Swim Teacher Appreciation Gift


My boys just finished up their private swimming lessons with what we think is the best swim teacher ever! She is amazing & they are swimming so well now.  When we spotted this free printable from Lil Luna (one of our favorite blogs) we just had to make this!  You can find the one from Lil Luna HERE & it looks a bit different. Hers is a lot more colorful. We used goldfish instead because I am pretty sure their swim teacher does not eat candy. 

Swimming lessons have been the best money I have ever spent.  Having 3 boys and knowing they are safe in the pool is a must for me.  I used to worry myself sick when we went swimming trying to keep track of all of them!  Plus, swimming teachers should receive appreciation gifts just like any other teacher....right?!  

Swim Teacher Appreciation Gift

1 Clear Pail (got ours at Jo-ann's)
Blue Shredded Paper (Michaels or Jo-ann's)
Washi Tape
Hot Glue Gun

We started out snipping off pieces of the washi tape & lining it around the edges of the lid like this....


Then glue on the printable....


Use washi tape to decorate around the sides then glue on the front printable....


Line the bottom with the blue shredded paper (or you could use blue M&M's) & then fill with Goldfish crackers. We used regular and baby crackers. Here is my 2 year old showing the handle....


My boys also colored their swim teacher cards.....


She loved it! This is such a fun & easy craft to make a swim teacher. Kids can also make this themselves!!
