This year, I have the distinct honor of being a Quaker Classroom Ambassador! This means that I get to help spread the word about the partnership between Quaker and Adopt A Classroom. From now until September 30th, you can purchase specially-marked Quaker products and enter the unique codes online. For every single code entered, Quaker will donate $1 to AdoptAClassroom.org – up to $250,000 (with a minimum donation of $150,000) to help fuel classrooms and help teachers across the country. Just for entering the code, you’ll get $1 off Quaker products.

It also means that I get to remind parents how valuable our teachers are to our families. Did you know that teachers spend more than $1 billion each school year stocking their own classrooms? That’s a lot of out-of-pocket scratch for those amazing educators that spend the better part of their days, five days a week, with our kids. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to show our appreciation, so here are some amazing and easy DIY teacher gift ideas that you can do with your kids year ’round!
