Why not say thank you to a hard-working teacher at the end of this school year with my handmade gift.

I know it’s rather cliche but there is no denying that well know association of an apple for teacher - and I thought I’d make a fun little guy that you could whip up as a quick gift.

Apparently the stereotype for giving an apple to an educator started in the early 1700s, when poor families in Scandinavia, gave teachers baskets of apples as payment for their children’s educations. And I recon giving a teacher an apple is still a kind way to them your appreciation!
