Teacher Appreciation Favorite

Sharing is caring!

Hi Friends! 

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.

M & M Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

Here’s what you need: (contains affiliate links for your convenience)

 

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

Fill your mason jar with M & M's

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

M & M Teacher Appreciation Poem

Printed out this cute M&M poem…

Great Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

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.

Add decorative paper to the top of the mason 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.
