Teacher Appreiciation Gift – M&M’s

This is an easy and cute gift to do for teacher appreciation week.


Materials needed:


Big bag of M&Ms

Metal Tin or something similar found at Pat Catan’s or Michaels


Hole Puncher

Card Stock




Since there are brown M&Ms in the bag and not in the poem, I elected to take out the brown ones and then put them in the tin. If you do not want to pick thru the whole bag and just keep the brown ones in, you can just pour the M&Ms into the container you will be using.


I just used a piece of scrap ribbon to tie the poem on. I printed it on card stock.


The 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 place knowledge in my hands,

That melt into my heart and live forever!

You’re a “Magnificent & Marvelous” teacher!

Thank you for being my M&M!

Hair Feather Extension

Hair Feather Extension

Instructions:  Take a small section of hair and apply a small amount of water. Once the hair is wet, twist the hair to bring all the strands together nicely. Now, slip on the micro link on the end of your hair and slide it all the way up to the root of the hair. Once the micro link is in place, slip the end of the feather into the micro link. Once you have the feather placed, make sure a small amount of the feather is sticking out the top of the micro link. Take a pair of pliers and clamp down on the link.

Single Loom Band Bracelet

Single Loom Band Bracelet


            – Loom

            – Loom Bands

            – Loom Hook

            – “C” Clip


Instructions:  The first step is to put a loom band on two pegs.  Make sure the arrows are facing AWAY from where you start.  Next, overlap another loom band on the next pegs.  See pictures.


Do this the whole way until you reach the other end.


After all loom bands are on, flip the loom so the arrows are now facing you.  Starting with the second loom band (not the first), get your hook and grab it.  Hook it over to the next band.  See picture.


Do this the whole way to the end.


When you get to the end, take the last band and stretch it over to the peg beside it.


Get your “C” clip and slip it on the last band.


You can now remove the bracelet from the loom.


Take the first band that you did not hook and slip it onto the “C” clip.  Your bracelet is now complete.
