Easy Teacher Gift Idea

So, last year I waited until the last minute to get my kids’ teachers an end-of-the-year gift.  (Truthfully, it happens every year.  I know.  I’m terrible.)

I had over 10 gifts to make, so I wanted to do something quick and easy.

I bought some canning jars, dollar store baskets, polka-dot straws, lemonade, gum, and yellow flowers.  I wanted the gift to look bright and summery.

I snapped the photo above quickly on my phone thinking, “maybe I can share this on my blog next year?!”  Smile

So I apologize for not having better pictures, but I am just throwing this idea out there to ya!

I did snap a picture of me making holes in the top of my canning jar lids with a hammer and screw driver.

Oh, and one more of the paper straw that I put inside the canning jars…

But that’s it.  I was rapidly trying to put these gifts together so the picture taking stopped.

I put about half of the jars in baskets as gifts, but I left the other half alone for Jonathan’s middle school teachers.  For his teachers, I just put some of those little individual-sized lemonade packets inside each jar, and tied a note to the straw that said, “Have a Sweet Summer.”

For the baskets, I wrote “Hope your summer is as sweet as you!” on a card and stuck it in the flowers.

So easy, but fun!

Here are a few more teacher gift baskets that I found on Pinterest that I thought you might like…
