Teacher Jar

On the eleventh week before Christmas
My ICE Chicks gave to me,
a gift jar for a favorite teacher!



This play on words is a fun and clever idea for teachers, male or female. With a gift so easy and simple you can even spread a little cheer to other staff at school, such as the Librarian, PE & Music teachers, Principal and more!


“thanks for making me a smartie”

You could also add dumdum suckers to you jar and say
“thanks for making me a smartie, and not a dum dum”

Teachers will get a kick out of how clever and cute this simple and cheap gift is. All you need is a jar, smartie candies and a tag. You can decorate your tag to fit your teachers personality, here I added lots of bling with glitter in a fun stripe pattern to mimic the smarties. I used sticker letters for the thanks and smartie and the rest was hand written (have your child write it for an extra special touch).


Lastly I added a fun monogram with shimmer stickers and a ribbon to pull it all together.

enjoy!

Cute Heather! I made something similar a few years ago for "end of the year" teacher's gifts but they weren't nearly as cute as yours! ;-)
BTW, if you ever decide to turn your handwriting into a font, let me know because I want it! I LOVE your handwriting!
