SWIM TEACHER THANK YOU, free printable


We are just finishing swim lessons here, and let me just say that one of my children was less than courageous about being in the water. I watched from the side of the pool as my child clung desperately to dry land while his teacher gently coaxed him to get more than his bum and knees wet. Meanwhile I’m thinking, I should make sure to tell these poor teachers thank you. So we’re just taking a small token today. We thought about sweedish fish, but went with Odwala instead.

Here is a printable version of our thank you note, in case your swim teacher deserves a nod of appreciation as much as ours does.

Love this idea. It’s so simple but I am sure so very appreciated by those swim instructors on a hot, hot day.

How thoughtful of you! Odwalla is a great idea. It’s simple, refreshing, and inexpensive.

It’s easy to get caught up in thinking, ” Well, I can’t buy a big expensive present so I might as well not give anything at all…”

But, actually, sometimes the simplest and least expensive gifts are the very best.

Thanks for sharing.

What a great idea. We do a lot of homemade gift making and find that these tend to be far more appreciated than store bought ones.

Great idea! I never even thought of giving a thank you gift to the wonderful instructors. They have so much patience with our kids, especially mine who did like your boy and clung to the side or necks of the instructors! I would love to use your note card but cannot get it to download.

Hi Stefani,
Thanks so much for letting me know. I’ve emailed a copy to you. If you have any troubles getting it don’t hesitate to drop me another comment and I’ll make sure it gets to you.

Hi there, we’ll be doing swim lessons once our wee one is 6-8 months old (Infant swim classes.) I’d love to use your download but it’s not working for me either. Could I trouble you to email me it? Thank you so much!

Hi Charlotte,
Sorry about the trouble, yes, I will email them right over. And thanks for letting me know!

Super cute!
What is this stamp made of?!????
ruber? soap?

Hi Gabi,

I’m so glad you like it. The stamp is actaually made from a block of SpeedyCut (I think that’s what it’s called) made by Speedball. It’s made specifically for carving stamps, and you can find it at most craft stores. It’s pretty fun, you should give it a try some time.

Love the fish thank you but I cannot download it. Can you send it to my email? Thanks.

My son went to a kids fishing day and I thought your thank you cards were just what i was looking for to send to the men who helped that day. But I am also having trouble with downloading it. Could you email it to me? Thank you so much.


AmberLee April 19, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Sure think, Crystal! It is on its way. (p.s. a kids fishing day sounds like so much fun!)


Kristen May 13, 2011 at 11:28 am
