Teacher Treats


It was my turn to bring the teacher appreciation treats to school, and I found this awesome idea for a "Marvelous and Magnificent" teacher.  I found the original idea here.  I loved it, but had to make 15 of these so the larger plastic paint cans were out of the budget.  Luckily, I found these cute mason jars at Michael's that were only $1.29, and a 20% off entire purchase coupon!  My other stroke of luck, a BOGO on M&Ms at Publix.  Just fill up the jars, pick out a cute polka-dot ribbon and tie the poem to the side.  It was so easy, that the hardest part was not eating any of the M&Ms.

I'm a graphic designer by trade, so I thought the poem card could use some sprucing up.  I also thought it would be nice to share it with everyone else, so if you like the design you can print it at the end of this post.  This is such a cute idea that could work for so many different situations.  With a few tweaks to the poem, you could celebrate an "M&M" mom or dad, a volunteer or even a good friend.

  13. LOVE your version over the original! As a classroom teacher, I also love your suggestion to use these to recognize my volunteers. I had no problem printing the poem, but would love to customize the M&M logo side to say "volunteer" instead of "teacher". Would you be able to modify for me and email to jmmaen@yahoo.com? Thanks so much for your idea & your printable!
