Show your appreciation for your hard-working educators with this adorable kid-made Ladybug Teacher Thank You Card.
School is almost out for summer, so we want to show our teachers just how much we appreciate all they did for the kids this year. This ladybug teacher thank you card is a super cute project kids can make (or help make) themselves, with a surprise photo inside.
Kid-Made Ladybug Teacher Thank You Card
We originally made this ladybug card to go along with our teacher gifts at the end of the school year. However, these ladybug photo cards would also be perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week!
You could even tape a gift card inside, along with the photo. I know if I were a teacher I would be thrilled to get a Starbucks or Amazon GC or something like that!
I have quite a few friends who are teachers, and I was shocked to learn how many school supplies teachers buy with their own money. Let’s show our teachers how much we appreciate all they do for our community!

Ladybug Card Instructions
First, grab your free printable ladybug pattern and cut out the pieces. Trace the body and wings onto red card stock or construction paper. Trace the head onto black card stock. Cut out the pieces.
Punch a hole in the top of the “body” piece, as well as a hole in the top corner of each wing.
Align the three holes and secure with a brass fastener.
Glue the head to the back of the body.
Open the wings to reveal the inside of the card. Paste child’s photo here, leaving space to write your message.
Decorate the body with black spots (you can use a black marker or cut spots out of the remainder of your piece of black card stock). Feel free to add personality to your ladybug with google eyes, pipe cleaner legs, and more!
