Get the school year off to a great start with this teacher survival kit full of small items for your child’s teacher.
My kids started school last week at a brand new school. Like last Monday was the first time the school had ever been opened. I have to say that for a brand new school, things went fairly smoothly.
I found out at the open house that my 2nd grader’s teacher had just been hired a few days prior to school opening. Talk about playing catch up! So I decided to put together a little teacher survival kit to help her out and hopefully give her a good laugh.
I started with a bunch of fun school supplies. I included items that were on the teacher’s supply list for the kids – like Paper Mate erasable red pens.
I also threw in a few fun items, like the four-color Paper Mate pens and of course lots of fun colored Sharpies. I then added some fun items like anti-acids, aspirin, a lint roller, and some candies.
I put all the supplies in a quart canning jar. I closed the jars with plastic storage caps. I love these! They are reusable and work great for anything but canning.
I made up some fun labels to decorate the kits. I made a pink and orange one for my daughter’s teacher, but also made blue and red as well as a plain green one for more personalization.
I cut out the labels and then used glue dots to stick them to canning jars. I replaced the canning lids with a more user-friendly storage lid.
Then I added a ribbon to make it look pretty. I love this idea because they are quick and easy to make and, I hope, useful for the teachers.
As a former teacher I can state that I’d definitely have been delighted to have received this! Thanks for sharing at Over the Moon.
