teacher appreciation treat boxes

May 15, 2014

This week has been teacher appreciation week at the kids’ daycare.  Considering all of the wonderful opportunities and learning that happens while they are there, I could hardly let the week pass without paying some thanks to the wonderful women who teach and take care of my babies during the day.  Last year the teachers got some chocolates with special messages telling them what makes them so special.  The gifts were such a hit, I thought of doing something similar this year…chocolates and special messages.  Moira was concerned that one of her teachers might be allergic to chocolate.  Lucky for them, they are not!


This little project came together pretty easily with some scrap paper crafting supplies and simple fry boxes.  They could definitely make a good gift for any time of the year…just fill with your chosen candy, jot some personal messages on the flags, and stuff with a gift card.


For this project, you’ll need:

  • fry boxes
  • pencils
  • scrapbook paper
  • embellishments and findings (letters, rhinestones, clips, cork, stickers, eft.)
  • stamps & ink
  • scissors
  • glue
  • chocolates & a gift card


Cut your scrapbook paper into banner shapes to wrap around your pencils.  Stamp, layer, and/or embellish with some glam as you see fit.  Glue them on.

Put a letter sticker on each fry box.


Write some little messages of thanks on your banners/flags.  Don’t forget to mention who it is from.


Fill with goodies and stick those pencils in.


Be ever so thankful for the hard work your teachers do–I know we are!

Here is another teacher appreciation gift I did a couple of years back…

    Great idea, and very cute. I love the little flags and think it’s so nice to put an “enjoy it now” little thing in with a gift card like that.
