Teachers hold a special place in kids` hearts. So, let children write (or you, parents, do it instead of them, if they can`t write yet) the heartfelt words on the cards to demonstrate their sincere appreciation, and give the cards to their teacher.

Diverse handmade picture Appliques can be touching First Day of School gifts as well.

How to make the given below appliques is clear from the pictures — they are made from colored paper quite easily. Use your imagination and your own pictures may be much more beautiful.

The craft Bouquet of Flowers is a creative way of teaching little children that the best gifts come from the hearts. Elementary school children will love to transform colored paper into wonderfull flowers, which then assembled into a beautiful bouquet can make a lovely teacher appreciation gift on First Day of School. We hope the craft won`t be difficult for your kids to create; perhaps only the work with scissors will need parents` help.

To make such a flower take paper of the colors you like, cut out a square of an arbitrary size, with a pencil draw a spiral line on it, cut by the line and start twisting the made strip into a flower.

Then take pieces of wire or coctail sticks, cover them with green/brown paper (if they aren`t of these colors) and fix the flowers on the top of them. The flowers are made. The process of working is shown in the pictures below.
