Bananas and Water Bottles seem kinda 'meh' for a Teacher Appreciation idea; however, it's not only easy...it's well received!
Even though we're just a week into high school, I wanted to give a quick 'Thank You' to our teachers. The first of the year is so crazy-busy-why-did-summer-ever-end-hectic, GreekC and I thought a little something to ease the slide into the school year was in order.
After scouting Pinterest for an idea, I found the lovely Mud Pie Studio's blog. Wow! Does this girl have it going on! Jumping on the banana bandwagon, I told GreekC, who is uber-crafty. Within minutes of our discussion, she whipped out Bengal-themed decor, cutie 'Thanks A Bunch' water bottle labels, and everything to deck out our teacher's lounge table.
Here's how I threw it all together:
The bananas have little quotes written on them. Some were funny, others inspirational. Anything to make a banana fun! I found the quotes at BrainyQuote. I was going to use a Sharpie Marker, but overthought it and got a bit neurotic, and worried the pen would bleed through the peel. Ewww!!! Instead, I tried a ballpoint pen. Worked fabulously! Here's a closer view:

They appeared overnight! Well, snot.
Hope everyone knows that's the best time to eat a banana!
If you need a quick, easy, and inexpensive (under $12 for 40 Teachers and Admin Staff!) Teacher Appreciation idea...or for any gratitude moment...give this a try.
How do you show gratitude?
