Teacher Appreciation Favorite

Hi Friends! 

Little Miss Monogram, one of my sponsors, has a great Mother’s Day deal going on with their PSA Essentials personalized stamps!  Now through May 1st, if a customer orders a personalized stamp (on-sale for $30, regularly $40) – they can get a FREE Rosetta Peel & Stick stamp set ($15 value.)    That’s $55 of PSA for $30.  That’s a great deal.  I recently received a PSA Essentials stamp and I’ve been thrilled with it.

Today I’ve got an oldie, but goodie to share with you guys.  With teacher appreciation week just over a week and a half away for us here in the US (where has this school year gone!)… and in case you missed this post… here is one of my all-time favorite Teacher Appreciation gift ideas.

 

 

I used mason jars, the same as I used for my Pottery Barn Candleholders.

Filled them with M&M’s… plain & peanut

Printed out this cute M&M poem…

Glued it to some cardstock to frame it out…

Hole punched around the edges & then weaved the twine through the holes & attached the poem with some twine to the jar.

I traced the lid on top of some leftover vellum paper to make a cute top to fit in the lid.

Easy-peasy ~ CUTE and Yummy gift!

Of course you can customize this with any type of clear container… your teacher’s favorite colored paper… some cute ribbon instead of twine.

Here’s the poem (in case you want to copy, paste & use)

Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.

Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.

Orange is for your warmth and caring style.

Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.

Red is for my life that you have touched this year.

You’re a very special teacher just like this jar, that’s clear.

You place knowledge in our children’s hands

and melt into their hearts and lives forever.

You’re a “Magnificent” & “Marvelous” teacher

Thank you for being my M&M.

    Thank you for this super cute idea! My son’s daycare teachers will love these!

    I used plain M&Ms, and changed up the poem a little bit to include brown:

    Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.
    Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.
    Orange is for your warmth and caring style.
    Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.
    Brown is for when you know to hold me near.
    Red is for my life that you have touched this year.
    You’re a “Magnificent & Marvelous’ teacher.
    Thank you for being my M&M.
