The girls officially went “Back to School” a couple of weeks ago and I decided to make one of the ideas I had found on Pinterest back in the spring when I was making the end of the school year gifts.
I have been saving some mason jar glasses I found at the Dollar Store for a couple of months for this gift. Whenever I see something that looks like it may have potential at the Dollar Store, I will pick it up and keep it for a future project! I picked up nine of the glasses and the girls have six teachers this year, so I had three extra to give to the office/secretary staff at my new school which was perfect. All I needed to buy was some snickers and almond joy candy. I also made some tags to hang on the glasses that were coordinated to the straws (orange, blue, and green).
These glasses were extra cute because they had a chalkboard label, so I could put each of the teachers name on the label.
I think it is really important to let teachers and staff know how important they are and how much you appreciate their time and energy everyday. Throughout the year, I hope to be able to give the teacher’s little tokens of appreciation!!
