Reece’s kindergarten teacher is a man and I wanted to give him something “manly” for Teacher’s Appreciation Week.  Now don’t get me wrong – I am a grilling machine and I’m sure a lot of you are too!  I just like the idea of giving him something he is sure to appreciate and use.  Reece’s teacher is THE MOST WONDERFUL TEACHER!  I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate all that he has done for Reece this year.  Reece loves his teacher so much and has developed a real bond with him.  

I think a grilling or BBQ related gift is a great idea and is so easy to pull together.  (This would also be a great gift for Father’s Day.)  My husband even came up with some fun sayings to use along with this gift and you can tell that he has recently read The Hunger Games :)  These are all 4X6 printables – just click on the image to be linked to the file.

Items you might want to include in the basket:

Grilling Spatula
Basting Brush
Meat Thermometer
Steak Seasoning {Homemade or Store Bought}
Grill Cleaning Brush
Steak Sauce (A1 is easily made into A+)
Tablecloth Squeeze Bottles
Barbecue Sauce

Showing our appreciation to our children’s teachers is so important and we really should be doing it all year long in little ways if we can.  I simply would not be able to sit in a classroom with twenty 5 & 6 year olds and keep them entertained for three hours – much less teach them all that Reece has learned this year! Thank goodness for GREAT teachers!

  20. Just saw this on pinterest (and repinned of course). I looove the grill basket idea, it’s very unique and useful. Perfect for male teachers too. If money allowed, you could add a gift card to the local butcher shop/grocery store with a note to spend it on a couple of steaks. :D

  22. Humana People to People is a global network of aid agencies from more than 40 countries on five
    continents. Forged during the upheaval engendered by the system of Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s, Humana recognized that the end of colonialism and Apartheid in 1994 was not
    the end of suffering. While they had assisted in winning the fight for equality in South Africa, there were communities
    in need across the globe. The obvious continuation of their program to help people in South Africa was to extend this
    aid to the rest of the world. Thus, Humana People to People
    was born from the struggle for basic human rights
    for all people.

    To call Humana People to People an aid agency is to oversimplify its core guiding principles
    and its aim when it enters communities. Rather than simply offering aid in the way that
    one might cover a wound with a bandage, Humana seeks to transform whole communities, giving them tools that will enable them to solve
    their current problems and guard against issues that might arise in the future.
    This is a “top down” approach that maintains the only way
    to aid both people and communities is to fundamentally change the core elements that
    keep them from succeedi\
