DIY teacher appreciation gift

If you were a fruit, you’d be a fine-apple! In this guest post, the lovely Simone from Play with Food has created a delicious DIY teacher appreciation gift idea (with free printable) for the special helpers in your life this year…

It’s the time of year when we start to look for end-of-year gifts. This is something that you can make with the kids for their teachers, babysitters or coaches. It’s a fun way to show your appreciation for all the fine work that they do.

The card printable gives you a gift tag with the instructions for making a moist and delicious pineapple slice. Download the printable here – DIY teacher appreciation gift – Pineapple Slice Printable. You provide the dry ingredients and the tin of crushed pineapple and they just need to add an egg and some butter.

The Dry Ingredients:
1 cup (125g) plain flour
145g soft brown sugar
