Teacher birthday card ideas

Teachers invest in the lives and the futures of their students. Their involvement often changes the lives of their students, giving them a desire to learn and to grow into well-rounded individuals. When a teacher has a birthday, students may wish to present special birthday cards to their teacher to show their appreciation.

Apple for the Teacher

Apples and teachers seem to go together. One teacher birthday card idea incorporates the apple motif into the birthday card. Create a birthday card on the computer using fancy text and graphic functions. Print it out, fold and stick into an envelope.

Alternatively, create your own teacher birthday card by hand with copy paper. Fold the copy paper in half, then in half again, ending up with a blank card. On the front either draw a large apple or paste on a picture of an apple. The heading should read, "An apple for the teacher on your birthday." Inside take another apple picture, back with lightweight cardboard. You can also draw and colour the apple on the lightweight cardboard; cut it out. Cut a 1-inch wide, 3-inch long strip from the cardboard and fold it in half. Attach one side with glue or tape to the inside front of the card. Attach the apple to the upper side of the fold. This apple will pop cup when card is opened. On the other half of the open card, write your birthday greetings in verse or in prose. Sign your name.

Dunce Cap

Using construction paper, make a pointed hat by rolling and taping the paper into a conical shape. Cut the bottom to even out the base. This pointed hat is a dunce cap, something that used to be used on students who didn't learn their lessons or follow the teacher's directions. Flatten the dunce cap. On one side write, "Special Wishes to... (add the name of the teacher)." On the other side of the dunce cap, write, "who made one who sometimes felt like a dunce, feel smart. Thanks. Happy Birthday." This teacher birthday card will not fit a standard card envelope. You'll need a larger manila envelope for this card.

Graduation Cap

Fold a piece of copy or construction paper in half top to bottom. Find or draw a picture of a graduation cap on the folded paper, using most of the space. Cut out the graduation cap, leaving the fold in place. You now have a graduation cap-shaped card. On the outside, write "Happy Birthday to a Teacher who..." Inside, add, "cares enough to set me on the path of success." You can also add special ways you appreciate the teacher or appropriate jokes. To make this card extra special, have other classmates add their birthday wishes as well.
