No one ever forgets their favourite teacher. That special person who taught you something you’ll never forget, or helped you discover a talent you never knew you had. Teachers touch all of our lives, which is why we think it’s so important to give them the praise they deserve.

Which is where World Teacher’s Day comes in! This October 5th the world will recognise the importance of the role played by teachers all over the world. The responsibility for educating future generations is a biggie; so show your support for these important individuals.

To help you to get into the spirit of things and to inspire you to say a big thank you to the teachers in your life, we’ve compiled a little list of grand gestures to put a smile on any teacher’s face. Add your own in the comments section!

  1. Sit down with your little one and help them write a personal thank you note for everything they’ve learnt this year. No matter how short or scribbled on, this is sure to warm their teacher’s heart.
  2. Everyone loves to hear that they’re the best at what they do, so a ‘Worlds’ Best Teacher’ mug or plaque would go down a treat. Homemade? Even better! (Plus a great excuse to get crafty).
  3. Combine your love of crafts with your love of eating delicious cake! Get creative in the kitchen and make some fairy cakes to present to your teacher.
  4. If you really want to proclaim to the world how much you love your teacher, we’ve got just the DIY. Any sew on badge (with the addition of some heartfelt stitching and some handy VELCRO® Brand Sew On) becomes a snazzy, sticky ‘World’s Best Teacher’ badge.
