Home School Teacher Appreciation Day is Thursday, April 28, and HSLDA is celebrating with giveaways, encouraging blog posts, and more! Your homeschool teacher works hard all year round, so show her just how much she means to you on this special day of recognition. Give her a day she deserves by showering her with delicious food and gifts she’ll love. And while in most families Mom is the primary teacher, Dad is just as important! Check out our Teacher Appreciation Day Pinterest board to find creative ways to thank him!

FOOD & DRINKS
Honey Mint Green Iced Tea
She makes life pretty sweet, right? Show her just how sweet by making this refreshing Honey Mint Green Iced Tea from Will Cook For Smiles. It’s got mint, green tea, honey, and a touch of vanilla to make it extra delicious.
This year, give her the gift of health. Rather than making carb-loaded desserts, try bowls of Greek yogurt with sliced strawberries and blueberries drizzled with honey. Sprinkle some nuts or granola on top for an extra treat. It’s the dessert that loves her back – and she’ll love you for it.
Let’s get real: no celebration is complete without a little indulgence. This decadent, yet simple Slow Cooker Reuben Dip from All Recipes will be a party in her mouth. Melt some Swiss Cheese on top, pair with pita chips, and watch her try and stay away from it (hint: she won’t be able to).
Eating veggies doesn’t have to be boring! The Kitchn is an excellent resource for all-things-food, but they hit the ball out of the park with their kale chips. Spice it up with some Sriracha, parmesan and pepper, or paprika and chipotle seasoning.
Baked Parmesan Zucchini
Finish your veggie spread with this Baked Parmesan Zucchini (who said a veggie spread has to be carrots, broccoli, and ranch dressing?). Diethood has a recipe for Baked Parmesan Zucchini – quarter them lengthwise and spice it up a little more. We won’t tell if you add more cheese.
Parmesan and Asiago Cheese Roasted Tomatoes
I’m completely obsessed with tomatoes. And cheese. This is a recipe for tomatoes AND cheese, and I have to share it. Cooking Classy has got me starry-eyed over their Parmesan and Asiago Cheese Roasted Tomatoes, and I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t pass it on.
Coffee Face Mask
Help her pamper herself! This face mask will leave her skin moisturized and glowing.
Instructions: Ground two tablespoons of coffee until it resembles a fine powder. Combine with two tablespoons of honey and mix well.
Application: Massage mask onto face using circular motions. Leave on face for twenty minutes before rinsing.
Set Mom’s mood with this relaxing spring playlist. Listen on Spotify!
From breakfast in bed to a family day out, everyone’s celebration looks a little bit different. Use our ideas to jumpstart your planning and let your favorite teacher know how appreciated she is. In case your favorite homeschool teacher is Dad, find fun activities on Pinterest that will show Dad how grateful you are for his love, time, and sacrifice.
