There are teachers and then there are those teachers who go above and beyond what is required of them in their classrooms.
I’m so thankful my children have been blessed with those teachers who go that extra mile to pour into their lives.
How to make a unique Teacher Appreciation gift with crayons
This is incredibly easy to make and can be done in under half an hour, using 5 things only.
3 packs of 16 crayons
A mason jar that’s a little bigger in height to the crayons
A colored ribbon of choice (7/8th inch)
A hot glue gun
1. Hot glue ribbon around the mouth of the jar.
2. Now apply a dab of hot glue on a crayon
and stick it on the jar, vertically.
Do this till the jar is covered all the way around with crayons.
3. Now measure out enough ribbon to wrap around the jar plus 5 or so extra inches on either side. Cut the ribbon, wrap it around the middle of the jar once and tie a bow.
This would make a great pen/pencil holder, a vase for flowers or even a cute container to hold treats for the kids in class.
Another super cool idea would be to gift your child’s teacher his/her very own unique gum holder.
Is there such a thing?
Well, now there is!
Make sure you pick up the new Extra® 35-stick packs, in Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice® flavors,
for this project.
The new Extra® 35-stick packs are not only packed with more gum but sit in a reusable, durable, plastic box that’s perfect to make the gum holder to sit on a teacher’s desk.
To make your gum holder, you will need all the materials used for the pencil holder/vase/container above. (You won’t need as many crayons though. Just one pack of 16 will suffice.)
Instructions to make a unique Gum Holder for a teacher
1. Hot glue the ribbon around the gum pack, all the way around, right below the lid.
Do this for both the front face and back.
Isn’t this such a great gift idea?
Homemade crayon gifts are always well received and look so pretty.
And when a gum holder is involved, then you push unique to a new level!
Honestly, with a little creativity and time, I’m sure there are more fun, gum gift ideas we could add to this growing list.
