Kids Corner: Teacher Thank You Gift

Tis the season to show appreciation for all the folks in your life, including those teachers who spend a good chunk of the day with your kids in their care. Here's a sweet gift to spread some holiday cheer and express your gratitude, as well.

Simply fill a mason jar with ingredients for hot chocolate or chocolate chip cookies. Give the lid some color with a circle of holiday-inspired paper. Tie a string or ribbon around the neck and include a cute gift tag sentiment, like this free printable from the blog, Skip to My Lou. You can print them on card stock, or why not make them a little more special by adhering the tag to a wooden tag shaped like a mason jar? Easy enough that the kids can help, and this gift is sure to be much appreciated!

Cupcake + Mason Jar = The Perfect Gift

If there are two things we all love these days, they are cupcakes and mason jars. So why not put the two together? Whether you buy or bake the cupcake yourself, simply place it on the inside of a jar lid and, holding the jar upside down, carefully slide it over the cupcake and twist the jar into the lid. And viola! Instant gift that anyone will love. And the recipient can reuse the jar, too. Double the love!
