Cute gift idea for Teachers Year End gifts

So Miss V and I have been looking all over Pinterest for cute gift ideas for her "specials" (PE, Music, Art, Librarian and Resource) teachers.  We found a cute gumball idea, so I ran out to Walmart last night.

I bought a case of half pint jars, a large container of gumballs and two spools of ribbon that are the school's colors.

She filled the jars while I printed up the little poem.  The poem says:
Thanks for "chewsing" to be an awesome teacher this year!


I have had a ball with you!

I used the script Anmari.

I cut them into circles and placed them on the lid and then screwed on the bands.

This morning she quickly put them on all their desks while they were not there.  She loves doing little surprise type of things.

Teacher Appreciation Week

I totally spaced this week and didn't know it was Teacher Appreciation Week.  Luckily another mom mentioned it.

I quickly googled ideas and found a cute cup idea.

They are travel cups found at Walmart for just a few dollars and they are filled with Country Time Lemonade packets and Crystal light packets.

The little poem for the teacher says "Mrs. XXXXXXXX Thank you for quenching our thirst for knowledge, Love Your Ducklings"  (that is the cute phrase she calls the kids)

I also made two others for Miss V's Resource Teacher and the Librarian.  With the same saying but just from Miss V and of course those are printed in her favorite color, LIME Green!

Oh and I will make some others for the teachers as year end gifts.  I will just have to find some other cute poem related to the "specials" (PE, Music....etc)
