This is one of the easiest gifts you can put together for teacher appreciation week!
The card attached says:
“Mrs. Rogers, Because of you I’m a SMARTIE, not a DUM DUM! Love, Ethan”
Bucket ($1): I took off the shovel so the handle lays flat against the bucket.
Plastic Grass ($1.50): I used 3 packages so that the grass was packed nice and tight and the pencils and candy could stick up more easily without falling over
Dum Dum Suckers ($2.50): I only used 5-7
Smartie Candies ($2.50): I only used 5-7
Pencils ($1): I used 5
*I got all the supplies listed above @ WalMart
Other supplies not pictured that I had on hand: silk flowers, hot glue, marker, ribbon & white cardstock
1. Using your hot glue, attach the silk flowers to each pencil.
2. Fill the bucket with the plastic grass.
3. Stick candy and flower pencils into the bucket, making sure you have a variety of colors and that each item is snug and wont fall over easily. You can skip the pencils and give more candy, I just liked the dimension of the flower and the height the pencils gave.
4. Tie a ribbon around the bucket.
5. Write and attach a card.
…and you’re DONE!!!
What a fun and easy way to say “Thanks” to a teacher!
