back to school teacher gift + printable

Hello there! I’m Deanna, event designer and editor of Mirabelle Creations. I’m so happy to be here at The Celebration Shoppe, sharing a super simple back to school teacher appreciation craft that you can do with your kiddos!

All teachers love a little something at the beginning of the school year and these Edible School “Glue” Sticks, inspired by the traditional Elmer’s Washable Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks, and fun “So happy to be stuck with you this year!” free printables are a great way to show your appreciation. Plus, they are easy for little hands because they’re simply filled with York Peppermint Pieces candies! But a warning, make sure you have extras because while making these as many candies went into my helpers’ mouths as did into the containers!

The idea for these Edible School “Glue” Sticks came to me last week while shopping for school supplies with my kids and a school supplies themed craft for the teachers seemed like a great way to start off the school-year.

What you’ll need:

And here are the simple steps:

  1. Fill the bottom of the push-up-pops container with a layer of blue candies, about ½ inch thick. Fill the remainder of the push-up-pops container with white candies.
  2. Tape the top of the push-up-pops container closed.
  3. Cut two pieces of orange ribbon, the length of the circumference of the container.
  4. Fold one piece of ribbon in half, lengthwise, securing it with glue dots. Attach it around the bottom edge of the push-up-pops container using the glue dots.
  5. Wrap the other piece of ribbon around the top of the push-up-pops, securing to the bottom edge of the container lid. The taller ribbon at the top will mimic the cap of the glue stick.
  6. Print the Edible School “Glue” Stick label on a full sheet of white sticker paper or regular paper and attach with tape.
  7. Print the I’m so happy to be “stuck” with you tag on cardstock. Punch out the tag and attach with string or ribbon.

Now you’re all set to show your teachers how excited you are about this new school year! Enjoy!

And as always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

    I comment when I like a post on a site or if I have something
    to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It is a result of the sincerness
    displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article back to
    school teacher gift + printable. I was moved enough to post a thought :
    ) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s
    okay. Could it be only me or does it look like
    some of these comments appear like coming from brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow
    everything new you have to post. Would you list the
    complete urls of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Before you decide to add a dietary supplement in your
    weight loss program, it is very important to determine the tupes of dietary supplemengs available and
    the benefits it provides. One of the easiest ways tto prevent a false result is by alerting yourr physician
    to anyy medications you may be taking, prescription or over the
    counter, and usage of herbal remedies. Weight
    loss supplements are items thyat many individuals rely
    on when they are trying to lose weight.
