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!

Teacher Appreciation Gift – Money Book

I made this for my daughters Kindergarten teacher last year.  She was awesome!  I send in a letter with an envelope to each student asking them to send in $1 and why they loved Mrs. Feeney.  I received all but maybe 4 or 5 back.  For those who didn’t send something in, I just printed their name on one of the pages.


I took cardboard and covered it with fabric.  I took vellum and printed each students response with their name.  I used a paper cutter to cut them neatly and used a hole punch to punch holes in them.  I put them all together and then slipped in a dollar bill in between each piece of vellum.  I finished it off by putting in a nice sparkly box!
