Teacher Appreciation Week IDEAS - Part 3 - free printables

Part 3 is all the gifts we handed out this year. I made something for each day of the week and it was for not only the boys main teachers but pod teachers, music (2), art (2), P.E.(2), library, principal, asst. principal, receptionist, and nurse!!! Whew! It took a lot of time but I wanted ALL the teachers/staff to know how much we appreciate everything they do.

WARNING: TONS of pictures :)






Something extra for the librarian from :) Boys made the tag

I started the week with something cute, clever and inexpensive! LOVE IT!


Found glitter koozies for $1and I had a 20% off my total coupon!!!

Tags are printed on 4x6 photo paper and punched out with a scalloped 1 7/16 (37mm) lever punch

A few months back I found these bling office supplies that were so cute and on sale for 40% off AND I had a 25% off coupon for my total including sale items!! WHOOHOO! Made the most expensive item (stapler) only $1.81. Everything else was around $.80

AND they came in PURPLE too!!!!


For the main teachers

For the pod, music, art, P.E., library, principal, asst. principal, receptionist, and nurse

Last year I did the layered mini M&M's in larger jars (LOVE M&M's!!!) but since I was including so many teachers I found these smaller jars and a cute little tag.

Before I started I HAD to take some rainbow M&M pictures!

Tags are printed on 4x6 photo paper

I've seen these SUPER cute chocolate dipped oreos on Etsy so I did some research and made my own!!! This was extremely easy but because it was late I didn't take very many pictures. I'll do a tutorial on it soon with all my other designs. 
And finally......cake baked in a jar!!! 

colored the batter

transferred batter to ziplock bags and clipped the corners to fill the jars

Placed in a pan with 1/4 inch of water. Baked at 350 for 40 minutes

Let cool and made a buttercream icing and colorful sprinkles

Added tags and I was done!!!! Yay for teachers and a week of spoiling them!

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. As a stay at home mom, having a preschooler and one soon entering preschool I have become OBSESSED with crafting and doing fun little projects for snack time. My question to you is I'm loving the tags and punches to boot but where in the world or how in the world do you create these I can't seem to figure it out. Is a program? Any advice on getting started would be greatly appreciated. Not looking to start a business or anything just a personal hobby to get me away from cleaning, laundry, cooking day to day activities : ) thank you......Sasha

  2. Hello,

    Where do you get the jars for the layered M&M's (small ones) and the ones for the cake in a jar?

  3. All of the pictures show as "content protected by user". I was hoping to get some good ideas for TPA. Any ideas on how I can see your wonderful ideas? Thanks!
