• A Present for a Teacher 10 December 2012 | View comments

  • This year I wanted to do something extra special for my son's year 1 teacher as she is truly amazing.My son and I decided to make her a present and show her how much we think she is special. It was also a lot of fun doing it together

    Materials (and Ingredients)

    - A mason type jar with lid
    - A large bag of M&Ms
    - Card stock and ribbon for embellisments
    - Quote printed on paper

    How to

    1. Wash out your mason jar.  Make sure its perfectly dry before you start putting any M&Ms in it!

    2. In separate bowls, sort the M&Ms by color.  The reason for the big bag is that you will notice there are a lot more of some colors than others.  I had brown, orange and blue as my most prevelent colors.  I barely had enough red.

    3.  Layer the M&Ms in the jar being careful not to jostle the jar too much.  You want to try to make a uniform layer if you can....its actually quite hard to do.

    4. Put the lid on and embellish the lid with your cardstock, and tie on with ribbon.

    Here's the quote you may want to include if you'd like:

    Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.

    Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.

    Orange is for your warmth and caring style.

    Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.

    Red is for my life that you have touched this year.

    You’re a very special teacher just like this jar, that’s clear.

    You place knowledge in our children’s hands

    and melt into their hearts and lives forever.

    You’re a "Magnificent" & "Marvelous" teacher

    Thank you for being my M&M.
