saving you time, money and a little stress!
