This cute key ring is a great gift for your child’s teacher. Makes an ideal Valentine gift considering its heart shape. This can be made in different shapes too, and would also be great for Teacher Appreciation Week or a birthday present! Alternatively, you can skip the key ring step and glue a magnet on the back to display on her filing cabinet. Parental supervision is recommended
