Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Swim Teacher Gift

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

My boys just finished up their private swimming lessons with the best swim teacher ever so we wanted to make he ra Swim Teacher Gift! She is amazing & they are swimming so well now. When we spotted this free printable from Lil Luna (one of our favorite blogs) we just had to make this! We used goldfish instead because I am pretty sure their swim teacher does not eat candy.

Swimming lessons have been the best money I have ever spent. Having 3 boys and knowing they are safe in the pool is a must for me. I used to worry myself sick when we went swimming trying to keep track of all of them! Plus, swimming teachers should receive appreciation gifts just like any other teacher….right?!

Swim Teacher Appreciation Gift

1 Clear Pail 
Goldfish Crackers
Free Printable 
Blue Shredded Paper 
Washi Tape
Hot Glue Gun


We started out snipping off pieces of the washi tape & lining it around the edges of the lid like this….

Then glue on the printable….

Use washi tape to decorate around the sides then glue on the front printable….

Line the bottom with the blue shredded paper (or you could use blue M&M’s) & then fill with Goldfish crackers. We used regular and baby crackers. Here is my 2 year old showing the handle….

My boys also colored their swim teacher cards…..

She loved it! This is such a fun & easy craft to make a swim teacher. Kids can also make this themselves!! We have included our affiliate links.
