Berry Jam Teacher Appreciation Gift | printable

it’s that time of year again, time for teacher appreciation week. if you have been searching the internet for something to give your teacher, here is an idea that is simple and yummy. how about giving your teacher a jar of homemade jam.

i made these for my kid’s teachers on the last day of school last year, and they were a big hit. i made their everyday teachers large jars of jam, and other teacher helpers and workers around the school got small jars of jam.

freezer jam is super simple to make. all you need is strawberries, sugar, and a box of Sure-jell (comes in a yellow box). follow the directions for the freezer jam. i use my blender to puree the 2 cups of strawberries. make sure to measure your ingredients accurately. one box makes approximately two large mason jars or 5 small mason jars of jam.

and there is no wrapping necessary.  i have include the free berry jam printable for you to use. just print it onto cardstock and place it between the jar lids. you can also tie a ribbon with a card to top. there are too option to choose from, “Thanks for being a BERRY nice teacher” and “Thanks for being BERRY sweet.”

Honey Teacher Gift

Every year, i try to give my boy’s teachers a beginning of the school year gift. I don’t know…..I think that it makes the teachers excited to start the year with my kiddies and to know that i am an involved parent. I want them to know that I am willing to help them out during the school year and that I appreciated them.
This year, I decided to give them honey bears. and designed a little circle tag that said…
“This is Going to BEE a Great Year! – And I loved how they turned out. A sweet and simple gift.
I’ve also designed a square tag that looked nice on this beehive shaped bottle that I found at the store.
I love the hive shape of the bottle, however, the honey bear is my fave.
If you would like to make this gift for your teacher, i have included this free printable for you to download.  it includes two sizes of the circle and square tags so that you can choose the best size for your honey bottles.
I can already tell, this is going to BEE a great year!
