Candy Jar for Teachers
To create this candy jar for your teacher, you simply find a smaller mason jar and fill it up with some yummy candy.
If you know your teachers favorite candy, even better!
If not you’re pretty safe choosing a colorful fun candy that most people enjoy.
Think M&Ms, Skittles, Milk Duds.
Since we used ours for a back to school gift for our teacher, we used Reese’s Pieces. It gave our candy jar a pretty fall look with the brown, orange and yellow colors.
This looks best with small bite sized candies.
It’s a great little gift to give your child’s teacher, along with sending a thank you note to the teachers from parents.
If your child wants to say thank you too, make sure to check out our thank you messages to teachers from students.
