Get the school year off to a great start with this teacher survival kit full of small items for your child’s teacher.

Teacher Survival Kit

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 graders 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.

Teacher Survival Kit

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.
