Teacher Gift — You’re My M&M Jar

21 Jun

I can barely recognize myself these days with my craftiness!!!

First it was the rainbow cupcake cake, and now these awesome teachers’ gifts.

I saw the idea on this blog.

I went to Michael’s and bought several jars for each of the kids teachers.  I filled each with a bag of M&Ms attached a poem:

Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.

Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.

Orange is for your warmth and caring style.

Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.

Red is for my life that you have touched this year.

You’re a very special teacher just like this jar, that’s clear.

You place knowledge in our children’s hands

and melt into their hearts and lives forever.

You’re a “Magnificent” & “Marvelous” teacher

Thank you for being my M&M.

I had each of  my kids sign the note and attached it with rainbow lanyard.  It’s a great holder for a gift card too!

To be honest I’m still a little frustrate about  teacher’s gifts but this is one is pretty sweet.

And tomorrow is the last day of school :)
