A Creative Thank-You Card for Field Trip Parent Helpers

By Beth Newingham on June 27, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

In addition to this fun thank-you card idea, the following is a great thank you card for parents who have chaperoned a small group of students on a field trip.

I used Microsoft Word to write THANK YOU!, printing each letter on a separate piece of paper. I glued each letter on a colored piece of construction paper and had my students hold up the letters for a picture. When making the card, I glue the thank-you picture on the front and have the kids sign their names on the inside.

When parents have helped a small group of students instead of the whole class, I take a second picture of the smaller group holding up a sign that says VERY MUCH. The class thank you picture is on the front of the cards, and the VERY MUCH picture is glued on the inside of the card.
