School has been back a few weeks now and everyone is getting into their routines. Charlie just completed his second week of Pre-K! So exciting!
Most schools do a Back to School Night or Open House. This is a fantastic time to drop off a little gift for the teacher!
We did not do the whole “back to school” gift for teachers this year because it's our first year and we got a late invite to the Pre-K program. If you didn't do a back to school gift for the teachers, remember they'll appreciate little gifts ALL YEAR! These are the folks that are taking care of and educating our kids. They deserve a little pick-me-up every now and then, especially those working with the little ones like mine!
At Charlie's Open House, we were able to take a little tour of the school, check out his classroom and see some of the things he has done so far.
After watching a room full of 4 year olds run around showing their parents the room, I can only imagine the amount of stress his sweet teacher feels by the end of the day. I made an easy little gift for his teacher and another for his aide. Don't forget about the aide! In a Pre-K room, this woman is just as important!
To create our easy teacher gift, I grabbed a few things I think the teachers could definitely use!
See how simple this is going to be?
I picked up this super cute mason jar tumbler at Walmart! I opted for a plastic version because, you know… kids.
Now, to fill up our mason tumbler, I first grabbed a SNICKERS®! The regular size ones that you can pick up right at checkout fit perfectly inside in the cup. SNICKERS® come packed with roasted peanuts, nougat, caramel and milk chocolate. Yummy! They'll handle your hunger, so you handle the things in life that aren't related to hunger at all, like that room of 4 year olds!
I also tossed in a couple of other items that I know will be appreciated: some fun mini-pens, a couple of flavor packets for water, and some hand sanitizer (we know those kids are covered in germs).
Now, for the cutesy part. I made up some printable gift tags to put the whole thing together. You can click on the image below to download or print them for free!
I actually laminated my tags after I cut them out. If you have heavy cardstock to print on, that will work just fine as well!
To tie the gift tag onto the jar, I used raffia ribbon, but any or twine should work. First, wrap your ribbon around the bottom of where the lid screws on. Put each end of the ribbon through the gift tag. Now, tie your bow! So easy and so cute!
I can't imagine what an Early Education Teacher turns into when they're hungry, but I want to try to prevent that! Take the quiz below to see who you are when you're hungry!
